There is a shuule sevice, Gecko Explorer, they have website. I have used them for a round trip between Antigua and El Tunco. The we're late picking us up, coming back there was a truckers strike at the border and had to spend an extra night in El Tunco, no fault of the company on that one. They also continue onto Leon, $75. Take a look at the website.

We went from Leon to Antigua with the Bigfoot hostel shuttle (3 am to 7 pm, $55):

Also check out Transportes del Sol (no overnight in El Salvador like some of the other buses). But they go from Guatemala City to Managua:

Thanks to everyone for speedy responses. We have decided to go by air as I don't think a 16 hr trip would be suitable for our age. If we were still in our twenties, then no problem.

If you can afford it, why not. I will be the first to admit those long bus rides are no fun and fly myself when I go to Nicaragua or Costa Rica.
