Alternatively, a local bus leaves from Rivas bus station to Las Salinas at 5am, 9am, 11am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, 4:00pm, 4:30pm and 5:00pm. The Rivas bus terminal is hectic to say the least. Look for the bus going to Las Salinas or Tola. Only get on these busses.
Local buses are very economical (~$2 US Dollars) and can take up to 2½ hours to arrive.
If traveling by bus, keep an eye out for the large white Magnific Rock sign on the left-hand side of the road. Depart the bus here and follow the road 1.5 kilometers to the end, where Magnific Rock is located.
**Bob recommends not taking a local 'chicken' bus during Semana Santa and other holiday periods as they're very cramped and often won't stop to pick up more people.
