Taxis do not use meters, so be sure to always agree on a price before getting into a taxi.

Buses are another option. The routes can be a bit slower but more adventurous. Buses are a very common method of transportation in Nicaragua.

Most likely the easiest way of getting around is renting a car, which you can do with or without a driver included. Obviously the driver will know how to get pretty much anywhere you want to go, but if a total lack of street signs and directions made up of "how many blocks toward the lake" or "turn at the leaning tree" do not phase you, then driving around the city and the countryside can be very rewarding.
