The town of El Cuá is the main entrance to the municipality. It can be reached from the city of Matagalpa, after passing the towns of El Tuma and La Dalia. Another way to get there is by traveling from Jinotega and take the road to Asturias, where you will find a detour to El Cuá. Once in town, you can also continue on the same road to get to San José de Bocay, and then to Ayapal. If you want to visit the indigenous communities, you have to take a boat and travel down to the Coco River (also called Wagki) and the Bocay River.
