Bus service from Cuenca to Manta?

Because the Cuenca airport will soon be closed for a month, where can I go to find if there is any bus service from Cuenca to Manta, preferably by a direct route. A travel agency? Or go to a bus line office? Even by air it seems like a 2-day air flight from Cuenca to Quito then to Manta, and there are no direct non-stop flights between Guayaquil and Manta, so I guess bus service is best. Any advice? I have an Ecuador driver’s license but am afraid to drive to Manta by rental car (can you blame me?) Thank you,
