Volcano in MASAYA






























We went to the Masaya volcano today. It's definitely worth a visit when you are in the Managua, Masaya, Granada area of Nicaragua. There are various tourist packages available for purchase as you arrive at the main park entrance. The prices (for foreigners) range from $5 to $20, depending on the tour you choose. If you go during the day, there is a three-hour walking tour for $5. One of the night visits, one-hour and 15 minutes, costs $6. There are quite a few other options.

Oh, and if you are wondering, yes this is the place high-wire daredevil Nik Wallenda did his walk, with the live volcano below.

  2. This is a great place to visit for tourists and Nicaraguans alike. The sulfur smell is a little strong, but when else will you be so close to an active volcano and be able to look inside. There is also some hiking that can be done there.
