It is an interesting spot and never the less take time to read the pamphlet, its more fun than walking all the way to the crater. Tip; take a taxi from Masaya for $10 to drive you all the way up. Its a 6 km walk on the paved road with hardly shade. Be sure to bargin with the driver and dont be satisfied with the first if he won't go for $10. When it rains or has just rained, the chances are good to see lava during the day time.
