We booked the whole day Nicaragua tour from Costco Travel at Dreams Las Mareas. I really wanted to see the Masaya Volcano and get a glimpse of Moulton Lava. There are only 3 volcanos in the world to boast a lake of magma, Hawaii's Kilauea,...More

I decided to get a night tour from Granada with a friend to Volcan Masaya. On the drive up you get a quick stop at a viewpoint at Lake Masaya before you head up to the Volcano itself. The view into the volcano was breathtaking....More

Most people go for the night visit which was indeed awesome but I also enjoyed seeing the volcano during the day when there were fewer people, it was less rushed, and you sense the scope of the size

A sensational place to visit. Peering into the crater you can see actual molten bubbling lava. What a great site. A must if you are in the area

I was here in April. Night trip. You can see really just the pick of the lava. I expected a lot more. I think it would have been cool if more lava was exposed. But in the current condition it's an over rated trip

This is your unique chance to see an active volcano so close, you can hear the lava. It is a great experience for the kids.

On a day trip from Costa Rica to Granada stopped here and was absolutely fascinated by actually looking right down into a giant hole in the Earth and actually seeing the molten lava. They say you don't always see molten lava but it must have...More

Almost every time we visit Nicaragua, we come to this volcano. Our 6 year old son is obsessed with volcanos. The little exposition about volcanos in general and the Masaya volcano is perfect for him. In August 2016 we watched the lava in the evening....More

Will tours be running and will the Park be open on Good Friday - April 14, 2017 during Santa Semana (Holy Week). We were advised by a tour operator that the park might be closed.

I do not know.

Does anyone know if it is possibly to drive your own car up to the volcano park entrance? Is the drive very rough? Do you then have to take a guide/bus from the park entrance to the crater?

You can drive your own car and you don't need a guide. The ride is pretty smooth but can be long if there is a lot of people. Arrive early if you go in the evening. Just follow all the other cars and you will get there. You... More
