Once in a lifetime view from the rim of a very active volcano! You can go in the evening for $10 a person for non Nicaraguan nationals, it's a bit expensive but worth it. The crater has an active lava lake at this time which...More

Great experience. It is impressive to arrive at this huge crater and see lava boiling a few hundred meters down. It is possible to go on your own: we took a chicken bus from Granada (10C) to Masaya center and visited the Artesania market (disappointing),...More
Wow! Seeing the lava move in a volcano is amazing! Like others said you have a limited time you can be at the site but it is well worth the trip. The drive up is pretty too so take a moment to enjoy.
There are not too many places in the world where you can look right down into a live volcano, so if you are in Nicaragua, don't miss this. We went from Granada on a guided day trip. You are only allowed to stay at the...More

Go at night for amazing views of orange lava flowing inside the crater. The fumes are very strong, so not recommended for people with breathing difficulty.
