Description

The Masaya Volcano National Park comprises of an area of 54 km2 and includes two volcanoes and fiver craters. The volcanoes have erupted several times in history, and were feared by both the indigenous people and the Spanish conquerors. The Spanish baptized the active volcano “La Boca del Infierno” or “The mouth of Hell”. They planted a cross, “La Cruz de Bobadilla” (named after Father Francisco Bobadilla), on the crater lip in the 16th century in order to exorcise the Devil.

You will be picked up and driven to the Nindirí municipality where the Masaya Volcano is located. Once you arrive, please advise your guide/driver if you would like to stop and visit the museum to lean more about the history of the Volcano. From there you can walk up to the rim of the volcano where you will be able to see the active lava boiling and bubbling below with plums of smoke rising into the sky. After the hike, you will be taken to a local restaurant for a traditional Nicaraguan lunch where you can try a delicious quesillo, or feast on a fritanga.
