We visited the Masaya Volcano National Park as part of a tour group & I wasn't sure what to expect. While you can only stay for 15-20 minutes, that is really all you need to see everything. We went during the day, but from what...More

We did the night tour. After waiting almost 2 hours and paying $10 a person, it was definitely worth it. The volcanic activity is amazing and a bit scary. Took some great pictures.

Chose the night tour, and were not disappointed. Not a 'budget' traveler stop, but the place is so unique and spectacular at night, that is worth every penny. The volcano is well 'alive', molten lava and fire is just a few meters down the crater's...More
