Masaya Highlights - Masaya Volcano & Artisan Market (Half Day)

Description

The Masaya Volcano
The Masaya Volcano is actually a volcanic complex composed of a nested set of calderas and craters. The massive outer Nindiri cone host the pit craters of Masaya, Santiago, Nindiri and San Pedro, and is considered as one of the most active volcanoes in Central America. You will see the smoking crater and if lucky, the extremely rare Green Parakeets (Chocoyo) which, strangely, call the volcano their home. The Masaya Volcano is the only volcano in the western hemisphere where you are able to drive to the rim.

The Masaya Market
After visiting the volcanic complex, you will visit the famous Masaya Market, the very heart of Nicaraguan handicrafts. Aside from unique Nicaraguan products such as hand woven hammocks, embroidered blouses, wood carvings, leather goods, ceramics, paintings and hemp weaving the market is very diverse. You will actually find the best of what Nicaragua's talented craftspeople have to offer. The Mercado de Artesanías (Craft Market) is located inside what used to be the ‘Mercado Viejo (old market), built in 1891, destroyed by fire twice and is now a safe and comfortable place to do your shopping. Even if you don't buy anything, the Masaya market is an enjoyable and colorful experience.
