Masaya Volcano and Handicraft Market Day Trip from Managua

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Following pickup at your Managua hotel, get to know your guide during the ride out of town in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. 

    The tour's first stop is Mayasa Volcano, the only volcano in the Western Hemisphere where visitors can drive right up to the edge of the crater. Visit the Ecological Museum located near the edge of the crater to learn about the history and folklore surrounding its activity and eruptions. Enjoy the rare experience of standing at the edge of the crater and peering down into the active volcano.

    Climb back on board your vehicle and travel to the small nearby town of Mayasa. Its large handicraft market, which takes up an entire city block, is popular with locals and visitors alike and is full of folkloric arts and crafts. Peruse displays of pottery, baskets, folkloric paintings and traditional woven hammocks by local artists and craftspeople. Ceramics and sculpted traditional masks are also popular souvenirs for visitors. 

    After your 5-hour exploration of the artistic, geological and folkloric exploration of Mayasa, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel in Managua.
