Masaya

Cradle of Nicaraguan Folklore

Quickly accessible from both Managua and Granada, culturally rich Masaya remains one of the best places to visit if you're looking to purchase authentic Nicaraguan handicrafts. Most tours of Masaya lead to the town's celebrated artisan market, where visitors stock up on one-of-a-kind souvenirs for themselves and gifts for everyone else back home. Many tourists synchronize their trip to Masaya with one of the area's colorful festivals, which provide an ideal opportunity to observe regional traditions and meet the locals in their natural environment. The nearby active volcano, now part of a national park, remains a big draw for travelers interested in exploring bat caves created by lava from past eruptions. Find out how to plan Nicaragua trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
