  • Took a guided night tour of Masaya, and the museum--and English-speaking--guide was included. It was pretty cool, actually, and our guide was hilarious, but also informative. (He also seemed to make s...  more »
  • In this museum on the park, you need to register yourself and you can see the history at the volcano. Not really exciting. We used this location for the toilet

  • Impressive to see a volcano in activity so closely. I loved it; I notice that the visit is short, because the flow of tourists is big, and the maximum to appreciate the volcanic activity is 15 minutes; so carry ready your camera beforehand to take pictures that can!

  • This is a can't miss stop. They have a small Museum filled with really interesting things. Lots of pictures of time gone by. but most interesting of course, is the volcano. And you can literally go look right down into the mouth of hell. At night time, you can clearly see the lava right below you. This is a spectacular destination.
  • Very cool volcano to visit! We could not stay long as it was active but it was worth the time we got to go. The park fees are minimal and the ride is short up the mountain but the views are amazing once at the top. The opening is so massive it makes you take in the scale and realize the power that lies beneath.
  • Very nice national park. All the roadways are paved and safe to drive. Went to see the volcano which was an incredible experience. I highly recommend checking it out either on your own or as part of a tour.
  • Impressive visit at nightfall. You see the lava in fusion pretty clearly. Too bad you can only stay 15 minutes. Make sure to arrive and start lining up early, by 4:30 pm. Otherwise you might wait a while before seeing the crater.
  • It is so amazing place to see magma inside of earth. There is two place in the world to see magma. There is a museum in the road of volcano. You can enjoy two scenery in volcano. During the day time, you can enjoy the scenery of city and around of volcano. Especially around 5 pm you can take a picture around of volcano. The background is so fantastic. And at 7pm you can enjoy of the scenery for magma of volcano. It is marvelous and fantastic. And also you can hear about the sound like heart from the movement of magma.
