The Volcano Masaya National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Pacific, allowing us to get up close and personal with the crater and its environment, as well as the local flora and fauna. During the night, It presents a show that delights the crater’s nighttime visitors: the enjoyment of the so-called “incandescent lava lake” as seen from the crater’s very edge.

    The nighttime visit to the volcano begins as the darkness falls. The fantastic start here: the sky darkening or completely darkening allows you to see the thousands of stars, and the wind blows through the area. The sound of a rumour is similar to that of the water. And on the crater’s rim, at the bottom, a spectacular lake of lava moves with its incandescent colour. The visit lasts 10 to 20 minutes, after which the guides and park rangers ask visitors to leave the area and park due to gas emissions and the fact that it is an active volcano.

    The Masaya Volcano National Park covers 54 square kilometres and is home to two volcanoes and five craters. Volcanoes have erupted numerous times, scaring both inhabitants and conquerors of Spain. The active volcano was given the name “La Boca del Infierno” by the Spaniards. To exorcise the devil, they built “La Cruz de Bobadilla” (by Father Francisco Bobadilla) near the crater’s mouth in the 16th century.

    The eruptions have had a significant influence on the area. The surrounding area is still covered in volcanic rocks. The environment is a little harsh, with various sorts of plants emerging due to the eruptions. The Park is home to a diverse range of animals. Coyotes, skunks, raccoons, opossums, iguanas, deer, and monkeys are among the park’s species.

    Many additional pathways go to nearby craters and the cave of Tzinaconostoc, where hundreds of bat nests can be found. Our Guides guide visitors through roads ranging in length from 1.4 to 5.9 kilometres.

    It comprises transportation from the park’s San Juan del Sur entrances, and returns are provided.
