I’m not sure what the huge price tag is about. It’s a volcano, it’s not as if it needs any maintenance?! BUT it is one of only a few places that you can experience this and it’s relatively easy to get to and as mentioned...More

We went during the night and and it was superb. During the day you can see the geological layers, which is fine, but you can hardly see the active volcano lava. Truly unique and worderful to see the force of nature!

Went here as part of a day tour from Costa Rica. Its very impressive being able to look into a volcano and see lava bubbling away below you. Definitely worth a visit.

Love standing at the edge of the volcano looking at sulfuric steams escaping upward to the sky. The drive up to the volcano is also quite nice. Highly recommended!

Where else in the world can you go up a volcano and stare down the crater and see lava? If you are travelling in Nicaragua, you must make a stop here and check this out yourself. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you see it),...More

We did this as part of the one Day Nicaragua tour. The park is very nice and well kept. We were also able to see the magma which was a huge plus. A big win for our 1st time at a volcano.

Stayed in Masaya for a couple nights and wanted to go to Volcano Masaya to see live lava. I hadn’t booked prior so I enquired at a few places on the day and prices for the evening tour were generally around $25pp. It is easier...More

Lost my photos and made a return trip. Enjoy every part of this tour. Got chased by a few bats on the museum tour. This place will be a everlasting memory!

You should be fine with your pack. You drive all they way up, short stop at the visitor center and then on to the top. Just bring water, and a good camera.

You need a car or to pay a taxi and have them stay with you. It’s way too far to walk although I suppose you could from the entrance to the museum. From the museum they take a certain number of people up to the volcano at... More
