Afternoon Volcano Tour & Departure

Managua may not be the prettiest of cities, but it’s worth stopping a while to take in the impressive site of Masaya Volcano. In the afternoon you’ll be collected from your hotel and, with a small group of other travellers, taken to the Masaya Volcano National Park where this volcano tour will begin. You’ll hopefully see the green “Chocoyos” (Parakeets) returning to their nests in the crater and huge amounts of bats leaving their caves.

The exact tour depends on the level of volcanic activity, so your guide will talk it all through with you at the start. You’ll then return to the city where you’ll spend the night in a small, centrally located hotel with a swimming pool. Managua airport is only around 30mins from your hotel, but during heavy traffic it might take you about an hour. Either way, we’ll make sure you get there in plenty of time to catch your international flight home.

"Nicaragua was always my favourite place to pass through during my time spent in Central America. It's full of surprises, from its coffee-rich plantations and volcanic islands, to its colonial cobbles streets & coral reefs."
