What you can expect

Take a close look at the natural beauty of Nicaragua on this private tour to the Masaya Volcano and Catarina viewpoint. Get personal with an active, smoking volcano crater, and soak in panoramic views of the Apoyo Lagoon, all while learning about the country's wildlife and heritage.

Meet your guide outside your hotel or cruise port, then drive out to Masaya Volcano National Park. Nicaragua's first and largest national park, the area features a nested set of calderas and craters. Your guide takes you cruising right up to the summit of an active crater, which belches a continuous stream of smoke and sulfuric gas into the air. Take advantage of this rare, personal encounter with an active volcano by snapping photos, then continue on with your tour.

Stop at a local handicraft market in Masaya, where you can browse stalls of beautiful Nicaraguan arts. After learning about the traditional crafts, drive on to Catarina, a charming town where ornamental plants and flowers are grown. Make your way to a viewpoint that overlooks the entirely of the gorgeous Apoyo Lagoon. Take in the spectacular, panoramic vista of the lagoon, Lake Nicaragua behind it, and the majestic Mombacho volcano that borders the lake. After capturing unforgettable photos of the sight, return to San Juan del Sur with convenient transportation.
