Granada: Visit Masaya volcano and market

Visit Masaya volcano and market

Peer down from the crater rim of Masaya volcano, where the land falls away along a sheer vertical ridge and fumes belch up from the cauldron of volcanic activity bubbling away below.

From here it's a scenic drive alongside the lagoon of the same name, before eventually arriving at an artisan market where indigenous vendors in traditional costume sell local ceramics, hammocks, wooden ornaments and leather souvenirs.
