It is quite an experience to see an active volcano where you can get so close to the edge that you can see lava bubbling up underneath and fumes coming out. We were very impressed and it's well worth the detour! The views of the...More

Super view of Managua and the Managua Lake from the top of the mountain. You'll see the lava formations on your way to the top of the mountain, then you get to see the mouth of the volcano in a plateau. As you get close...More

We took the tour from Granada. There are many companies offering this trip. It cost us $25 U.S. per person but was so worth it. It took nearly an hour to get there. We visited the museum for a few minutes and then went to...More

Looking down into the cauldron & seeing red hot lava at the bottom is fascinating, however many of the videos & photos one sees are exaggerated due to zooming in. Clouds of acidic gas also tend to greatly reduce visibility. It should also be noted...More

Because liquid hot magma. You can actually see it in there. It’s incredible. Driving up you can see the lava deposits from the last major explosion in 1772 (that’s what I remember from our guide).

While you can only spend about 15 minutes at the crater due to the gases, it is worth visiting just to see the lava. Also, the setting sun is beautiful through the gases.

We have been here several times, most at night because that was what was recommended, however the last time we went was during the day. I preferred during the day because you can still see the lava but you also get to see everything else...More

The proximity of viewing to lava is much closer than at Kilauea, for example. The lava is probably 100 yards away horizontally and then several hundred feet down. We took the advice of this message board and went to see it at night. It was...More

I'm not sure I'd call it a "Tour". As noted above, large parking lot. Tour buses have a 20 minute maximum time limit. Parking seems to be less restricted. I do not know if a private tour company (smaller vehicle) would... More

I'm sorry that I don't know the daytime hours, but view is fantastic in the early evening view if you can arrange to be there at that time!
