A lovely town halfway between Managua and Granada where we strolled over
the traditional market. Here we couldn't resist buying things such as
cigars, hammocks and CD's - so, everything you need on a travel...
However, the highlight was visiting the Parque Nacional Volcan Masaya.
For the very first time we had the opportunity to look into a crater of
a still smoking volcano. Impressive 500m diameter and 180m depth combined
with the penetrating smell of sulphur of the rising steam are undoubtedly
an unforgettable memory!
Afterwards, we visited a native family living right next to the national
park. They make a living with breeding und selling of iguanas, turtles
Further on the way to Granada we stopped at the Laguna de Apoyo - a beautiful
blue crater lake in an extinct volcano.
