Day 44, Central America trip, Dec 2012 – Feb 2013
Day 1, Masaya Volcano, Nicaragua
Mercado de Artesanias in Masaya, Nicaragua aka arts and crafts market held in a former fort.
If you are visiting Granada, Nicaragua and didn’t have the chance to find that perfect souvenir yet? A little more than half an hour drive away from Granada (45 minutes by chicken bus), the city of Masaya held one of the largest arts and crafts market in Nicaragua.
The active Masaya volcano and its natural park is also in the same city. This active volcano and natural park is only 10 km away from the center of town. Catch a chicken bus for 10 Cordobas to the park from the PanAmerica high way where if you tell the bus driver/conductor, they will drop you in front of the park’s entrance. Easy peasy.
