Nicaragua - Masaya & Los Pueblos Blancos (Chapter)
This is the Masaya & Los Pueblos Blancos chapter from Lonely Planet's Nicaragua guidebook.
Home to artisans, revolutionaries, witches and faith healers, there's nowhere like Nicaragua's meseta central (central plateau). But be warned: its picturesque volcanic peaks aren't the only thing that'll test your stamina - its spirited regional fiestas will, too. Pack your vitamins!
- drive to the 'gates of hell', then take a full-moon hike up tempestuous Volcán Masaya
- shop till you drop at Nicaragua's most famous handicraft market, the Mercado Artesanías, in Masaya
Coverage includes: Masaya, Parque Nacional Volcán Masaya, Nindirí, Reserva Natural Laguna de Apoyo, Los Pueblos Blancos, Carazo.
