Nicaragua - Masaya & Los Pueblos Blancos (Chapter)
This is the Masaya & Los Pueblos Blancos chapter from Lonely Planet's Nicaragua guidebook.
Nicaragua’s meseta central (central plateau) offers a picturesque patchwork of lagoons, steamy volcanic peaks and sleepy colonial villages. Not many people stay here for more than a short day-trip, leaving plenty of room for exploration and encounters with the region’s remarkable natural, cultural and artistic imprint.
