In contrast to touristy, but beautiful Granada, Masaya is a lot more rustic and authentic. The cultural and folklore capital is famous for its passion for music, dance, and traditional crafts. Masaya and its surroundings offer plenty of things to do. You can see glimmering lava at Volcano de Masaya, dip in a volcanic crater lake at Laguna Apoyo or learn about Nica’s people. Traditionally Masya and its inhabitants are very involved in politics and eager to share their point of views!
