Medium content


You won’t have to compromise your passions for history and adventure with this tour! You will begin with a historic tour of the Coyotepe Fortress, built in 1893. From the fortress’s towers, soak in a wonderful panoramic view of the Pacific of Nicaragua and a volcanic line. Afterwards, you will enter two underground tunnels used as a prison for politicians in 1936. When exiting the tunnels, you will enjoy a picture-perfect sunset before heading to Masaya Volcano National Park.

The park includes two volcanoes and five craters. The Masaya Volcano has erupted on several occasions and formerly frightened Spanish natives and conquerors. Thus, this active volcano was named "The Mouth of Hell". Today, it is still extremely well known and famous for being the only volcano in the western hemisphere that its crater you can reach by car!


  • Begin your day with a tour of the Coyotepe Fortress and enjoy a panoramic view from one of its towers.
  • Explore some mysterious, historic underground tunnels, previously used as a prison in the early 1900s.
  • Head over to the Masaya Volcano National Park to experience the popular Masaya Volcano and have a closeup view of this active volcano.

Born and raised in Granada, I spent the first 14 years of my life in these paradisiac islands. Afterwards, I moved to the city to finish my studies, and I have been a tour guide since I was 19. This has now been both my profession and passion for over nine years! The best thing about my work is the opportunity to interact with, discover, and learn from the culture, history, and wonderful places of my country. I just love sharing my knowledge with travelers, and I want to share my love for Nicaragua with the world through my unique, personalized tours, my experience, and my personality.
