Volcan Masaya

The Masaya Volcano is an active volcano a few kilometers down the highway from Masaya. It is visible from most places in Masaya. It continually bellows sulfurous smoke and has lava with a visible red glow during the night.

The volcano was thought to be a gateway to hell so a cross was erected on the highest point

A view into the crater, the smoke never stops and smells really bad
