  Hammock makers in Masaya
by hanula

Masaya is located 1,5 hours drive down from Managua. Masaya is famous for its hammocks that you can buy directly from producers. There is also quite a touristy market place that sells products from all over Nicaragua in Masaya. I did not like it too much even though some people think it is lovely.
NATIONAL PARK VOLCAN MASAYA (active crater) is within easy reach (by car) from the town. It is nice to visit but many people who have visited other volcanoes did not find it too exciting. If I had little time to spare in Nicaragua I would much rather go to Ometepe or León Viejo/Leon, for example.
