Witness the spectacular sunset as the sun descends below the peak of the volcano then head to the edge of the crater and peer inside to witness the inner glow of the lava.  On the return journey, stop along the way at the Visitor Center to learn more about the history of the volcano and culture of the local people before getting dropped off back at your hotel.

Tour guide approached me by phone same day of the tour to confirm pick timing which was great! Tour took longer than one hour ; you will visit a small museum about the volcano then by car you will be taken to the volcano site which was amazing with the active lava!! Totally recommend this tour when you’re in Managua

The driver simply didn't show up on the agreed date on the agreed time. After Getyourguide had confirmed my tour to the volcano, I was supposed to wait for the guide in the lobby of my hotel at 16:20. After waiting for 40 minutes and contacting Getyourguide, I was told that the company who was supposed to take me to the volcano simply cancelled, without saying anything and that they wouldn't provide the tour - horrendous and never again with Getyourguide!
