The Masaya volcano is the only volcano in the western hemisphere where you are able to drive to the rim. Visitors can peek over the edge at the Masaya Volcano, and look into the impressive crater, which is continuously emitting smoke and sulfur gases.
The sulfur gas is very irritating and one can only stay a short while. You will notice that all vehicles in the parking lot face the exit. This is a requirement and is designed to facilitate a fast escape, if necessary.
