I Saw Lava in Nicaragua! - Masaya Volcano, "The Mouth of Hell"

You'll have to excuse the shitty photo quality, but holy moly I SAW LAVA. It was absolutely crazy!

Masaya Volcano Lava

Okay, so here's the story. I had just finished the boat tour of Las Isletas in Granada as mentioned in this post, and the nice couple that I had met on the tour and I were all a little tipsy what with all the rum and such. We somehow were convinced that it would be an awesome idea to book an illegal tour to view Masaya Volcano at night (which was technically closed to due high volcanic activity that had been occurring for months). And guess what. It was. IT WAS SO AWESOME.

We were so incredibly close. You could see and hear the physical lava crashing into the rock like ocean waves. If I closed my eyes I could hear the sea, but at the same time, I could feel the heat radiating from the mouth of hell I was standing over.

And here's a photo of me looking high as a kite with the lava ✌︎
