The Nicaraguan lake is 160 kilometers long, with an average width of 60 kilometers and an area of 8264 square kilometers. Tens of thousands of years ago, Lake Nicaragua was a Bay of the Pacific Ocean, which was isolated from the sea due to volcanic eruptions. The lake water gradually desalinated with the passage of the sun and moon and became a freshwater lake. The sea fish living in the lake also adapted to the desalination of water and survived. At present, there are still thousands of sharks, swordfish, silver carp, and other marine fish in the lake.|

Masaya Volcano is the symbol of Nicaragua. It is more than 400 meters high and consists of the “Santiago” active crater and six dead craters near it, such as ningdili. From the gate of the park, you can meander 7 kilometers along the winding mountain road built of volcanic rocks to reach the “Santiago” crater with thick smoke. Because volcanic ash blocks the sun, even in the daytime, there is a gloomy feeling here, and even a mysterious color, which is creepy, so some people compare it to “the gate of hell”.
“San Diego” volcano goes out every 20 years, and then it soon reactivates and spits out thick smoke. It is the only active volcano on the American continent that can see boiling lava. The golden lava crackles and rolls, sometimes falling from 60 meters high, constantly emitting gas, and the temperature is as high as 1050 degrees Celsius.
