Your experience

Highlights

  • Get to know different handicrafts from the region on the market
  • Visit a wonderful viewpoint in the small town of Catarina
  • Visit Juan de Oriente, an old dreamy village known for its first class pottery.

Description

The city of Masaya is known as the "cradle of national folklore" due to its rich native heritage. It is also home to the best craft market in the country. In this very well-kept market you will find a wide range of local handicrafts: pottery, woodcarvings, leather goods, "primitivist" art, embroidery and much more. Near Masaya is the small town of Catarina, which is part of a series of towns known as "Pueblos Blancos" (White Town). Catarina is 520 meters above sea level and is known for its beautiful ornamental plants, which are planted by the many nurseries in the city. But Catarina's landmark is its "mirador", a viewpoint that offers spectacular views of the blue waters of the Apoyo Lagoon, Mombacho, Granada and Lake Nicaragua. If the weather permits, you can even have a look at the island of Ometepe

A few minutes by car from Catarina is another of the "Pueblos Blancos". San Juan de Oriente is an old dreamy colonial village known for its first class pottery. The cobblestone streets are lined with many shops selling local and contemporary pottery. You can visit the local potteries and watch the potters moulding and drying
