Photographer's Note

This is Santiago Crater, the active crater of Masaya Volcano.
In 1979, around this volcano, was established the Masaya Volcano National Park, the first national park of Nicaragua.
The Masaya Volcano is the most active volcano of the region and is continuously emitting large amounts of gas.
At the time of the Conquistadores, the volcano used to feature a lava lake they thought to be molted gold, and it was nicknamed "the mouth of hell".
