Crater's Edge - Hotel Masaya and Los Pueblos - Nicaragua

Once a private residence (like most buildings along the lakefront), Hospedaje Crater’s Edge is hushed and lovely, with wide tiled porches overlooking the lake – although rather strict with the guest dos and don’ts. Outside food and drink is not permitted, which means either a trip up the street to one of the local restaurants or the hotel’s plate-of-the-day for C$80. Crater’s Edge is socially conscious: the owner maintains a strip of beach, employs a blind masseuse from Seeing Hands ($8 for 30 minutes, $15 per hour) and sells a range of items whose proceeds go to local projects. The hotel has six private rooms ($22 to $44) and a 12-bed, screened dorm ($15 per person with breakfast included; towels are $1 extra) that was originally a boathouse. The $7 visitor’s day pass includes access to a ranchero-style patio with hammocks and lounge chairs, as well as use of the kayaks, inner tubes and floating dock. The hotel has internet access, including WiFi on the upper porch. Crater’s Edge also has a shuttle service to Oasis Hostel in Granada ($4 round trip) that leaves at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Reservations at Crater’s Edge are recommended.
