How long is the drive from San Juan Del Sur to Masaya ?

We're staying in SJDS and want to take a day trip to Masaya to see the volcano and the market. How long is the drive each way? Thanks!

The drive will be about and hour and fiifteen minutes or and a half per way but the trip is worth it, you got to see Masaya Volcano, Masaya arts and crafts market, Catarina and San Juan de Oriente, most companies will offer this same tour, www.nicaraguaescapade.weebly.com these people will offer good rates and specially good service.

We were staying in SJDS last week ,and while there drove to Granada and stayed for 2 nights at the Terrasol.. great people, Victor and Katya, great food, and very reasonable accommodations. From there we drove to Catarina for the lookout, shopped in San Juan del Oriente, ate at Tip Top Chicken on the highway, visited the welcome centre at Volcan Masaya, peered through the gases into the crater, returned to the market at Masaya at the end of the day and returned to the hotel to enjoy Victor`s chicken in rum, mango and chile sauce!!! A full day only disrupted by being pulled over by the police at a roadblock for committing an " infractione"?!?! They couldn`t speak English ,and we couldn`t speak Spanish ( ha!) and played totally dumb and wore them down and they let us go, telling us to be careful!!! Good luck!
