"People", meaning tourists, go to Masaya supposedly because of the market. Yes, the market for the tourists is not for you. It has some resemblance of structured market place even a wall has been put up on one of the sides for the sake of beautifying it rather than to protect it. The prices are inflated for the corresponding service. The taxi driver is going to suggest the other one so you go to the market for the locals. Except you are not a local. It is the same as far as the prices are concerned just with worse fare and less oxygen. The filth on the way between the two is instructive for people who come from another environment which might as well be another planet. The heaps of garbage are humongous and seem to be enjoyed by their authors. The only thing to surpass the repulsive feeling about Masaya is to see it in the rainy season, I guess.
Fun Alternatives: Go to the airconditioned splendour of Granada mall served by two local mermaids and buy T-shirt for the same price as in Masaya market. Cheers!
