On my Day trip to Leon I had sandboarding included. The hike up Cerro negro took about an hour. There are parts that are more difficult to climb - so be in good shape for this activity. The view from the top of the volcano was absolutely stunning. I took it quite slow on the sled like divide i had to slide down the hill. Enjoyed it though. Ensure to put on a lot of sunscreen - my neck and forehead got burned a little. My tourguide carried my board for me A I am glad he did - usually you can hire someone to do that for you for around $5. Fun trip - I recommend

We ventured up this volcano as part of a Volcano boarding tour with Volcano Day. To get there you need to take a bumpy dirt road for a couple of km, so not advisable if you are planning to get there on your own with a hire car. It is a moderate hike up to the crater rim that takes around 45min with a couple of breaks along the way. The views over the valley and along the line over other Nicaraguan volcanoes is quite spectacular. The side that you board down is steep however it isn't as scary as it looks and you have control of the speed that you go. Boarding is the best way to experience this particular volcano.

Book the volcano boarding with Quetzaltrekkers - firstly, they donate most of your money to their scholarship scheme for nicaraguan kids, for the same price as other tour companies ($30 inc park entry). secondly, you go an hour earlier than all other tour groups so we didn’t have to wait for others to go down, we were the only ones up there the first time. It’s also a lot cooler. i dont know how big their groups can get, but there were only 5 of us which was perfect. They also offer for you to do it a second time, which is worth the extra hike up!

So fun! Not too hot (we were worried about heat) because it was windy and elevated. We liked our guide and felt safe the whole time. The hike wasn’t too long and the sliding was very fun. Prepare to get ASHY!

Very interesting landscape. I went with a volcano boarding group which I think loses all the beauty the volcano has : it destroys the frozen lava and creates paths. People from these trips can be nasty and leave trash in the volcano, or smoke cigs in dry areas , without the guides saying anything. That pissed me off because I think it really contributes to the destrection of the untouched beauty.
