Cerro Negro Hiking and Sand Boarding from León

    What to Expect
    Begin your adventure with pickup at your hotel in León, or by meeting your guide and group at a designated spot in the city. Be sure to bring sun protection (hat, sunscreen, sunglasses), snacks, and plenty of water. Board a tour vehicle for transfer to the Cerro Negro volcano, which is the youngest volcano in Central America. Cerro Negro was formed in 1850 and it erupted last in 1999. 

    Once you reach the foot of the volcano, start the hike up to the top. You'll be carrying your own board, and the ascent is challenging due to the heat and the terrain. This activity is best suited for those in good physical condition. Make stops to rest and hear some information about the volcano from your guide. 

    At the top, catch your breath while you listen to a safety briefing and a talk about the technical aspects of sandboarding. Make your way over to the steeper outer rim of the volcano, where you can practice with a test run down into the crater. 

    Once you're ready, strap on your board for the descent down the volcano's sandy slope. Your guide will be on hand the whole time to ensure your safety and comfort.

    Your tour ends with transportation back to León.
