  • Slide down the black lava of the Cerro Negro on the outskirts of Leon
  • Experience the thrill of volcano boarding - like snowboarding but on a volcano!

Full description
Test your sense of adventure and feel the adrenaline thrill of boarding down the Cerro Negro just outside of Leon. Think of it as like snowboarding - or sand boarding - except on the black lava of an imposing volcano. Designated a protected area, Cerro Negro provides the breathtaking location for this action packed tour, starting with an early morning transfer by 4WD truck. After an approximate 40-minute drive, you will be at the base of Cerro Negro wondering how on earth you will reach the top. Once at the top, you will wonder how on earth you will ever get back down again! Before you do, take some time to observe the majestic volcano and surrounding forest. Then, fully kitted out in your jumpsuit, goggles and board, climb aboard the sled like volcano board and slide back down to base at blood-rushing speeds! Some refreshments will be waiting at the foot of Cerro Negro as your reward, and after a short rest, the truck will take you back to Leon.

Company is a fraud. They never showed up for my friend and I. We waited for over 2 hours Plus. I called them even through WhatsApp and they never answered. The pick up location BigFoot Hostel has never even heard of this company and offered to take us on this same tour for a fraction of the cost we spent and lost on this booking. Never again. I’m telling everyone I know not to book this excursion. It’s not worth the time, hassle and lost if money. We had to pay for taxi there and back. What a horrible Way to begin a vacation. Even the owner of hostel called several times and didn’t receive an answer.
