As hard as it is to suit up in full protective gear when it’s already 100 degrees and humid out, it’s well worth it for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to go volcano boarding down Cerro Negro.
Being the youngest and most active volcano in Central America, volcano boarding Cerro Negro isn’t exactly the safest thing to do – but it might be one of the coolest! With its last eruption, albeit a small one, coming in 1999, rumor has it that’s it’s long overdue for a full-blown lava-flowing tantrum-throwing breakdown. 🌋
Bigfoot Hostel and Volcano Boarding is one of the only tour companies that clocks your speed so that you figure out how fast you went – they even tally in on a scoreboard for the whole hostel to judge, so don’t puss out.
Quetzaltrekkers León is the only not-for-profit trekking company in León and not only do they donate their money back to the community, but they’re also the only company that allows you to go down twice! ✌️
