530 am wake up to start our day. Silvio Julio and Andri were to be our tour guides for the morning excursion, volcano boarding! They asked us if we wanted to drive over there in a 4X4 or a pickup truck... 4X4!!! If we knew how dusty and how much crap would be flying up in the air maybe we would have made a different decision but it worked out for the best in the end. We got to Cerro Negra in about 45 minutes and started our hike. It took about 45 minutes to hike up but had some crazy good views and got to see some steam spewing from the inside of the lava. Andri offered us the easy route or the tough route in the wind. Tough route, well worth it. When we got to the top we saw a swarm of migratory bees just chilling out and made lava ash angels. We then boarded down, Matt's snowboarding skills proved worthwhile to him. After a few seconds he was gone with me trailing a little and Dave and Grant taking the opportunity to get more pictures. When Matt and I got down they let us take the 4X4 around the bottom of the volcano ash which was a nice added bonus. We all ended up taking turns and buying a few rounds of beer at the welcome center of the volcano. We drove back to Leon with another round of beers and went straight to lunch with our three guides. Good large portioned food that cost 21 dollars for the 7 of us. After heading back and trying to wash the layer of volcano ash off our skin, we had a couple of more mojitos (complimentary with the morning tour) we headed out to San Juan Del Sur.
