Beautiful place and view from the top. But the main reason why you should go there is to try volcano boarding (ask Bigfoot Hostel in Leon), this is a one life experience!

Volcano Boarding on Cerro Negro is an unreal experience that you will never forget!!

We went with Bigfoot Hostel, who offer a pretty good deal. $23 for transportation, a quick tour of the crater with some fun facts, a lesson of boarding, and then the boarding itself. When you finish, you get a beer and a cookie, and 2 mojitos when you return to the hostel.

You leave at 1pm and enjoy the ride out to the volcano. The walk up is about 45 minutes, and a bit tough...mostly because of the crazy wind. Be careful not to get blown off!

The board down is scary and exhilirating. They give you a big orange jumpsuit to wear, so even if you fall (which I did), you only suffer from a few minor scratches.

A MUST DO!! Worth every penny.
