Volcan cerro negro, Leon

4.6
Trek up Central America's youngest volcano, Volcan cerro negro. Born in 1850, the volcano has erupted frequently over the decades since it first appeared, but tour groups run hikes up towards the crater during times of inactivity. The basalt cinder cone looks entirely at odds with the surrounding lush hillsides, giving the opportunity for dramatic photography. Make sure you bring lots of water on your hike up the volcano: it's hot, dry, and windy the farther you go on the 45-minute hike. The way down remains much simpler, whether you wish to walk or sled down the volcano.

  • We hire directly in volcanic day to lower the volcano with sled, your price is $ 30 per person and they give you a shirt and at the end they give you a banana and invite you to a beer, we we were going with our car pay half our car was 4 x 4 with a normal car best them, rise you experience is very good, the views, the descent... The excursion is not heavy and give you the option to get the sled by 5dolares.
