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 went with the Agency Tierra towers from Leon, loved it. The super guide, material in good condition, fresh fruit on arrival, a small piece of pizza, beer and t-shirt offered for $ 30. The view from the Summit is exceptional with the Green-Black contrast. Board is easy and finally the speed is not so impressive envisioned priori. In short, a must in the region!
