Cerro Negro Volcano Boarding, Old León and Lagoon Asososca – 1 day

Feel the adrenaline while sliding down the youngest and most active volcano in Nicaragua, enjoy a swim in a wonderful crater lagoon and learn all about the sleeping ruins of Spain’s first settlement in Nicaragua.

Our trip begins short before 8am at SONATI. After a one-hour drive through Nicaragua’s countryside we arrive at the ranger station and start our 30 to 40 minutes easy hike up the rocky path to the crater of the volcano at 726m. Enjoy the amazing view, take a deep breath, experience the volcanic heat at the summit and learn about the mechanics of a volcano and the history of Cerro Negro.

The fun part begins now: the volcano boarding. After some instructions and putting on the necessary equipment, you are good to go. Decide between speeding down the slopes or taking a relaxed drive. No matter how, you will have tons of fun and a beautiful view of the landscape!

At the bottom we finish with a cool drink before we travel further.

Next stop: Asososca lagoon, an old volcano crater where you can relax, swim in the refreshing water and have lunch. We rest for about one and a half hours until we take our tour to the final level.

At about 2.30pm we start our tour in the Old León City and learn all about the hidden city, the beginnings of León and the life with the volcanoes. We are back at SONATI around 6pm.
