- Try your hand at sand-boarding.
We will pick you up from any hotel in Managua or Granada at 7:00 a.m. to drive you to Leon rural area. We will have a couple of stops before reaching the volcano Cerro Negro base to begin our hiking tour.
One stop will be at the view point where you will have the opportunity to take picture of Lake Managua and the active volcano of Momotombo. Second stop in the town of Nagarote where you will be able to see the process of Quesillo making which is a traditional snack of the Nicaraguan people. This is corn tortillas with string cheese and pickles onions with sour cream.
Next, we will stop at the base of the volcano to use the station facilities and get ready for the big adventure. Many people choose to rent all the equipment for sand-boarding which is very unique to this young volcano. Our hike up will take one hour and to hike down it only take less than 10 minutes in the soft lose volcanic sand.
