The trip was really nice. The hike...
Pascaline L, Nov 2016
The trip was really nice. The hike is short and quite easy. The view from the top is beautiful and is worth the trip by itself. For those who are scared of the way down, don't be ! It's really easy to manage your speed depending on how you sit up or lay down on the board. The descent is fun and easy. Our guide was very nice and smily and he answered well to all our questions. He always made sure we were ok on the way up, pausing regularly to let us have a sip of water or take pictures. I highly recommend this activity and will certainly do it again if I come back to Nicaragua.
This adventure was incredible. There...
Rudy R, Jul 2016
This adventure was incredible. There is no experience like this in the world that is for sure. You start by hiking up the volcano with your sled and gear. This is the toughest part and in that hot central American heat is NOT for the faint of heart. Once you make it to the top though. WOW. The views and amazing. You can feel the volcano heat just a little and if you dig the ground up a little the dirt is hot. Then you ride down after a brief tutorial and gearing up. The ride is about a minute and you can completely control the speed with your feet. It's take a second to manage but once you get going you are set. Thrill seekers can lift your feet for the fast ride.
Fun and unique experience
Stacy R, Dec 2019
We loved our experience and had a great time! Just the drive out to the volcano was well worth the money. Make sure you bring something to cover your head that will stay on even when it's windy. I didn't and was picking pieces of rock out of my hair for days afterwards even after taking a shower. I'd also suggest bringing a face mask to keep the rocks out of your mouth. Also, be prepared for a long walk up the volcano.
So much fun

1 hour of hiking for 60 seconds of fun.... and well worth it. Really enjoyed learning about this baby volcano as we hiked up. The guide was personable, fun, and well educated. Great experience, highly recommended!

Excellent guide, once in a lifetime experience, awesome! The views are stunning and the ride down is so much fun. The hike up is a little tough for the those lacking in strength.
