Outstanding tour. Frank, our tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and polite and could answer any question you had. spoke very clear English and Spanish. The tour itself was very fun. The hike up was relatively easy, and there were great views all the way up so bring your camera. The ride down was OUTSTANDING! These boards allow you to go as fast or slow as you like so it is fun for people who like to play it safe, as well as the true thrill seekers of the world. If you are visiting Nicaragua DON'T MISS THIS TOUR!
We had a great time. Thank you to Roy for driving and to Alex for being a great tour guide.
The tour is definitely worth doing. Be prepared for a strenuous hike for those that don't do it on a normal basis. It took about 45 mins to get to the top. And out guide was helpful each step of the way. Even ensured we got some awesome pictures along the way. It rained the day before our tour, which proved to make a less than desirable ride down. The sand has washed away from the rain, so it was mostly rocks. We would only go about 10 yards before the rocks would over take the board and bring you to a halt. Took us almost 10 mins to get down, and it was very frustrating. Cause there's no climbing back to the top to do it again. It's one and done. But I place fault only on mother nature and not the tour or the guide. Hopefully you will be able to plan around the rain, or just go during their dry season. But I would recommend everyone do it.
Wow, what an experience! Rugged natural beauty, an excellent, informed, fun guide, and a sled ride down a volcano! Do not miss this!
The tour guide was awesome and it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a steep climb though so be prepared.
The hike up the volcano was much more difficult than I expected but boarding down was definitely a unique experience.
Every needs to experience the amazing site and thrill
Volcano boarding was a "must" on my Nicaragua itinerary and this excursion did not disappoint. I'm so glad the tour started so early in the morning because I would not have wanted to climb Cerro Negro in the afternoon heat. Our driver and guide were very friendly and knowledgeable. The climb took about an hour--it was definitely more challenging than I expected. The views along the way were incredible and the ride down was so much fun. Both my mom and myself will recommend this to anyone wanting to do something different, fun, and adventurous while on vacation!
