1. Volcano Boarding
Where else can you experience the thrill of sliding down a volcano on your very own sled? So you have to hike to the top on your own steam, but that just adds to the adventure. Cerro Negro is an active black volcano located just outside the town of Leon. It offers brave visitors the chance of a lifetime to slide down its steep and slippery slope. You have to climb the 2388 ft cone with your sled strapped to your back until you reach “the drop zone”, but it makes an exhilarating ride down. Not for the faint of heart or easily injured. This sport can shake you up, dump you off the sled and get your heart racing. One thing’s for sure, you will never forget this experience.
