Create an itinerary including Cerro Negro Volcano
Trek up Central America's youngest volcano, Cerro Negro Volcano. Born in 1850, the volcano has erupted frequently over the decades since it first appeared, but tour groups run hikes up towards the crater during times of inactivity. The basalt cinder cone looks entirely at odds with the surrounding lush hillsides, giving the opportunity for dramatic photography. Make sure you bring lots of water on your hike up the volcano: it's hot, dry, and windy the farther you go on the 45-minute hike. The way down remains much simpler, whether you wish to walk or sled down the volcano. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Cerro Negro Volcano and many more Leon attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Leon trip planner.

  • Very exciting, nice and talkative guide, and beautiful view! The hike was not to long, a bit steap, and the view was so worth it all.

  • It is very difficult to get there but it is a nice experience and you feel like you are in another planet.
  • Ohhhhh wow, you really need to visit this amazing active volcano, the youngest in Central America and America continent, it's the only volcano in the world where you can do sand boarding, some people named it "Volcano boarding", enjoy this unequal experience, appreciate the panorama of part of the Maribios volcanic range.
