Rode for about an hour with a tour company with 6 other travelers and my gf. Hiked for about 45 minutes to the top of the mountain. Was able to dig our hands into the ash at the top of the mountain to see it...More

This was fantastic! I had booked a group trip and all communications prior to my visit were excellent. The trip itself is so worthwhile. It's a bumpy 1 hour ride from Leon to the volcano, but this affords you the opportunity to meet and get...More

Although I am quite afraid of heights and the climb was a huge challenge to overcome, it was worth it! The sand boarding down is an experience to be had! Michelle was our guide and very supportive, encouraging and made this experience even better!

NOTE 1: the hike is 1 mile/1.6 KM up a steep hill in the middle of the hot day. NOTE 2: you can pay a local young man $US 5 to carry your board, it's worth the expense! Absolutely thrilling and safe, just lean back...More

If you are a girly girl like me is worthy paying $5 for someone to carry the board for you, I didn't pay and my poor husband ended up carrying two boards
