This was all around an awesome experience amid what is going on in Nicaragua. Definitely a highlight. Unfortunately with the situation in Nica, we were only two on the day we went but that wasn't a let down. We got to be first and last...More

I took the volcano boarding tour but was not staying there. The tour guides, hostel staff, group, and boarding was a blast! You have to be able to hike so I recommend spending the extra $5 to pay a local to carry your board. They...More

This was the deal man. Boarding, booze, a t-shirt, transport, and a beach day afterwards? Count me in. Santa was an awesome tour guide and really made things interesting. Rasta was great too.

Thrilling time Volcano boarding then then beach for a second wild time. Carolina was the coolest, radest, most dope guide you can get. Nothing can go wrong with volcanos and high speed sledding on rocks when you’ve got good people around

It was not the cheapest volcano tour of Leon but it was very fun, I loved the fact that our guide Santa gave us information during the tour, for example how volcano boarding was born there. :) A memorable day! Thanks!

Stayed in an "air conditioned" double room as a treat ($35US per night, an expense on a backpacker budget). Discovered after checking in that the air conditioner only runs from 7pm to 7am, something that should have been disclosed by staff. The room was located...More

I really commend the folks at Bigfoot because they do a terrific job setting the expectations, and getting you up and down the volcano safely, informed and photographed (let's all face it we want to have photographic evidence of such an experience!). It's hard hiking...More

You can try their facebook page - the hostel is really active on their FB account. I believe the trips run each day, they leave at around 9am from the hostel which is right in Leon in Backpacker alley, about 3 blocks from... More
