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.

One of the most spectacular views you can get in Nicaragua. I highly recommend taking a sledding tour of the mountain. The views at the top are worth it and then the adrenaline rush sliding down the volcano is just the icing on the cake.
