Today we did the private volcano boarding tour with our guide Franklin. We thought we could get a pickup straight from managua where we where staying because we could choose the pickup location in Managua. After booking we learned that that wasn't possible and had to get there with our own transportation or Franklin could arrange private travel. For us that was too expensive so we we went with the microbus from Managua to Leon. Franklin was extremely helpful and easy to reach and quick to reply on WhatsApp.

When we arrived in leon he picked us up in a modern vehicle and was very friendly. On the way to the volcano he told us a lot about the history of leon.

Arriving at the volcano we had a great tour with amazing panoramic views. Franklin knew exactly what he was doing and spoke excellent English. He made some great pictures and videos of us.

After that we went down the volcano! The gear was all in mint condition and he prepared us very good. He even runs down with you to get a great video of you.

After the boarding you grab some bites from some delicious fruits he brought and after that it's time to get back for your stop of in the city.

To summarize we had an excellent experience with Franklin and would definitely recommend his tours to anyone wanting a great time and a reliable guide that knows his deal!

My family (including two teens) were a bit wary after hearing I booked this as part of our tour of Nicaragua. They were quickly put at ease with meeting our guide Russell (through Va Pues Travel). He was incredibly informative and funny, taking his time to give us the history of the area around Cerro Negro. The hike up with breathtaking, but nowhere close to the exhilaration of heading down at crazy speeds (though you can control that yourself). It is a unique experience that you will take with you...in every orifice of your body, which you'll be digging out for days, but worth every little pebble!

We loved our private volcano boarding experience. MAX and Franklin were superb guides who took great care with us to ensure we had a good experience. We are seasoned hikers and not part of the hostel/backpacker party crowd. They picked us up at our hotel in Leon at the time we requested, provided safe comfortable transportation with good conversation, all the necessary equipment (board, coveralls, goggles and gloves). If you have a scarf,buff or bandana that is helpful to keep ash/debris off your face. The hike up was not challenging and most of the elevation gain was in the first half. We clocked 750 ft elevation in 38 minutes, traveling a little over a mile, with several stops for photos. Instruction was thorough, and when I struggled to get my board up to speed Max arrived with advice and a push start. Fresh watermelon and a selection of cold beverages were provided for the ride back to town. The total time including transport, hike up, leisurely stroll around the crater, boarding, and return was about 3.5 hours. For those concerned this was not scary, you had to really make an effort to go too fast or fall off.private tour for 2, $100 less if more people.

We had an amazing time, Cerro Negro is beautiful, the volcano and crater are amazing to view as you hike up. It was really windy the day we went which added a bit to the excitement / fear lol.

Our guides were super fun, knowledgeable of the area and gave us lots of cool info. We highly recommend the private tour, they pick you up directly at hotel and the schedule is a bit more flexible that way.

We won’t spoil the rest of the details on the descent, but it’s definitely a cool unique experience. Plan to get dusty! They supplied everything (goggles gloves and suit) we needed for protection except a face / neck covering or mask, but we researched ahead and brought some of our own. Definitely recommend grabbing something on Amazon for like $6 before you go!

Well organised an attentive, we can heartly recommend this adventure including surfing the dust down the steep slope. Even for us retirees with medium fitness it was absolutely do- and enjoyable. It was windy but that helped against the heat when hiking up. In all for us a must do in a great scenery when in or near León

Wow!!! What a fantastic experience! We did the volcano boarding at Volcano Cerro Negro with Franklin and it was incredible! My favorite thing about the experience was that Franklin explained so many things to us about the city and about many of the places that we drove by. He also took amazing photos and videos for us. He was patient with us as we made our way up the volcano. He was very professional. He communicated with us before the date and also showed up right on time. This is the best activity I did in Leon and I highly recommend this!

Best day ever is all I can say to describe this amazing private Leon City tour with Franklin for the 5 of us. He is so knowledgeable about the history of Leon and Nicaragua and speaks perfect English. The smoothies were a real surprise treat ❤️ He recommended the best place for lunch right in the city square with such a fun atmosphere. Then we headed for adventure to Cerros Negra for some Volcano Boarding in his nice air conditioned Land Cruiser. No need to even bring your cell phone because Franklin captures everything you need plus more and airdrops photos and videos at the end of the tour. He also had a nice surprise for us with fresh fruit and beverages after we finished sliding down the volcano. This by far was the best combination tour we have done. We felt like we were VIPs the whole day. Look no further and hire Franklin for your private tour. Thanks again Franklin!!

Franklin, Jorge, and Ezekiel were all very friendly and experienced. Originally, this activity seemed dangerous. However, you can control the speed going down by using your heels to slow down or leaning back to go faster. My family and I had a bunch of fun doing this activity - I wish I went faster! Also, the volcano view was fantastic!

We wanted to experience as much as possible in the limited time we had in Nicaragua which is why we decided to book a tour with Vamos Travel Nicaragua. We wanted to see the country from a local’s perspective which is how we met Franklin, the owner of Vamos Travel Nicaragua
Franklin does it all! From history, transportation, photography, and friend, it was so helpful to travel through Nicaragua with a local expert! Right away we knew we made the right decision.. It was a great feeling to have someone waiting for us at the Costa Rica / Nicaragua border.

Vamos Travel Nicaragua crafts their tours to best experience the country's history, culture, and most importantly food. =) Our favorite experiences were volcano boarding, Masaya volcano and the León city tour. With more than 16 years of experience as a certified tour guide, Franklin is a walking encyclopedia of dates and did a great job of conveying the history and information in an engaging and interesting way!

Vamos Travel Nicaragua is a master at customizing his tours to each of their customers. We told Franklin the things we wanted to see and he made sure that we were able to experience them. It was very helpful with our limited time to have his honest opinion on what was worth seeing and what we could skip. We really wish that we had time to explore the beautiful country of Nicaragua, but so thankful for our incredible experience with Vamos Travel Nicaragua!

We did the volcano hike followed by a "sleigh ride" with Vamos. Awesome experience, our guide always ensured a good atmosphere, imparted a lot of knowledge and at the same time captured everything professionally with his skills on the camera. Highly Recommended!
