We went to Telica vulcano hike. Let me put it straight. I would do it with them again because I like the fact that they give back to the community and other small details such as give you water in a recycled bottles and care about the environment. However the hike was supper rushed. There were two girls with low... More

We went volcano boarding with Kaley, Matilda, and Miguel! They were fantastic guides and kept everything interesting throughout the duration of the trip. Having a wonderful, homemade touch was a nice touch and definitely set these guys apart from the other tour providers. All the profits made by Quetzaltrekkers go directly to local charities, so if you're planning to do... More

We went with Quetzaltrekkers to the San Christobal volcano. We thought it was a pretty tough hike, but we were warrant of that beforehand. For the paid guide it was clearly the 100th time up the volcano - he seemed to be in a hurry. My boyfriend could kinda catch up with his speed, while I didn't. So the volunteer... More

Cerro negro volcano boarding great fun a bit nerve wracking at the top, but fantastic experience going down the slope. A bit tricky getting to the top with a badly sprained ankle from another trip but helped by Thomas the tour leader who carried my board part of the way Really like what this company is doing with volunteers. Suitable... More

Great choice for finding activities. They have all sorts of tours and are very laid back. The fact that part of the proceeds go to children charity makes it even better.

This activity is very appropriate for the younger adult crowd, into a new adventure. Not so sure it's a good idea for children, though.

We used this company for a couple reasons and are very happy we did so!! First, after their expenses the money goes to different programs around Leon to help the children. Second, the only company that allows you to go down the volcano twice! Emma was a great guide with lots of knowledge and made our day very memorable!! We... More

If you're thinking about going on a hike with Quetzaltrekkers stop thinking and go for it! We had a perfect time :) The vulcanoboarding with Betsy and Rolando was great - they told us a lot about cerro negro and the sourrounding vulcanos and gave us very useful instructions for the ride. Afterwards we hiked El Hoyo with Kaeli, Miguel... More
