Although other companies had cheaper volcano boarding in Leon, the thought of going with 30 other people was, well not what we wanted. We arrived at Va Pues around 5pm and immediately negotiated a sandboarding trip for the next day. With tourism down, they were more than happy to negotiate the price and in the end we paid $3 per person more than the larger tours, and ours ended up being private. Our guide, Wilbur was excellent and on our hike to the volcano he explained the geology of the area, pointing out recent lava fields in the distance. Relaxed and flexible, Wilbur didn’t hesitate to add an additional hike into the crater at our request. Patient, intelligent and fluent in English, we had a great time with Wilbur and Va Pues. Although we took a sandboarding tour, the company offers tours out of Leon and Granada, Nicaragua.
