7. Ash Board Cerro Negro
This “sport” was created only in the last 10 years when local adventurers and expats decided to see what would happen if they tricked out some old snowboards and pointed them down the side of a local volcano. It has since grown into one of the more popular day trips out of León, a cracked-paint, colonial university town in northwest Nicaragua. You can book the volcano-surfing trip at any hostel in town, or you can go straight to Va Pues Tours. ($30 day trip from León; vapues.com)
