OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN LEON

CERRO NEGRO

This active volcano is the youngest on the continent and completely covered with black volcanic debris.  The summit (670m) can be reached on foot in about an hour, after hiking around the crater you rapidly descend in an unforgettable ski-like manner.

CITY TOUR

Wander through cobbled streets admiring the colonial heritage and soaking up the lively and welcoming atmosphere, sample the fresh local coffee in one of the beautiful plazas.

TREKKING

Escape the tropical heat of the plains into the cool mountain air.  Walk through pristine cloud forest reserves with spectacular views and plentiful wildlife. Horse riding is also possible
