The main reason Chris and I wanted to go to León was to go volcano boarding. Other than that, we didn’t’ have much plans and expectations. We knew León was a pretty big city with a very popular cathedral, but we didn’t expect to actually fall in love with the city like that! León is a university city with batidos (smoothies) restaurants at every corner and the cheapest comedors I’ve been to. It has a pretty young crowd and a lot of food to try. But that’s not it: the city center itself is beautiful, with tons of churches and colonial …

After all, we did a trip to a tequila factory last year in Mexico and loved it. So after an exhausting day climbing a volcano twice, tasting rum and walking around a factory seemed like a great plan. We booked our tour with the Lazybones hostel (even though we weren’t staying there) …

I don’t write many posts for the blog, but this is one that got me a bit excited. Virginie and I went to León, Nicaragua for a few days and when I heard you could slide down a volcano on a piece of wood, I got pretty excited. For one, how many times in your life do you get to climb a volcano? Even better if you get to ride down the side on a little toboggan! The day started as most tours usually do. Everyone meets up early in the morning and gets in some form of transportation. True to …
