You hike up a bare volcano slope in the burning sun for 45 minutes to only ride down in a minute or two. By the time you figure out how to steer the board you will already be at the bottom. The last tour of the day at Volcano Masaya National Park leaves at about 4 pm.
The hike up the paved road to the top of the volcano crater takes about an hour-and-a-half and leads you through the midst of a volcanic landscape with fields of black porous rocks formed in previous eruptions, and small trees scattered in between.
Once at the top you get to look into the smoky crater that opens right below you. Hitch a ride with the guides back down to the entrance.
Even though this is the most famous on the Nicaraguan Pacific coast, the beach in San Juan is far from being spectacular.
There are a few hostel or eco-resorts in each town, a couple of locally run restaurants serving fresh seafood, no crowds on the beach and great waves for surfing. El Viento Papagayo, a constant stream of wind from the great lake of Nicaragua blows towards the ocean almost all year long, mixing the waters and ensuring waves no matter the time of the day and year.
