Volcanoes & Surfing in Nicaragua (Guided)

May 8-13, 2018


Join Sourced Adventures for an incredibly unique and action packed adventure in Nicaragua!

May 8-13, 2018

Come meet new friends on this 6-Day, 5-night guided adventure!  We pack in the very best that Nicaragua has to offer while working with and learning from a number of local non-profits. We start things off with a zipline experience down the side of a volcano and a coffee cupping. From there, we’ll head south and spend a few days enjoying the amazing surf beaches north of San Juan del Sur. While there, we’ll enjoy daily yoga, surf lessons and lots of time on the spectacular beaches nestled within rocky coasts.

After some time in the sun, we’ll take a drive up the coast to the North of Nicaragua and the fabled city of Leon. There we’ll get a chance to indulge in some cultural experiences including a visit to the Flor de Cana Rum production house. We’ll also use Leon as a base of operations to do a quick excursion to a nearby volcano where we’ll hike up and sled down the side for a unique “volcano boarding”. For our final night, we’ll be hosted a local non-profit cultural center for a traditional dinner, dance performance and salsa class. Throughout the trip you’ll be accompanied by a trained and awesome Sourced Adventures guide.

Are you among the thousands of people who have enjoyed a beer while tubing on Delaware or crushed the slopes at Hunter Mountain with us? If so, and you like those day trips – this trip is for you. See below for a full list of inclusions or shoot us a call if you want to learn more.


| DAY 1 |

On Day 1 you’ll arrive in Managua where you’ll be picked up from the airport and transported to the Buena Vista Hotel in Playa Maderas. On the way you’ll stop for a coffee tasting and an exhilarating ziplining experience along the side of the Mombacho Volcano!

On day three, make the most of the included surfing rentals, before another relaxing yoga session in the afternoon. In the evening, the group will watch the sunset with drinks in hand.

| DAY 4 |

On Day 4, we’ll head to the north – the fabled city of Leon. After a final breakfast in the lodge, we’ll load up for a guided drive up the coast. In Leon get ready for an authentic Rum tour! That night, we’ll be checking into Hotel Azul in Leon which will be our home base for exploring the city. 

| DAY 5 |

Lace up your boots because you’re going Volcano Boarding. Yes, you read that right — Volcano boarding! We’ll hike up the slopes of the active cinder cone volcano, known as Cerro Negro, before sliding down its steep, ashy face on boards. Following the unique Volcano Boarding experience, you’ll head back to León to check into the hotel for the evening. Then get ready for a night in León. That night, we’ll head out for a night on the town complete with an authentic local dinner, dance performance and salsa class. Keep up your energy, because after that we’re hitting the town for our final night.

| DAY 6 |

Enjoy a final farewell breakfast spread with the Sourced Adventures crew before heading to the airport to board your flight back home!


“This trip was even better than I expected. My girlfriend and I went together and had a blast. We were surprised how much stuff we fit into 6 days, but that was good because we really felt like we got our money’s worth. My favorite part was the volcano boarding because who can ever top that? Everything was super well organized so all we did was board a plane and they took care of the rest. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone!”

“I want to go back! The guides were organized and friendly which made the trip really enjoyable. I’ve never surfed before but the lessons were fun and I actually caught a wave or two! I think I’ll be telling stories from this trip for years.. Can’t wait to go back!”
