More than a hostel...The home of Volcano Boarding!
Volcano boarding is an extreme thrill-seeking kind of sport created by an equally extreme, Australian thrill seeker, Daryn Webb, Bigfoot Hostel's original owner. After Daryn opened Bigfoot in 2004, he began to cultivate the sport. Daryn and his crew endured a fair share of trial and error, testing everything from picnic tables to mattresses until they arrived to a sit-down, wooden toboggan, made of metal and Formica-reinforced plywood. The adventure sport was born!
Volcano boarding was a world first. León became the only place in the world you could slide down the side of an active volcano. By 2009, Bigfoot Volcano Boarding sent 10,000 boarders down Cerro Negro. Today, over 25,000 people have sled down its slope at up to 95km/hr!
Big Foot Hostel offers over 100 beds at Leon, 40 beds at Las Peñitas Beach in Nicaragua; and 60 beds at Antigua in Guatemala.
