Cerro Negro is the youngest and most frequently active volcano in Central America. It appears as an ominous rising of black sand, void of vegetation, with a steaming crater. Cerro Negro is the only Nicaraguan volcano where extreme adventurists can go volcano surfing (also known as "volcano sand boarding" and "volcano skiing,") a sport that has quickly growing in popularity. In 2001, Frenchman Eric Barone broke a world record by descending the Cerro Negro by mountain bike, exceeding 80 mph.
