You know the old saying: You haven’t really lived until you’ve careened down the side of an active volcano on a wooden sled. Or something like that. Yes, you, too, can partake in the adrenaline rush to end all adrenaline rushes, at Nicaragua’s Cerro Negro volcano—which last erupted in 1999—courtesy of a company called Bigfoot. For the frighteningly low price of $28, you’ll be provided with: “transportation in a monster Mercedes truck, all safety equipment including board, jumpsuit, and goggles, fun and bilingual guide, volcano boarding tutorial, your speed clocked by the Bigfoot radar gun, a cold celebratory beer at the bottom and two Mojitos upon return to Bigfoot!” At that price, it’s worth it for the two mojitos alone.
