Sandboarding is one of the trendiest sports in many regions across Central and South America, where you can enjoy riding on some of the tallest sand dunes in the world.

The sport is especially popular in Peru, where you can find some great peaks and world-famous sand surfing hotspots, but Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Bolivia all have plenty of sand boarding and sand sledding opportunities to offer.

Want to give volcano boarding a try? Look no further than the Cerro Negro volcano in Nicaragua, or the Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. Sandboarding in Central and South America takes the thrill to brand new levels!
