    What to Expect

    After leaving the hotel, we will head west to Salvadoran to a volcano complex, this is an approximate journey of 1.5 hours from San Salvador. On the way we will have impressive views of the volcanoes: Santa Ana, Cerro Verde and Izalco. We will begin our hike to the Santa Ana volcano, it has an approximate duration of 2 hours to reach the top and 2 hours to return, but in all the journey you will enjoy impressive landscapes. Despite being the tallest, it is uploaded by people of all ages. This volcano made its last eruption in 2005, so the upper part is without vegetation.
    Upon reaching the top you can observe the beautiful turquoise lagoon that boils inside the crater, you will have a view of almost 365 ° of the Salvadoran territory.
    Then we will visit Lake Coatepeque, this is considered the most beautiful lake in all of El Salvador. We will take our lunch here, and you can swim in the refreshing waters of this lake. After our visit to Lake Coatepeque, it is time to start our return to your hotel.
