During this El Salvador Combo Day Tour you will visit the main highlights of El Salvador including Cerro Verde National Park at the Lake and Volcano Complex, Coatepeque Lake as well as the Mayan Sites of Joya de Cerén and San Andrés. What are you waiting for?
  • Discover top El Salvador attractions in just one day
  • Hike the area’s most visited volcanoes: Izalco, Santa Ana, and Cerro Verde
  • Learn about Mayan culture at the Joya de Ceren and San Andres ruins
  • Guide provides commentary about history, nature, and culture throughout
  • All transportation from San Salvador included
What to Expect
Begin your tour with hotel pickup from San Salvador. Then, head to the first of three volcanoes: Cerro Izalco. Follow your guide on a 45-minute hike through the coffee plantations and cloud forest of Cerro Verde National Park en route to the crater, where a panoramic view of the surrounding volcanic line awaits.
Continue to Santa Ana Volcano for a chance to see a dwarf-forest landscape distinct to Mesoamerica, followed by a trip to Coatepeque Lagoon at the summit of Cerro Verde.
In the afternoon, visit the UNESCO-listed Joya de Ceren archaeological site to learn about daily life among the Mayan people who once lived there. Because the ruins were preserved by ash, they are sometimes called the “Pompeii of the Americas.” Your tour concludes with a visit to the San Andres ceremonial ruins and hotel drop-off.
