    What to Expect
    Depart from your San Salvador hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and get acquainted with your expert guide during the scenic journey to Cerro Verde. Feel your excitement heighten as you approach the park then disembark to explore a series fascinating eco-trails. 

    Enjoy a 45-minute sightseeing tour of El Salvador’s most impressive national park, strolling along densely forested pathways to sights of natural splendor. Arrive at Cerro Verde, a colossal inactive volcano that soars to an altitude of 6,670 feet (2,035 meters) and covers a mammoth 1,235 acres (500 hectares) of landscape. 

    Emerge from the clouds at the crater and venture within for an unearthly experience amid the inexorable power of nature. After further exploration of the enclave’s fascinating flora and fauna, watch hummingbirds hover from a lookout point that boasts spectacular vistas of the Izalco volcano. Witness the vibrant red hue of the lava then gaze at the impressive mound of Sant Ana volcano, an impressive natural monument surrounded by dwarf forest. 

    Next, leave Cerro Verde National park in favor of one of the world’s most beautiful lakes. Arrive at Coatepeque Lake in your spacious vehicle and gasp as your eyes feast upon the spectacular scene created by the collapse of two volcanic cones. Capture photographs and recline upon the shores before revitalizing with lunch at a recommended local restaurant (own expense). 

    Take an optional boat ride across the surface of the luscious lake or indulge in adrenaline-fueled activities like paragliding or jet skiing (own expense). Return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to San Salvador, where the tour concludes.

    This tour is way too overpriced. The guide was very gentle but he was not a professional. He had not very clear what the tour offers and asked me more than once what I wanted to do, instead of guiding me through the attractions. The...More
