Ilamatepec ( Santa Ana ) Volcano Hiking Adventure + Lake Coatepeque.

18 reviews
This is one of the top tourist attractions in El Salvador.<br>Located in the biological corridor call Apaneca-Ilamatepec, Santa Ana volcano is considered one of the jewels of Central America. <br>If you are looking for the best things to do , We have designed this tour for you. <br>The walk takes approximately 2 hours to climb and another 2 hours to descend, this can vary according to the physical condition of the people. On top of the volcano you can see one of the best craters worldwide with an emerald green lagoon, <br><br>At the end of the adventure we drive to Coatepeque lake for a relaxing time and have lunch. <br>The tour is fantastic for nature lovers or adventurers.

We were one of the first people here in the morning and the view from the coffee shop was breathtaking. We went on the nature walk and were disappointed we didn't really see much wildlife. Happens I guess but didnt really make the trip. Views were great from lookout points. Was here 4th of March for the morning.

Well worth the time and effort! The views were spectacular. Our guide Selene was excellent and patient when we needed to go slower or take a break.The climb was challenging for a couple of oldish (55 & 60) people, but definitely doable. This was a highlight of our month long adventure in El Salvador.

We came on a Saturday on December 21 with Salvadorean Tours. We got there at 10 am and there were plenty of people arriving already. We stayed for 1 hour and by the time we left, the parking lot was full. Our guide asked a local guide to join us on a loop walk where we went up 2 platforms to see the lagoon. That walk took 50 minutes but at a very leisurely pace. You do have to walk in the forest. We had great views on the platforms and the weather was nice.

This park is really awesome! There’s 3 volcanos all in one location. From the entrance of the park you can see Volcan Izalco. Per tour guide, you can climb Volcan Izalco only on the weekends. My dad and I climbed up to Volcan ilamatepec. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to get to the volcanic crater. Once you’re at the top you get beautiful views of lago cuatepeque, Volcan Cerro verde, Volcan Izalco, and the inside of volcan ilamatepec. This was probably my favorite part of my trip to El Salvador. The tour up the volcano departs at 11. I would recommend that you take some good hiking boots, especially if you have weak ankles like myself. It’s a pretty good hike so I wouldn’t recommend this hike if you’re really out of shape. Several people on our tour had to stay behind and didn’t make it to the top.
