VOLCANOES AND COATEPEQUE LAKE

(Daily Tour)

For nature lovers we’ll visit with nature we offer the crater of Santa Ana volcano and the Cerro Verde National Park. The Cerro Verde is a dormant volcano located at an altitude of 2.035 meters above sea level and with an area of 500 hectares. Inside and around its crater there is a cloud forest which has a temperature of between 12º and 18º C. The volcanoes are located at the end of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range in the Departments of Santa Ana and Ahuachapán.

Here you can enjoy footpaths with information boards and inside the volcano crater are viewpoints from where you can observe the Lake of Coatepeque, Izalco and Ilamatepec volcanoes, the city of Sonsonate, the towns of Juayúa , Nahuizalco, Salcoatitán, the port of Acajutla and part of the mountain range of Apaneca.

The Izalco volcano, 1,870 meters high, has a spectacular volcanic cone, which is at the present time devoid of any significant vegetation.

After visiting the Cerro Verde National Park we will go on a boat trip on the Lake of Coatepeque which was formed by the collapse of ashes of two volcanic cones, giving rise to the lake.
