Top of El Salvador
As you continue hiking up Santa Ana, the views progressively get better. The terrain definitely requires hiking boots or high ankle shoes with good grip. Once we reached the top, it was great to see a guy selling "paletas" or ice cream. You can roam around the top of Santa Ana and view Lake Coatepeque and the other moutainous peaks. Benjamin was our tour guide and did an amazing job along with Fidel getting us up the volcano and back down safely. Looking forward to the next time in El Sal to head back up!

Santa Ana Volcano Hiking Tour + Coatepeque Lake Sightseeing
Had a great experience on this tour! Irving was a wonderful guide. The hotel pickup was very convenient and was very prompt as well. Irving had a lot to share about El Salvador and the volcano itself. We had a great lunch with a view of the lake. The hike can be a little difficult at times but take your time, and you will make it up in 1hr 15 - 2hrs depending on fitness levels. Would recommended to anyone that is looking to explore the nature of El Salvador.

Santa Ana Volcano Hiking Tour and Coatepeque Lake visit
I absolutely loved this tour. It was very intimate. It was me, my bf and the tour guide. We were picked up from our hotel in San Salvador. Our guide Osmaro was prompt, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. Me and my bf are fairly active, but the hike gave us a run for our money. Round trip it took about 4 hours, but it was well worth it. Absolutely amazing views. If you can get the earliest departure do so. We started our hike at 7:30 and had the place to ourselves to take pics. On our way down we noticed tons of people coming up. Afterwards we had lunch at a nice spot overlooking the lake.

Santa Ana Volcano Hiking Tour and Coatepeque Lake visit
Fantastic day trip. Osmaro picked us up at our hotel on time and the adventure began. It’s a vigorous hike to the top of the Santa Ana volcono but the views of the lake in the crater are spectacular.

My Tour guid for this hike was amazing he picked me on time from my hostal and we beat traffic to the volcano the ride was about and hour before we arrived at the volcano he offers to stop at a gas station to get waters and restroom break. The home itself took me about 3 hours round trip. My tour guid was patient and could name almost every plant on the trail it was very interesting. Once you arrive at the top there a man up there who was a chest full of popsicles 10/10 recommended/needed! The view at the top is breathtaking and is a must do in El Salvador 🇸🇻

Santa Ana Volcano Hiking Tour + Coatepeque Lake Sightseeing
We have taken this trip with our guide Eduardo and with him we have also taken Ruta de las Flores the following day. Both trips are highly recommended, the hike is not hard, takes about an hr very scenic indeed. Be cognisant of the traffic on the way, and make sure you have sufficient liquids... Eduardo is very knowledgeable and goes to an extra length to make the trip more fun...
