#1 of 11 in Things to do in Santa Ana Department
Take in the spectacular views of green hills surrounding a deep blue body of water at Lake Coatepeque. Plenty of water-sport activities await you in the crater itself; don't miss the surreal experience of a swim or boat ride inside an actual volcano. Enjoy the views while dining or sipping on your favorite beverage from one of the many venues on the hills overlooking the lake. Sunsets here are particularly special.

  • It is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Only 45 min from San Salvador by the Interamerican Highway, the place offers very good amount of restaurants and some hotels. Definitely a must-see and is a safe place.

  • We visited here from Santa Ana and had a nice afternoon. There are restaurants along the shore where you can eat and enjoy the views.  more »
  • For a trip here definitely need a jeep road is bad, but a trip to this volcanic Lake has become one of the most pleasant excursions in El Salvador. Miguel Coatlinchan Lake is sacred, the sacred Mayan market town is a small island of Teopan, where eager to get all the tourists visiting El Salvador. We took a mask and flippers and nice to swim in the Lake, a surprisingly clean and clear water, although it has a distinctive bluish tint you can dine here fresh fish, I liked the restaurant Rancho Alegre., you can order a Jet Ski and just take the boat ride on the Lake.
