Lake Coatepeque, Coatepeque

#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.
