Immerse yourself in the tranquility of calm water set atop a semi-dormant volcano at Lake Ilopango, El Salvador's second largest lake. A carpet of greenery in the form of hills and flat grassy areas surround the lake, which is up to 230 m (750 ft) deep and covers a surface area of 72 km2 (28 sq mi). Nearby restaurants offering visitors the chance to take in views of pristine scenery while indluging on some mouth watering cuisineIt sit nearby. Hire a boat and float across the calm water of the lake or bring some diving gear and find an abundance of fish swimming beneath the fresh water. Lake Ilopango is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, San Salvador Edition.
