National Park Cerro Verde, Santa Ana

(4.7/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Showcasing some of El Salvador's most amazing volcanos, National Park Cerro Verde takes you on a dynamic nature experience along eco-trails, through lush dwarf forests, atop volcanoes, and by volcanic lakes. The national park includes two volcanos and a volcanic lake. Sitting at an altitude 2,025 m (6,670 ft), the volcano Cerro Verde invites you to walk through clouds as well as in and around its volcanic crater, following a hike through the forest. Known as the lighthouse of the Pacific, the park's second volcano, Santa Ana, rewards visitors with pristine views over a misty landscape including low-lying bush and forest. Coatepeque Lake, formed by the collapse of two volcanic cones, invites you to enjoy lunch by its picturesque tranquil shoreline.

  • Well worth a visit and explore to get close to the local fauna and wildlife. Bus takes a while but is fun 
  • I was on a private tour, so it was really tranquil. I could spot some wild birds, and the vegetation here is very unique and distinct. 
  • This is the start of the Santa Anna volcano tour. There is a beautiful flower garden at the start with humming birds and a view of the newly formed izalco volcano.
