National Park Nature / Park
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.

  • A highlight of El Salvador for sure. Santa Ana volcano is a great hike where you can look down into the crater and its sulphurous lake. It's two hours up and not too challenging. Fun fact: these are the volcanoes that inspired the ones on the planet of the Little Prince children's book!
  • Awesome national park. If you visit make sure to do the volcano hike. It departs at 11am so make sure you get to the park well before then just to be sure you don't miss it.
  • Be there at 10. Eat your lunch. 10:40 departure. Loved every minute. Simply spectacular. We will return.
  • Not much to do but great views of Volcan de Izalco.
  • One of the biggest national park of the country, you can climb Izalco and Santa Ana volcanos
