  • Stunning view from the top of the volcano. I slept overnight in a cottage near the volcano and the next day hope the group coming from Cerro Verde to climb the volcano accompanied by guides (it is not recommended to upload only). It should have good physical condition for the walk (though it is less heavy than the Izalco volcano). Would definitely make again!

  • I recommend visiting the Park green hill, one place closer to the sky from where you can walk between paths surrounded by nature a climate cool and overlooking natural beauties as the volcano of izalco, called the lighthouse of the Pacific and you can also enjoy the view of the Lake of coatepeque. It is an economic and family walk

  • A place for people who prefer to challenge your physical condition, it is preferable to go on weekends, but my visit do it with a tour operator, the view is great where you can see to the bottom of the crater a turquoise lagoon. Very nice experience, do not forget that when you reach the top, as tradition you can taste a palette of parasol
