This volcano has an altitude of 2,381 meters (7.812ft) above sea level. With good weather conditions you have a breathtaking view all over Lake “Coatepeque”. The volcano lake is green and should not be missed in your El Salvador photo album. The hike up the volcano is not too tough and takes about 4 hours (roundtrip). ETERNAL SUMMER TOURS is a reliable and experienced tour operator that offers this trip to Santa Ana. They also offer fishing trips (this should also be under the TOP 10 actually!).
The volcano “Conachgua” is getting more and more popular for national und international tourist in the last three years because it offers you probably one of the most exiting views you will ever see in your life! You can stay overnight with a tent and enjoy the sunset and sunrise. The viewpoint offers a view till Nicaragua and Honduras. This place is the definition of “instagramability” – don’t forget your selfie-stick ;-).
We can recommend this tour operator to book a trip:
We would call it “The Beast”. Volcano Izalco is way more difficult to reach the peak than “Santa Ana”. Let’s say it’s something for people who are looking for a challenge. The way to the peak is pretty “rocky” and can be about 45 degrees steep but it’s worth it! There is no vegetation up there but the view can also be astounding also. If you’re an adventure person we can recommend you the “Izalco”. If you’re more like a “chilled-out hiker”, go for the “Santa Ana”. Again we can recommend you ETERNAL SUMMER TOURS. Baltazar is an experienced guide who is reliable and professional.
