Santa Ana Hiking

    horas Duración estimada

Hike to the rim of the Santa Ana Volcano for a peek at the emerald-green lake lying at the bottom of its crater. Better known locally as Ilamatepec, this massive stratovolcano in the Cerro Verde National Park is the highest in El Salvador, and the views will be spectacular throughout your hike. The volcano’s eruptions were first recorded in the 16th century, although more than 100 years passed before the last eruption in 2005. As you ascend the trail, you will notice the landscape changing dramatically from dense cloud forest at the bottom to barren rocky terrain near the top, which will allow for sweeping views in every direction. From the overlook near the volcanic rim, you will see the Pacific Ocean, Izalco Volcano and Lake Coatepeque. The descent will be just as picturesque. As you re-enter the cloud forest, look for wildlife such as sloths, monkeys and the torogoz, El Salvador’s national bird.
