Top of El Salvador
, Nov 2021
As you continue hiking up Santa Ana, the views progressively get better. The terrain definitely requires hiking boots or high ankle shoes with good grip. Once we reached the top, it was great to see a guy selling "paletas" or ice cream. You can roam around the top of Santa Ana and view Lake Coatepeque and the other moutainous peaks. Benjamin was our tour guide and did an amazing job along with Fidel getting us up the volcano and back down safely. Looking forward to the next time in El Sal to head back up!
Santa Ana Volcano Hike

My Tour guid for this hike was amazing he picked me on time from my hostal and we beat traffic to the volcano the ride was about and hour before we arrived at the volcano he offers to stop at a gas station to get waters and restroom break. The home itself took me about 3 hours round trip. My tour guid was patient and could name almost every plant on the trail it was very interesting. Once you arrive at the top there a man up there who was a chest full of popsicles 10/10 recommended/needed! The view at the top is breathtaking and is a must do in El Salvador 🇸🇻
Wonderful experience!

We had a wonderful time hiking the Santa Ana volcano! Words cannot describe the views from up top! Our tour guide was great and made sure we had a good time. Just know it definitely is not a moderate hike!!
Fantastic volcano hike, great guide!

Had a great experience on this tour! Irving was a wonderful guide. The hotel pickup was very convenient and was very prompt as well. Irving had a lot to share about El Salvador and the volcano itself. We had a great lunch with a view of the lake. The hike can be a little difficult at times but take your time, and you will make it up in 1hr 15 - 2hrs depending on fitness levels. Would recommended to anyone that is looking to explore the nature of El Salvador.
The most priceless hiking tour

Great Guide & Hike...

We have taken this trip with our guide Eduardo and with him we have also taken Ruta de las Flores the following day. Both trips are highly recommended, the hike is not hard, takes about an hr very scenic indeed. Be cognisant of the traffic on the way, and make sure you have sufficient liquids... Eduardo is very knowledgeable and goes to an extra length to make the trip more fun...
