Santa Ana Volcano (Volcán Ilamatepec) Tours and Activities

star-5
68 Reviews

The star attraction of the Cerro Verde National Park is also its most menacing – the Santa Ana Volcano (Volcán Ilamatepec), El Salvador’s biggest and most active volcano, last erupting as recently as 2005, when the force of the eruption flung car-sized rocks for more than 1.5 km.

Scaling the 2,381-meter peak of Santa Ana is a popular challenge for hikers, a 1.5-hour trail climbing up from the scenic San Blas Plateau and affording spectacular views of the neighboring Coatepeque caldera and Izalco volcano. From the summit, the views span the entire National Park, but equally impressive is the otherworldly terrain found at the top of the volcano and hikers can walk around the rim of the crater, looking out over the four nested calderas and an emerald green crater lake.

The Santa Ana volcano is renowned for its scenic beauty, its emerald green lagoon at the crater, and an impresive view of the Izalco volcano. However, if you take the tour with us, we guarantee you an unforgettable experience, we request a special permit to enter the volcano in the early hours and so the volcano is only ours and you can take the best photographs.

Hike Volcan Santa Ana, the highest volcano in El Salvador. Its an active volcano with a crater of 3kms of circunference and 400mts deep. Get ready for 3:30 hours of  beautiful trails in the evergreen forest mixed with volcanic rock and pyroclastic material closer to the summit. The active crater  plus the view of the other volcanoes and the Pacific Ocean, probably the best view in the whole country. Enjoy different temperatures and be prepared for cold winds, lots of sun or rain depending the season.

Santa Ana volcano hike with privileged early access. Go safe and skip the crowds

star-5

Skip the crowds and lines with privileged early access This is a private early departure, not the 11 AM group hike. As licensed guide I'm granted with privileged access, way ahead of the daily group departure. This way you go on your own pace making the experience more enjoyable. You know, the larger the group the slower it goes (and the noisier it is). Even weather tends to be more favorable on early hours. This walk goes from the cloud forest on the skirts to the volcanic wasteland by the crater. From the top you can see the steamy sulfuric acid lake at the bottom and the multicolored layers of ash on the rim as well Coatepeque caldera lake below. Skip the large groups, the warmest hours, the lines and the slow walkers. With me you can spend as much time you want at the crater. No hurries, no crowds. Enjoy the views, take pictures, Time's yours!. You mark the pace. It's a 9 Km (total). The trail partially shady. There's restrooms by the park ranger's station. Suitable for kids.
