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

As Licensed Guide with 400+ successful summits you can be sure I'm one of the most experienced guides for this destination.

The hike goes from the cloud forest on the skirts to the volcanic wasteland at the top. From here you can see the steamy sulfuric-acid lake at the bottom and the multicolored layers of ash on the walls of the crater and Coatepeque caldera lake.
Beyond just a walk, this is an interpretative hike. Learn facts of geology, eruptive history, etc. of the volcanoes.

Skip the crowds, the warmest hours, the lines and the slow walkers and queues.
This is a private departure, not the 11 AM joint hike. This way you go your own pace, making the experience more enjoyable.
The larger the group the slower it goes. Even weather tends to be more favorable on early hours.
Seize more of your day! No hurries, no crowds. Enjoy the views, take pictures, Time's yours! You mark the pace.

Trail partially shady. There's restrooms by the park ranger's station.

Hike Suitable for kids.

Pass By: National Park Cerro Verde, Santa Ana El Salvador

Parque Nacional Los Volcanes (AKA Cerro Verde) is a compound of 3 major volcanoes, including the tallest (Santa Ana) and the youngest in El Salvador (Izalco).
The lands in and beyond the Protected Area are habitat for one third of the known wildlife species in El Salvador and a mix of environments: from the coffee farms to the moorlands, and from solidified lava flows to the lush cloud forest.
Protected Area is one of the natural jewels of El Salvador.

Stop At: Santa Ana Volcano, El Salvador

With this privileged early access you skip the crowds, the warmest hours and waiting in line. You walk your own pace and spend more time enjoying by the crater.
Also called Santa Ana, this the tallest volcano in El Salvador and a terrific hike with stunning views to the valleys and Coatepeque caldera lake below. This is also the Easternmost peak of the majestic Apaneca mountain range, a belt formed by 14 volcanoes and the largest coffee country of El Salvador.
Along the hike we walk through diverse environments, from the cloud forest to wasteland on the top. A couple of miradores offer great views and a good place for a rest. Once on the top you can see the massive and deep crater with a steaming turquoise sulfuric-acid lake at the bottom and the fumaroles spewing sulfuric gas.
On a clear day from here you can see up to 9 volcanoes, the fertile Zapotitán valley and the Pacific Ocean coastline on the distance.

Stop At: Lake Coatepeque, Coatepeque El Salvador

Enjoy a Salvadoran lunch in a restaurant sitting on the rim of the ancient caldera, overlooking Coatepeque, the most beautiful natural lake of El Salvador laying placid on the outskirts of the Santa Ana volcano.
