The most amazing volcano experience in El Salvador

Santa Ana, El Salvador’s second largest city marked the end of our travels. We were slightly wistful once we got there. It took us one hour from Ataco to Santa Ana. Our melancholy quickly faded when we met Rosi, our host, who picked us up from the city center. To be closer to the volcano we decided to stay a little outside of the city. As soon as we passed the gates of Rosi’s house, we were overwhelmed by the luxurious estate. Rosi’s son and his best friend Mario greeted us warmly, and we quickly felt right at home.

The most amazing volcano experience in El Salvador

Excited for the last volcano for this journey was awaiting us tomorrow. Volcano Santa Ana’s incredibly impressive crater marks the highlight for many travelers coming to El Salvador for a good reason. We were left speechless (and breathless) when we first set our eyes on the turquoise crater lake. Despite stunning landscapes, Santa Ana offers a perfect base for travelers seeking to get to know the El Salvadorian culture and traditions. Yet, the charming colonial city maintains its authentic vibe, and you are unlikely to spot other travelers on the streets.
