Located very close to San Salvador, Coatepeque Lake is a must visit meanwhile in El Salvador. We spent the day at Mikiterio, a family owned bed and breakfast located just in front of the lake. The grounds are perfectly manicured and you have 180 degrees...More
As part of my private tour for a day, we drove to the rim of this awesome lake for the views and a bite of lunch. Our outside table over-looked the lake and it was indeed a beautifully peaceful sight. The little restaurant also had...More
Very beautiful area. Lake is in a volcanic crater with a small island on it. You can take boat tours. There are restaurants on the rim looking down as well as restaurants at water level. Water is very clear. Lots of houses to rent and...More
Stopped by here for a view of the beautiful lake on our way to Santa Ana. There are lots of places to eat along the lake giving you lovely views while you dine. If not interested, at least stop for a picture and admire the...More
It is a beautiful lake located in a crater. Has spectacular views from the surrounding mountains. There are plenty of restaurants on the top and few are on the shore, although the road to the shore is pretty bad.
Lovely lake in Coatepeque. There are few restaurants along the shore so you can eat some nice food while watching the beautiful scenery of the lake. It only takes less than 1 hour from san salvador. Prepare swimsuit if you want to dive in.

The whole thing lasted about eight hours and I highly recommend this company. I had Mario Jr. for a guide and he is great. It's not cheap, I don't recall the exact price but it was well over $100, but that included the entrance fee to the National Park and the boat ride on the lake. Also, when I went there was only I and one other fellow on the tour, so it was basically a personal tour, not a big group of tourists.
Anyways, whichever way you choose I'm sure you will love it. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I'd recommend renting a house online. Most of the properties are private houses. There are 2 Turicentros "tourist centers" but the only hotel is Torremolinos, and its not very well maintained, check out the reviews here on... More
I'd recommend renting a house online. Most of the properties are private houses. There are 2 Turicentros "tourist centers" but the only hotel is Torremolinos, and its not very well maintained, check out the reviews here on Tripadvisor. There is one hostel but I don't know anything about it. Hope that helps.
Hello, Planning a vacation with a few people, maybe a total of 6. We are landing in San Salvador and are looking for a driver to bring us to Tazumal from the airport, than an AirBnb in Lake Coatepeque for a night, then the volcano the next day followed by dropping us off at El Tunco where we will spend the rest of our days and could find our own way back to the airport. Does anybody have suggestions for that? Thanks!

We used EC Tours for all our transportation around El Salvador. Very happy with their service. Always prompt, safe vehicles, and most of the drivers/guides spoke at least a bit of English.

Day 5: Ruins at Tazumal, night at Park Imposible (how would we...More

Week-end getaway to ElS (14 Replies)
Found a good fare to El Salvador so thinking of making a quick week-end getaway this week-end (Sat thru Tue). Read through most of the posts but still having a difficult time finding some of the places in the map. I understand most places are within 90 mts from San Sal. It will be two adults. Here are some questions. Is it best to rent a car? I have driven in places like Costa Rica - so I know what it is like to drive in that region. How easy is it to get in / out of the city to the Pan...More

Thanks for the post. I went ahead and reserved a small car - just in case (can cancel it) but the air and hotel is not refundable - so we will be in ElS Sat. Thanks for the info. I did look at 3 of the videos (partly) and driving does not look that bad - so I am leaning towards driving. I don't mind getting lost (part of the adventure) and I do like to stop when I want to etc. Will look into a private hire - if not too expensive. As far as Sat - would love to join you (even if we were...More
