First of all, you're probably reading this to find out if 1) it's safe 2) how to get there and back 3) if you can physically do it. Allow me to answer some of those concerns for you ;) First off, it is safe. There...More
Nothing wrong with various speeds of hikers. The bummer is that for the most part the entire group is held to a slow pace and leaving the parking area around 11a. If you are a person/group who move fast, this will feel really slow. We...More
This is a volcanic region, so naturally there are lots of volcanos around. I have been to many - Indonesia, Hawaii, Chile... so I would have to compare with others not the volcano itself but everything else leading to it.
Unless you join a private...More
The pictures do not do justice! There is a sulfur spring on top of the volcano, absolutely emerald green and beautiful. The 3 hour hike up was difficult and is definitely not recommended for someone with weak knees or heart conditions but once you're up...More
I have to admit, the hike was a tough one but you can take your time and it is well work it! The view at the top is stunning!! It's also a lot cooler which is great after that hike up. It's also amazing to...More
EC Tours showed us an excellent day -- thank you, Estefany! EC Tours was very easy to work with during the planning phase -- good communication and easy PayPal payment. Estefany picked us up at our hotel right on time, and her advice about what...More
Out of all the routes that there are in El Salvador, this is my favorite! I highly recommend to visit this volcano with family or friends or even by yourself with a local or a tour operator. It is worthy.
It’s a moderate hike to the top. I’m 4& and I could out hike the local tourists. The air quality was a bit hazy at this time of year so the view was not fantastic. However, seeing the green colour of the crater lake was...More
You make sure you take a few hours for this (4-5) Just the hike, 4 hours.
It's a guided hike which starts at about 10am (Make sure you are there few minutes before). You pay around $8 if you are a foreigner.
As we went...More
We did this hike as part of a tour through El Salvador and it was amazing. It was quite crowded the day we went and we saw a snake (yikes!) but absolutely worth it. There were even local ice cream vendors at the top because...More

Sorry for the delay in responding... $3.00 person in the car to drive in the gate, $1.00 at same entrance to park. In the parking lot we got the overview of the hike from the tourist police of which the Maine theme was: it's challenging and bring water . Then we each gave our donation to the tour guide who, along with the tourist police will accompany us and answer questions. Then we turned around, got back in car, parked at El Tibet hotel (paid $2 to park there). El Tibet is down the hill from Cerro Verde Park and near the entrance to the hike starting point. Then we hiked from there up to the top of the crater. It was a fast hike and would be hard with children under 12. Turns out we SHOULD then have also paid just to enter the trail (there is a little cabana and bathroom at the trail head), but no one was working that day to take money. I think that would have been $3-6 per person ... All told, for non- Salvadoran person: about 10-12 bucks.
