What To Expect
Upon your arrival, you will be transferred from the International Airport of Comalapa to San Salvador City, situated about 39 kilometers and 35 minutes away. A representative from our company will welcome and assist you. In the evening, you can take an optional night tour that takes you to the restaurant area and nightlife of San Salvador.
You will be taken to the imposing Volcano of San Salvador, where you will visit the crater known as Boquerón. You can enjoy a refreshing ecotouristic walk through the nature and trails. The next stop is the Black Sea (an area covered by lava, now volcanic rock, thrown out by el Boquerón) and venture in an exciting journey through the coffee plantations, the flora and fauna of the volcano in a safe and fun canopy tour. You can see the bird Torogoz, El Salvador's national bird, squirrels, and other animals. The majestic pines, oaks and different varieties of trees will amaze you!
Later, you will be brought to the Pompeii of America, the archaeological site Joya de Cerén, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1993. Joya de Cerén was covered by the explosion of the Loma Caldera volcano. This explosion preserved the remains of the pre-Hispanic civilization for hundreds of years. You will also be taken to visit the "Ruinas de San Andrés,"
You will have time for lunch in the city of Santa Ana and a panoramic tour of the historic center of the city, which takes you to the Gothic Cathedral and the City Theater. You will be taken back to San Salvador and have the rest of the evening free. You can take an optional disco tour that takes you to the bar and disco district of San Salvador, including Multiplaza, La Gran Via y Zona Rosa.
You will go on an exciting adventure to the top of the Ilamatepec Volcano, a real scenic gem. It's the highest and largest of the coastal mountain range, with altitudes of 2365 meters above sea level. The road is narrow and difficult to traverse, so there will be a number of resting points. As you reach upper altitudes, the winds will be much stronger and you will be enveloped in clouds. Soon, you will arrive at the top. The crater has an emerald-green lagoon in its interior and a small waterfall of crystalline water. From this point, you will have an amazing view of the Coatepeque Lake, Izalco Volcano, the Cerro Verde Volcano and the Pacific Ocean. The view is just impressive!
After breakfast, you will head to the beautiful city of Suchitoto ("Place of Birds and Flowers") in Nahuatl. The city of Suchitoto offers the essence of the old colonial architecture. Walk down its beautiful cobbled paths, explore its art galleries, the Ruins' Theater, the House of Crafts and the Santa Lucia Church, which was built in 1853 and is one of the main attractions of the city.
You will then be taken to the Lake Suchitlán, a 135 square kilometer artificial lake with the largest area of water in the country. You will go on a kayak tour, visiting the Island of the Birds and kayaking through the fauna and flora of the area. You will then be transferred back to San Salvador.
Three hours before your flight departs, you will be taken to the Handicraft Market of San Salvador to make the last shopping trip of the voyage. Services will end after you are transferred to the airport of El Salvador. Have a nice trip!
