The volcano of Santa Ana is climbable. This volcano is as known by Ilamatepec. It’s approximately 7760 feet above sea level and the view from the summit is fantastic.
My partner and I are in Santa Ana for another few days, possibly up to the 14th. If anybody is considering the walk let me know (via TA) when and we can hopefully assure a group large enough that we can have a guaranteed guided tour
The hike up the Santa Ana volcano (aka. Ilamatepec) makes for a nice day out from Santa Ana. Take the 7.30am bus no. 248 from La Vencedora bus station in Santa Ana, headed for Cerre Verde park, for 90 cents each. We arrived around 9.30am. Unfortunately the group walk does not start until 11am, so there is some time to... More
It is a great place for hiking, not difficult if you are in good shape, but sight all around is worth the effort. You can see the ocean, the Coatepeque lake, surrounding mountains and the crater.
Assuming you are in decent shape, the hike is not terribly difficult. I would rank it as a medium to slightly above medium difficulty in terms of exertion. There is approximately 3,000 feet of elevation gain, but almost all of it is quite gradual. In total they expect that it will take you 4 hours for the hike, though we... More

The milky green of the sulfurous pool in the crater was roiled by whitish gas or liquid bubbling up from the depths. But... More
Hello My Name Is Mac Bernal Tour Guide Of El Salvador And Central America Also I hike Almost All The Volcanoes In Central America But Nothing Like Hiking The Santa ana Volcanoe This one is The Best One With The Best View I Recomended.
Nice walk with great views of the surrounding area. The views of the volcano's geography and the steamy, sulphuric, green pool in the crater were cool!
It now costs $11.00 to hike the volcano. there is a $3.00 park admission fee, and $8.00 for the hike (guide, crossing private property fee and park use fee). Hike still worthwhile but a bit of shock for the extra fees that you kept having to pay. The cheapest part if the local bus from Santa Ana to the park--it... More
Be there a bit before 11am - the public bus from Santa Ana leaves around 7:30am and gets there around 10am. Note: that bus does not leave from the same bus terminal where all other buses in Santa Ana leave - within walking distance but not the same place. Driving up to Cerrro Verde park, you'll see nice views of... More
