          Good experience
          The overall experience is consumed of driving to the Ataco. I love the culture displayed and the beauty of knowing everything is hand made with love. You can purchase anything at a well feasible price. In a town filled with arts, crafts, colors, churches and history give you so much appreciation to culture. The hot spring was hot and in some parts it was excruciating hot. The restaurant offer a variety of different food. The hot springs were filled with many bugs. They need to clean it. I didn’t really enjoy the hot springs because I wasn’t interested in floating with the bugs. I did enjoy the sauna room.

          Excellent hike with Francis
          Our tour with Francis was great. He was a knowledgeable and passionate guide. He drove safely, which hasn't been the case on other tours we have done. He timed our ascent so that we had a clear view of the crater when there was a break in the cloud cover. Would 100% recommend

          Challenging but worth it!
          It was a challenging but rewarding experience! Our tour guide Josue was so patient and very informative! Gave so much details at each stop and gave us the history behind the mountains here in El Salvador. You can tell he is proud of his country and had so much energy despite it being his fifth tour. Four hours For a total hike and I couldn’t believe it was his fifth one for the week. Jouse was kind enough to take pictures and videos of us without even having to ask. These pictures and videos will last a lifetime of memories!This amazing experience wouldn’t be awesome without the best tour guide. Jouse!

          Great day tour with our guide Francis to Santa Ana volcano and view of Coatepeque lake.
          Great tour overall. Hike was challenging but I love hiking so it was great. The views at the top are well worth it. Our guide Francis was very knowledge and shared great information on the history of El Salvador and the areas we were visiting. Lunch with a great view of the Coatepeque lake was perfect. Highly recommend your and guide, Francis.

          Amazing experience 😍
          It was such an amazing experience with an amazing tour guide! I highly recommend doing this tour! If possible and you get lucky hopefully your tour guide will be Josué romero. He’s excellent with what he does and made this tour as enjoyable as he could possibly make it! Thank you Josue you’re awesome and I hope to work with you again!

          10/10 great day!
          Josue was amazing!!! We knew this tour would be great but we had no idea on the amount of information that we would receive from him. We learned so much about this beautiful country. The tour was fun and we loved the restaurant after on the lake! I definitely would recommend this tour to anyone visiting. It doesn’t feel touristy at all, going hiking with a local. He’s also a great photographer 🙂

          Best Tour
          Josue was the best tour guide you can ask for. From being extremely knowledgeable about El Salvador to being your personal professional photographer. The views were amazing and so worth it. Highly recommend!

          Super Positive experience to women traveling alone
          Mother talking: My daughter was alone in San Salvador and decided to go in a tour with the Positive team. They were super friendly with her and thoughtful with me, the worried mom. I totally recommend their work for their professionalism and great services (thanks for taking care of her!)

          Hiking for the view
          This tour was amazing. A moderate hike that is done at the pace of your group and then you’re rewarded with the most fantastic views of the volcano. Francis was our guide and he was very patient and very knowledgeable. We had an incredible time.

          Cafe Albania + Hot Springs Tour
          Our tour guide was Josué Romero, and he was such a lovely guide!! Josué went above and beyond for our group of 3. He was extremely informative and was able to explain the history of El Salvador well. He is very attentive and also a great photographer, helping us capture the moments! He helped us out in so many ways. He truly made the experience worth every penny. I highly recommend the tour to anyone that’s on the fence about it

          Such a beautiful time in Santa Ana
          This trip was so beautiful! The hike was manageable and our tour guide, Gaby, told us so much about the natural beauty of El Salvador. I am so appreciative of Gaby and the other tour goers, it was an unforgettable experience.

        I never went to the Mayan ruins, surf city, the lakes were already mentioned in previous reviews. These locations were not listed separately. The Santa ana volcano is a must see location and you can take a tour and climb the side of the volcano. When you reach the summit, you get a breathtaking view of the iake inside of this active volcano. It takes around 2 hours each way for this hike and a tour guide is required for around $50 per person. You also have to a pay a small park fee, as well. This may seem like a lot of money, but can you imagine doing this hike on a daily basis as your job in all types of weather conditions.
        Lake Coatepeche is probably the most popular lake in all of ES. I could not believe all of the muliti million-dollar homes with their luxury boats on their private piers. There are a lot of nice restaurants to eat or small kiosk syle food locations, as well. I enjoyed going to this one restaurant that had a couple locations where you can swim within the complex. There is a kids swimming pool and a good place to take your family. You also must pull over on the side of the road and get a overall scenic photo of the entire lake at the summit. Once again, my favorite part of the visit was taking another scenic boat ride that only cost $25 for 2 people and I left at $6 tip here. The entire location is so beautiful, very clean, safe, inexpensive and a great place for some rest and relaxation.
