Izalco is one of the youngest volcanoes in the world (and still active). Reaching its crater is a rewarding but challenging experience! Be prepared to walk on steep slopes, lush cloud forests, uneven ground and (when Mother Nature's in the mood) stunning views. Called "The Lighthouse of the Pacific" by ancient sailors, this young fella was in a constant eruption since late 1700s, spewing lava flows and debris until it reached an elevation of near 2000 m (6400+ ft). Near the crater you can still see fumaroles and, from the top, the solidified lava fields spewed during recent eruptions. As well the steep slopes of Cerro Verde waiting for us again. After getting back to Cerro Verde’s Visitors Center you have been made two volcanoes in one day and can proudly say VENI, VIDI, VICI. NOTE: this is a challenging hike, proper gear required for safety. Hiking boots/shoes, hydration, sun/rain protection and a good physical shape is a must. Trekking poles highly recommended.

The Hidden Waterfalls Tour has this name for a good reason. An experience that is truly off the beaten track, we estimate that less than 300 travelers have ever visited this undiscovered part of El Salvador. Your tour guide will be clearing a path with his machete as he/she stops to teach you about the medicinal and edible plants that the local people still use to this day. Then we will arrive at the first of multiple waterfall jumps and naturally carved rockslides for you to enjoy. This tour has something for everyone and should be the number 1 thing on your itinerary when visiting El Salvador.

    This was a GREAT tour! My best friend and I spent 3 days in El Salvador over a holiday weekend and wanted to see as much as we could while we were there. Our first night, our plans for Saturday fell through. Literally less than 12 hours before we were supposed to be picked up. Not only was I able to book with EC, but they responded on WhatsApp to confirm within an hour. Excellent and fast customer service.
    Ricardo was our guide and he was excellent. Funny guy, super knowledgeable, told us about the history as well as general life and culture in El Salvador. The ruins were incredible and we learned so much! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the volcano because of weather (it was so foggy!) but we still had a great time.
    We did another EC tour the next day and that was also great. I recommend this company for tours, and I really enjoyed Ricardo as our guide.

    During our stay in El Salvador, we wanted to explore other parts of the country and Tunco Life was recommended. In the end, our experience was more than we could have hoped for. We were picked up from where we were staying, driven to the volcano in comfort, and provided with all the interesting facts about the hike. Salva - our guide - took us to the top of the volcano, told us about its history, and simply made our experience more authentic and fun. After a 3 hour hike we went to the local restaurant for pupusas. I can't wait to come back and explore the rest of the country with Salva and the rest of the team. Thank you so much! <3

    Our tour guide Gerry(for short) was just so knowledgeable not only did he provide information place as visited on the tour, but also things that we were curious about. Because it was private we were able to go at our own pace. He made our experience feel special left us with a great understanding of El Salvadorian culture, history and its people. 10/10 must do! The meal we had at the Lake Coatepeque delivered on flavor and that watermelon smoothie… just get it, you won’t be disappointed! Erick the tour rep from Papagayo Adventures, was recommended by the Hyatt Centric Staff, he was the utmost professional and made everything easy and accommodated us, at the last minute for two tours. Highly recommended hitting them up when you get to San Salvador or before you get there to get things set it!! 10/10 service!
