    Parque Nacional Cerro Verde

    April 23, 2017 in El Salvador

    As we arrived in the national park everyone was just starting to pack up & by 5 there were a few policemen about. Shame as they missed a truly spectacular sunset with volcanoes poking up through a thick layer of clouds.

    After a peaceful night it got really busy in the morning, and we joined the guided (guide & 2 armed policemen) hike up the Santa Ana volcano, along with at least 50 other people, but unfortunately without Maya.

    It was a very pleasant walk & we were relieved to find it much easier than some of the other volcanoes we've tackled, although still a good couple of hours to the top. The view down into the bubbling & smoking sulphuric crater lake was pretty amazing.

    After some improvised showers (I had to take the indoor one out after it was leaking) we feasted on pupuseas (thick tortillas stuffed with good things) and chips. Phil even managed to improvise a chip butty out of them! It then cleared out again and we had another quiet night huddled in the van watching a film.

    Volcan de Santa Ana

    July 6 in El Salvador

    Another volcano, yay!
    As a group, we decided to get a tour and go to Volcán de Santa Ana, just outside of Santa Ana, from El Tunco. I didn’t know too much about it, apart from the green sulphur pool on the top and a great view, as there were no clouds finally!
    A good little walk down from the car park, which could have been England from the trees n foliage. I turned my ankle over, which was a real ball ache, and meant I could surf on it. I still hiked the rest of the volcano, but knew it was going to stiffen up once we got back to the mini bus. It did, and I knew I’d have to find something else to do for the next week.Read more

    Santa Ana - the volcano!

    August 22, 2017 in El Salvador

    Got a ride with some Slovenian guys who live in New Zealand to hike up to Volcan Santa Ana. Unfortunately lots of clouds meant no great views on the way up but the clouds managed to clear for us to see into the crater lake full of boiling water, made green by the sulfur. Checked out the beautiful Lago de Coatepeque on the way back. Volcanoes certainly make for some stunning landscape!
