What you can expect
Make a leg-pumping climb up the steep and rocky slopes of Izalco, an active volcano perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Learn why this eruptive giant is nicknamed the “Lighthouse of the Pacific”, enjoy sweeping views from its peak, and explore a bit of Cerro Verde National Park.
Catch a ride from your hotel and cruise to the entrance of Cerro Verde National Park, where you can lace up your hiking boots and join your guide for the winding trek to the top of Izalco. Along the way, listen to stories about the volcano's past eruptions, which were so constant that locals began referring to it as the “Lighthouse of the Pacific” for its never-ending plumes of smokes that could be seen far out at sea.
When you reach the top, take a breather and soak up far-reaching views out onto the Pacific Ocean. Snap photos of Cerro Verde National Park's untamed terrain, munch on tasty snacks and grab a bottle of cold water, and then head back down to end your active day with a ride back to your hotel.
