HIKE AN ACTIVE VOLCANO

A guided hike takes approximately 1.5 hours to ascend the summit and an hour to return to camp. Leave from Mizata at 9 am and return around 4 pm. This adventure can be paired with an additional morning and afternoon activity.
EXPLORE TAMANIQUE WATERFALLS
The Colonial Era Tamanique Village sits at 600 meters above sea level. Once arriving in town our guide will take you on a 30-minute hike into the jungle until arriving at the cascading waterfalls of Tamanique. There are three main waterfalls that are connected through a series of trails. Filled with adventure – swim, boulder, cliff jump or just relax and enjoy the views. This is a half-day adventure that can easily be paired with a morning surf session or horseback riding.
DISCOVER THE MAYAN RUINS
Joya De Ceren – An UNESCO World Heritage site, often compared to Pompei, in Italy, is a unique archeological gem. The unearthed ancient village is an unbelievable portal into a Mayan farming village. Discover the remains of 70 buildings and artifacts from 200AD. Can be paired morning and afternoon activities.
Tazumal – Spanning 6 square miles, Tazumal consists of pyramids, tombs, workshops and a complex drainage system that was occupied for nearly a 1,000 years, before being abandoned sometime around 1200AD. Can be paired morning and afternoon activities.
RUTA DE LAS FLORES
Hidden along the Apaneca hills, Ruta de las Flores is a group of colonial mountainside villages that all offer indigenous charm, night markets, traditional restaurants and artisan crafts. The climate of this area is colder than anywhere else in the country – allowing the perfect conditions for the cultivation of coffee. Visit the stunning local markets, try a handful of delicious restaurants, learn about El Salvador’s history and taste organically grown, local coffee as you make your way through Ruta de las Flores.
