They had to cancel my reservation for the tour the morning of, so I wasn’t able to go. I can’t comment on the tour itself. I took a taxi to the Cerro Verde anyway, but wasn’t able to climb to the top due to getting there too late. Just bad luck.
Amazing experience !

Amazing experience, my guide was Jose. He was very friendly and funny. Very accommodating when I needed to take breaks on the hike. Also very knowledgeable about the Santa Ana volcano and El Salvador I’m general. Would highly recommend as a solo traveller.
