Lake Ilopango

This crater lake nestled in a scenic volcanic caldera is the second largest lake in the country and a famed destination for sci-fi loving locals and travelers seeking to spot much-storied UFOs. And while visitors may have to navigate the local bus system to get here, travelers agree it’s a destination that’s well worth the adventure—even if you don’t spot an extraterrestrial. 

Travelers can take a dip in the refreshing crater lake or hike to the top of a nearby lighthouse for picturesque views of the breathtaking landscape El Salvadore has become known for. Small cafes selling home cooked, local food provide the perfect meal after a day outdoors and camp sites, soccer fields, row boats and plenty of public restrooms make a day at Lake Ilopango a relaxing escape from urban life. 

Practical Info

Travelers should note that local women swim in clothing rather than suits, so a two-piece number may be offensive to locals. Visitors say homemade chorizo from the nearby town of Cojutepeque is worth a stop. Because surrounding areas flood during rainy season, it’s best to visit between December and May.
