Must see when visiting El Salvador
Nov 2021
Josué was a really great guide! We took a small bus to the foot of the volcano and then climbed it up. On the way up, you had some great chances to take some nice photos.

After vising the volcano, we had lunch at a restaurant with a great view on the Lake Coatepeque.

Santa Ana is a must see location when visiting El Salvador and this tour was really nice one!

Great Trekking Day!
Nov 2021
I had a great tour with Dionisio as my guide. Pick up was prompt at 6am and we had such a fun day. The lunch at the lake was perfect after the trek. The restaurant had a great selection and the view was terrific! Leading up to the tour Francis was communicative and helpful. I would use this company again.

Book it!
What a lovely time! Dionisio was our guide and made sure we had a great time. The hike was not the easiest or hardest hike, but had the best views! Francis was the person who answered all of my questions prior. He was a fast responder and was wonderful. If you want to hike a volcano, this is the best option!

Most thoughtful guides in El Salvador!
Jul 2021
Francis and his team of guides are superb. We arranged a tour to hike the Santa Ana volcano on a Wednesday this past July. We were honestly some of the slowest people that day and our guide was patient all throughout. He waited for us and didn't discourage us at all. He was also informative and didn't get annoyed with all the questions I had. I always have a lot of questions!
I would recommend this tour to beginners, and advanced hikers alike but I ESPECIALLY encourage first time hikers to book with El Salvador Positive Tours. They will be patient with you unlike other tours I have heard of. They also know a lot about the flora and fauna of the area so you will learn a lot even if you're out of breath.

Awesome experience
Mar 2020
Just got back from awesome hike. It is challenging and with Francisco as the guide very informative and fun. Once we climbed to the top then we were off to the lake for lunch, beer, and music. Would highly recommend because how often do you get the opportunity to see a Val an on up close.

Amazing hike
Mar 2020 • Friends
We booked a hiking tour to the Santa Ana volcano and lunch at Lake Coatepeque after. Herbert came to pick us up at around 7:10am and was early, so he kindly waited for us to have breakfast before we started our drive to the volcano. On the way there, Herbert shared a lot of interesting information about his country and the volcanoes. When we got to the volcano, unfortunately, the weather was too bad to climb up. The park rangers only opened the third viewpoint and allowed tourists up as far as that. Herbert was great with offering alternatives, and suggested that we either climb the Cerro Verde and Izalco or drive through the Ruta des Florès. We decided to go with the hike, and he kindly arranged for us to head up the other two volcanoes instead. Herbert was enthusiastic and a fantastic hiking partner. He waited for us when we slowed down and he would let us walk ahead at times. He also took lots of beautiful photos for us! After the hike, he drove us to the lake where we had lunch at a restaurant he recommended by the lake. Food was fantastic! Would definitely recommend this tour, and ask for Herbert as your guide!!
