Lunch at crater lake.

Lunch at Coatepeque.

Lake Coatepeque (Lago de Coatepeque) is a large crater lake in the east part of the Coatepeque Caldera, not far from Santa Ana, El Salvador. There are hot springs near the lake margins. At 26 square kilometers (10 sq mi), it is one of the largest lakes in El Salvador. In the lake is the island of Teopan, which was a Mayan site of some importance.

Stopping in at a small hotel restaurant for lunch, we found the views fantastic. It’s not far off the Pan American Highway. Afterwards we headed to Santa Ana for a night before crossing the border back over into Guatemala.
