Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful view at dawn sun rises at horizon around 5 am , we rented a water front house and enjoyed the waking every day with lots of birds singing, sadly there was a lot of algae due to the contamination of the lake I hope the government does something about it or the lake will die.

After hiking Volcan Santa Ana in the Cerro Verde National Park, we stopped at one of the many open air restaurant/grills that line this beautiful lake. Even on a cloudy day with the distant mountains and volcanoes obscured, it was still a spectacular sight. Would love to return in the dry season and get out on the lake.

Growing up I had always heard of going to the lago, but never got the chance! On our visit back to the country, we made sure to stop by! My! I now know what everyone was talking about! It is a beautiful place. It is breathtaking natural beauty! Definitely a must if you are visiting! Lots of activities to do!

The lake is surprisingly large for a lake in a sunken volcano. There are many houses for rent on the lake and taking a boat ride or kayaking around it is amazing. Very clear waters and it is quite calm. Most of the houses on the lake have Mueles (covered docks over the water) where people relax at. It is unique to see. It isn't really a place to go and explore the views - the lake is best taken in by actually staying there. Although there is a public park at the very end of the road.

Follow the trail for a walk inside the crater with stunning views of the lake. The forest trail provides a great opportunity to view the bird life and animals that live in the forest. Do not forget your binoculars!

We visited this lake and took a boat ride around the lake the last week of January 2019. It is a beautiful lake, the weather was near perfect!
There is a pool area close to the lake that our children spent time swimming. If you are able to get in a boat there are hot springs at one point so hot that you can't get in the water!

Located very close to San Salvador, Coatepeque Lake is a must visit meanwhile in El Salvador. We spent the day at Mikiterio, a family owned bed and breakfast located just in front of the lake. The grounds are perfectly manicured and you have 180 degrees view of the lake.
