Diving in the volcanic crater of Lake Ilopango. located just 16 kilometers from the city of San Salvador.
Lake Ilopango is a unique experience with its extraordinary forms and cliffs of volcanic stones.
Underwater hot water springs and many more diving sites.
if you can imagine to dive into an active crater, dive into the boilers, watch the volcanic activity!
There are very few places in the world where you can dive into active volcanoes. this is one off them!
Lake Ilopango measures 8 x 11 km, has an area of 72 km² and a depth of 230 m.
Lake Ilopango is the largest lake in El Salvador. It was formed by a volcanic eruption in the year 240 AD that was accompanied by a huge explosion. One of the greatest in earth’s history and even greater than Krakatoa. Another volcanic eruption in the 19th century was responsible for creating the large volcanic island in the center of the lake. Lake Ilopango is because of its volcanic origins, very pronounced and rocky creating the perfect environment for some interesting wall and cliff diving. Fortunately, the temperature is a minimum of 26 C (77 F) and this makes for pleasant diving no matter what time of year it might be.
we want you to enjoy the beautiful underwater world. In our opinion that is best with small groups so you see more (and less fins)
why are divers always going to the same location.. we want to explore our goal is to change de dive locations every week.
Divers have more fun then non-divers, and we explain why. There are many reasons that inspire people to become scuba divers. When you become a scuba diver, many people will start seeing changes in their lives.
