The glassy-clear crater lake of Coatepeque

sunset over lago coatepequeAs I was slowly coming to find out, tourists are quite scarce in El Salvador and my visit to Lago de Coatepeque was no exception (I was the only one at the guest house I camped at there, and I saw no one else in San Diego and one other tourist in San Salvador). I ended up putting my tent at the end of the guesthouse's dock since camping was half the price of the dorm room, keeping it secure on the legs of a table and chair and yanking a few pads from the couch in the guest house's TV room to sleep on in the tent. Swimming the the perfectly clear water of the lake

was a nice treat after a long bus ride in the midday heat, and afterwards I found myself just staring in to the sunset over the lake with a nearby mariachi-ish band unknowingly serenading me while trying to make tips in a nearby restaurant. Eventually I snapped out of it, and ended up taking a pile of pictures, some of my favorites I have below.
