Lake Coatepeque is a large crater lake surrounded by wooded hills in western El Salvador.

 Nearby El Congo is its gateway village. In the lake’s southwest corner is Teopán Island, once a sacred site for the ancient Maya. Farther southwest, the Cerro Verde National Park is crossed by a network of trails. Its towering Santa Ana Volcano and the conical Izalco Volcano offer panoramic views over the lake.
