Volcan Santa Ana is an active Volcano, its last eruption was in 2005. It was a big eruption, although not explosive, it threw lots of hot ash up to the air. The Volcano is also called Lamatemepec, which in indigenous language means "old man´s-mountain". The Volcan de Santa Ana is a stratovolcano, which means it has a conical shape created by several layers of hard lava. The Volcano has a crater of aprox 3 kms of circunference and 400mts deep. It is not possible to walk down to the lagoon inside the crater and it is not allowed to go around the crater. The hike is a little steep at some parts but it is relatively accesible. The terrain of the Volcano is partially covered under the Evergreen Forest, the remaining part is rock and volcanic material with no shade from the sun.
