  • The Botanical Garden is an oasis in the midst of so much industrial pollution, which is located a few minutes from the heart of the city. In it you can see a great variety of flora which is ideal to relax and keep in contact with nature. You pay a small contribution, which I think is a dollar, but it really worth it to enjoy one of the lungs of the city.

  • A spectacular botanical garden. The founder was a German living in El Salvador who traveled much and brought many plants, trees and flowers from all over the world. The place is in an extinct volcano lagoon and land is very fertile, it helps that all the vegetation is so lush. There is a small cafeteria, fountains, trails by ferns, orchids and exotic species. Only a part of the place is open to the public, the rest is nature reserve. It is very nice and clean, it contrasts with the horrible factories around.

  • San between salvador and santa tecla, 10 minutes from the capital, this place is sitting at the base of an ancient crater that over I had a small lake. Dried ´ppero owners, aleanas families and Swiss who lived long ago in the country, always cultivated varieties of exotic flowers, seeds, pots, baskets, etc and it was always proud tebner this place adoonde taught trees shrubs and flowers to the general public, until he settled as a nursery where sold much of the best in flora... The penalty is worth......
