Parque Nacional El Boqueron, San Salvador
(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Explore the rich plant life at Parque Nacional El Boqueron, set on top of the massive San Salvador Volcano. Choose from one of the well-marked hiking trails, some more challenging than others, and trek to the park's main attraction, the Boqueron crater. Admire the vast crater, 5 km (3 mi) in diameter, from picturesque viewpoints. See the much smaller crater within the large one, affectionately nicknamed "Boqueroncito." The interesting scenery here is the result of a 1917 volcanic eruption.

  • Well it's a wonderful magical place, we find the cherry of the volcano to get here to Boquerón need a car, parking is ugly because some people found their cars on the road that is very narrow, but so they know the ahy mountain to the Summit a huge parking lot where you can get your car without any problem de ahy entry costs $1 and you have to climb ahy walking 15 minutes walk between nature to reach the hole of the volcano, who wants to can lower to the bark but is a journey of 2 hours lowering and rising 3, then if you want to do this you have to get up early so that it reaches you the time outside of the parking lot is a small museum that tells you what happened with the volcano, it is interesting, you will also find posts sales of fruits of the forest, pupusas, drinks. So very recommended this plan. You should go with comfortable shoes and clothes to climb the volcano.

  • Small, well guarded National Park not far from the Centre of San Salvador. Man climbs through the forest to the rim of the crater and get spectacular views down to the "boqueron". Also the view is wonderful from here to San Salvador down. Moreover, it is something "fresher", so enjoyable due to the height on especially hot days!
