Parque Nacional El Boqueron, San Salvador
(4.6/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • It is really the only thing worth knowing in San Salvador, one can last hours walking, when one gets to the end there is a suspension bridge that connects to a store, where you can rest after a long walk. It is worth to go.
