Must see this place if you are in San Salvador or around the area!
JoseE RivasIt is the ideal place to foreigners who visit the country, although they say open early really open at 8 am. They should have tariff differential as well as it is in other countries, since currently the general rate is for 3 dollars with the parking. This Park is a biological reserve declared well of State by General Maximiliano Hernández Martínez in the 30s years, on what was the eruption of the volcano of San Salvador in 1917.show original
