Parque Nacional El Boqueron, San Salvador

4.6
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.

  • El Boquerón National Park, is located fifteen minutes from plaza Merliot, good Street and don't need a 4 x 4. Access to the Park is easy, it has ample parking, good signage to scroll all over the place, the entrance is paid (tiered pricing if you're national, foreign, people of the third age and childhood); It has a small interactive museum that provides much information about the place. Highly recommended... do not forget to carry coat as low temperature in the afternoon.

  • An active volcano with the most incredible views. Will be walking, which seems more upwards than down, and a small museum, giving a brief description of the history of the area. Foreigners will pay TWICE as much as the locals when visiting, which is an astounding $2..(the entire country uses American currency ) A definite must see if in this country.
  • Wonderful views, good security, no liter, beautiful flowers and nice museum.
  • Great little hike. Lots of local restaurants nearby
  • Hiking is good, view is amazing and very clean restrooms, restaurants are next door, with delicious food.
  • They allowed no service dogs, we had all papers for the dog- in english and spanish The man at the entrance very unfriendly and didnt allowed us to speak with the manager
