Parque Nacional El Boqueron, San Salvador

(4.6/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Please visit this park with my family, anchovy is a very nice place where you can enjoy nature with children walking trails in the Park, the view of the crater of the volcano is spectacular, the Park has parking for vehicles and is very safe

  • Volcano close to the walk step where stayed only 30 minutes by car. The area is beautiful full of nature and delicious climate since it is high to about 1850 meters above sea level. Worth a visit is very cheap $2 per foreigner, $1 national. There are few meters to the viewpoint of the crater (maybe 10 mins walking distance) is possible to hire a guide and get to the crater (hour and a half walking distance) with a degree of difficulty was special for adventurers and walkers. I liked it and I recommend it since it is close and moves very well

  • The attraction that is the view of the crater of the San Salvador volcano is seen in about 45 minutes. You have to walk and is a climb that would not be suitable for many older people or people with disabilities. Weekend is filled and at times hard to find parking. It is safe to go as a tourist.
