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.

  • Path with rails. Crater is intense. Easy to get to by public transportation. Driver will tell you where to get off 
  • My guide was Mac Bernal and the experience apart from being single was both professionally as outstanding...

  • Access to the Park El Boquerón is well signposted. Arriving at the place I have to pay for the tour, but the prices are practically symbolic. Once there through trails that will have armed stairs that allow ascend to different viewing platforms to view the crater of the volcano. The view is wonderful and amazing. If you go up on a day with misting clouds can be seen inside the mouth. To download, you can choose to go to different bars and restaurants located on the slopes of the volcano.
