Volcano Nature / Park
Take the memorable drive and scenic hike to the crater of Volcan San Salvador. Stop at the museum before the hike itself for an interesting lesson into the incredible force of nature that looms over the city. The hike gets steep at stages, but once you reach the top, you can enjoy epic views from one of the several viewing stations. Bring plenty of water, sturdy shoes, and consider taking supplies for a picnic at the top. The trip shouldn’t take more than 3 hours.
