Volcan San Salvador, San Salvador

4.8
#1 of 13 in Wildlife in El Salvador
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.

    A place where you can see the nature walking paths that must travel with shoes comfortable and casual clothes (not necessarily sports). Amazing view of the crater. During the tour there are resting places. The journey takes approximately 25 minutes. After the descent, there are sales of typical meals at very affordable prices.
