  • Is sale of the Hill green to them 11:00 am where is pays $1.00 and $3.00 per vehicle. They are approximately 6 km up to the crater and 6 km from return. Approximately 2 hours in each course and 20 min. maximum to rest up, hydrate and eat something. It is an adventure full of spectacular scenery to the coast of the Pacific and the surrounding cities to the volcanoes (Sonsonate, Izalco, Acajutla, etc.) One of the best rides I've ever had in my life.
