Parque Nacional El Boqueron, San Salvador

4.6
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.

  • Beautiful well organized park. Great views of the volcano. Great well kept up trails. Good parking lots and well placed bathrooms. Well worth the visit for the views of the volcano.
  • Great spot for sightseeing one of many volcanoes in El Salvador. And also a great short hike up to the viewing area. Not an expensive entrance fee and $2 parking offered right at the entrance. Great spot for photos.
