Trip Planner: Central America / El Salvador / Ahuachapan Department / Ahuachapan / El Imposible National Park
Hikers of all abilities can explore El Imposible National Park , home to some of El Salvador's last old-growth rain forest and several endangered plant and animal species. The highland sector preserves narrow coastal fringe, including sand beaches, mangrove forests, alluvial plains, and volcanic highlands. It sits on Apaneca Ilamatepec Mountain, with an altitude between 300 m (985 ft) and 1,450 m (4,758 ft) above sea level, and includes eight rivers. The park offers several walking paths, ranging from highly demanding to easy. Adrenaline-junkies eager to dive can find a trail leading to seven waterfalls 6 to 12 m (20 to 40 ft) in height. A few tour companies organize excursions, but if you go there by car It is recommended to hire a local guide and to tip them. In 1992, UNESCO entered the park on its World Heritage Tentative List.
