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.

  • A more cool Curti has a small museum where it tells the history of the volcano, some souvenir chapel shops. Clean park and with well marked trails. And short but worth it when we were the value was $3 person.

  • The best!. It is simply awesome, nature, trees, cold weather, amazing views...... I loved it so much........
  • Very nice small park to enjoy for a few hours. The view of the crater is awesome, entrance is like $1, lots of fruit stands to eat inside and outside. Clean bathrooms on the outside of the park. Parking gets full quick so be ready to use your parking skills on the hill if necessary. There are kids inside who will tell you the story of the crater for a tip, please do so, they are smart kids who need the help.
