Description

A lovely national park that highlights the San Salvador Volcano and offers great views of it. Three Miradores and some trails available. It was $2USD for entrance and $1USD for parking. The drive was steep (uphill) and at times very narrow but doable with our 2WD. We enjoyed our time here.

Magnificent! The park entrance area is nice, but you can do two mega hikes here. One is around the rim of the whole crater, which we did with a man who was drinking a beer at the mirador when we got there! He was a Salvadoran American (didn't like the word guanaco haha), who was stoked to join us when we invited him. He turned out to be 64! Though spry, and when the trail became overgrown it was his motivation that kept us pushing on (All trails says to turn back here, not a bad idea!). It was about 5 miles and epic. Follow All trails or just head left when you get to the rim and at stay along the rim (at some point you have to duck the fence out of the national parks little strict area).

The other mega hike which we did not do is down to the picturesque dimple in the crater. we found the way down, follow the previous instructions and when you go below the tiendita with a little bridge, instead of going up after this point go down that trail!

Stay classy friends.
