This is one of the top tourist attractions in El Salvador.<br>Located in the biological corridor call Apaneca-Ilamatepec, Santa Ana volcano is considered one of the jewels of Central America. <br>If you are looking for the best things to do , We have designed this tour for you. <br>The walk takes approximately 2 hours to climb and another 2 hours to descend, this can vary according to the physical condition of the people. On top of the volcano you can see one of the best craters worldwide with an emerald green lagoon, <br><br>At the end of the adventure we drive to Coatepeque lake for a relaxing time and have lunch. <br>The tour is fantastic for nature lovers or adventurers.

I only once before stared down inside a volcano, which was on Easter Island. The hike up to the top is roughly 5 to 10 minutes, and gets steep in some spots. Once up there, there are multiple spots where you can marvel the views of inside the crater. This is a sweet spot to spend a few hours!

We visited this place as part of a guided tour. Nice to hide in the shadows of the park trees on a hot sunny day :) I recommend this attraction!

Visited El Boqueron early this month while vacationing in El Salvador with my family. This is a low-key high impact hike and perfect for amateurs. A great place to go to when you want to get out of the city and experience a quick change of air. You’ll need a few hours in your schedule to travel there and have enough time to enjoy the three visita points and eat the local fruit sold by the sweetest ladies. My family, and I drove our rental car there, and the drive is not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, my husband is from El Salvador and an excellent driver. We parked in a parking lot across from the park for a small fee and we met a sweet boy that became our tour guide and shared interesting information on our walk. We paid him $2 at our departure.

El Boqueron is a relatively short drive from San Salvador and you can be taken to within a relatively short distance of the summit. It takes a normal person about ten minutes to walk the track to the top. There is a track that once used to lead a long way around the rim and down to the bottom of the crater but this is no longer maintained and specifically advised against using. Once at the summit, there are four viewing points along about a fifty metre section of the rim. There is also a small information centre next to the car park and a wonderful view back across San Salvador and Lake Ilopango to the volcano of San Vicente. Slightly further down the hillside there are a couple of restaurants which have even clearer views than from the top.
