Parque Nacional El Boqueron is a small place, but the view is unique. It also offers a small museum where children can learn more about volcanos and about El Boqueron activity in the last century.

It's a nice place to see the crater of the volcano. It's not a tough walk or hike, in 10 minutes you're at the top looking into the crater. It's got a lot of steps.

We drove up the side of this volcano, stopping in a coffee shop with nice.views of San Salvador city and environs. The volcano itself has another smaller crater at the base, and apparently El Salvador has many volcanoes dotting the country.

I am not really sure you can get there by public transportation. A taxi might charge you at least USD 20.00 each way
