Park
“this is probably one of the biggest (and safe) parks in the country. Watch your belongings though and women do not go by yourselves. A lot of nature around…it is next to a major highway but if you go deep inside enough you may get a whole different sense of things. it's mostly walking/bike paths though (and not all of them are paved)”

“La Área natural protegida El Boquerón es un área protegida que se encuentra en la parte superior del volcán de San Salvador a 1800 metros 5.905 pies (1800 metros) sobre el nivel del mar, parte del país centroamericano de El Salvador. La atracción principal del parque es un cráter de 1.5 kilómetros de diámetro y 558 metros de profundidad. Además, hay un pequeño cráter en el cráter principal llamado "Boqueroncito" (en referencia al cráter Boquerón). El Boquerón tiene un clima fresco templado durante todo el año. El parque es el hogar de muchas especies de plantas identificadas como plantas ornamentales, tales como "Cartuchos", hortensias, begonias, entre otras. Hay vida silvestre, como armadillos, mapaches, venados, zorros, entre otros.1​ El parque cuenta con un centro de visitantes y rutas de excursión cortas por la ladera y a lo largo del borde del cráter. Se lo conoce por una importante erupción que se produjo aquí en el año 1917.”

Park
“A few minutes away in taxi or by car or bus will . I would suggest to get there in the afternoon. You can watch local people gathering at the park to take a cup of coffee. If you walk around you will find multiple pupuserias and handmade products. My favorite places to eat pupusas are "Senkali" for fancy and new flavor pupusas. If you like to taste something less touristy try "Pupuseria Iris". ”
