The hike up to the top is not that hard, and the view down the volcano makes it worth it. Take your time going up, since you may catch some bird watching on the way. And if you do it at sunset like I did, you get an amazing view.

We did this hike with two children but it was well worth it. The vegetation was lush and colorful and the crater was beautiful

Great after a exhaustive hike. Big time worth it once you get to the top. Much easier on the way down.

The boqueron is one of this places that in El Salvador are developing as a touristic side and it is worth it. It is not too far from the city. The weather there is really nice, you might need a jacket. There is a nice trail from the base of the mountain to the top. It might take 40 minutes... More

This site provides easy access to the top of the volcano, providing great views into the crater. My young children found it very exciting.
