Depart from your San Salvador hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and admire the splendid scenery surrounding Boqueron, a magnificent volcano whose name translates as Big Mouth in Spanish. Listen as your guide offers insight into the colossal natural features of the landmark and then embark on a short hike through the dense, forested trails of El Boquerón National Park.
Allow your guide to direct your attention to the intriguing flora and fauna that peppers the park, as you scour the landscape for roaming raccoons, deer and armadillo. Admire exotic flowers thriving in their natural habitat and then arrive at the Black Lake for sweeping vistas of hardened molten lava that erupted from the Big Mouth volcano. Capture fantastic photographs of this natural wonder before returning to your spacious vehicle.
Next, head to the atmospheric ruins of Joya de Cerén, an ancient archeological site that dates back to the 6th century. Gain fascinating insight into the former inhabitants of the site and delve into the devastating disaster that ended the reign of the settlement. Visit beautifully preserved workshops, homes and storehouses as you explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site with your guide, and then return to your San Salvador hotel after 4 hours of enriching exploration.
