El Salvador is worth exploring for its breathtaking nature alone, and what better place to start your adventure than its national parks? This Central American country has quite a few in store, and here are three you shouldn’t miss for the world.

Cerro Verde National Park

If you can only visit one national park during your visit to El Salvador, make it this one. Also known by the name Los Volcanes National Park, this park is home to some of the most impressive volcanic peaks in the entire country, including Cerro Verde, Izalco, and Santa Ana.

El Boqueron National Park

Volcanoes are scattered all across El Salvador, and if you’re looking for a national park where you can escape them, it’s not going to be this one. El Boqueron is located on top of San Salvador volcano and it offers hikes to the rim of the El Boquerón crater.

El Imposible National Park

If you want to take a break from exploring the volcanoes, this national park is just the place for you. It’s also popular with passionate hikers, but it’s best known for its lush tropical forests, diverse plant and animal life, and Pacific Ocean views from its highest points.
