Make sure you get up to the top of Devil's Door. It has stunning views of the city and the mountains. You can even see to the beach

Puerta del Diablo is a must visit site if you live in El Salvador or are spending any significant time there. It's VERY Salvadoran, especially on Sunday nights. There are a few good hikes in the little hills by the parking lot, a tiny one...More
