On our tour of San Salvador, we visited El Boqueron. The views of the crater were great and you also get great views of the city. Too bad it started to rain on us. Still worth the drive up.

You can park pretty high up the Santa Ana volcano and then take an easy hike up to the top to see the crater (unless it is raining, which oddly happened to us even though it was dry season). Apparently you can hike down the...More
