El Boqueron National Park and San Salvador City Tour
Reviewed 24 May 2013

The Salvador del Mundo monument is THE reference for giving addresses in the city, as it is located at the center of 3 very important city ways. The monument has been renovated, but in the process the plaza was covered entirely with marble floors, losing it's previous 'tropical with palmtrees' appeal (just as the city has lost it also). There are no parking spaces, and getting there on foot is a bit dangerous due to heavy and chaotic traffic. The area is safe, and the monument itself is very nice, but apart from it, there is nothing else to do at the plaza, and it doesn't even have enough grass areas for kids to play. Worth a visit for the monument as part of a tour of the city.

Tip: we were passing by to visit the financial area. There are some malls were you can find local coffee shops or even Starbucks.

Cons: chaotic traffic, drivers don't stop for pedestrians, lots of pollution.

Pros: icon of El Salvador and San Salvador, considered a symbol of hope and faith for the Salvadoran people, impressive, colorful (blue) globe.
