Day Trip: San Salvador Volcano & Restaurant La Pupusa Loka

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you enjoyed reading about the amazing category 1 SPG hotel (3,000 or 4,000 SPG points per night) in San Salvador: Sheraton Presidente San Salvador Hotel.  When we were not eating in the Sheraton club lounge or eating breakfast in the restaurant, we went on a day trip to a local volcano and pupusa restaurant.  The whole tour with admission to the volcano and transportation cost $40 per person.  Lunch was not included, but only cost me ~$7.  We started the tour at our hotel, picked up another person at a nearby hotel, and then drove to the volcano (~30 minute drive).  The volcano is in Parque El Boqueron.  Here is a beautiful painting on a brick wall.
