Devil's Door

A legendary mountain peak.

A mix of folklore, legend and landscape not far south of San Salvador, past the Balboa Park in the town of Panchimalco, the Puerta del Diablo is one of the most impressive spots in the country. Its main feature is a huge boulder split in two. According to legend, the devil was chased here after abducting the daughter of a colonist, and fell, causing the famous split (local guides will go into great detail). The view from up here is spectacular, and it's also a big destination for rock climbers and other adventure tourists. We'd also recommend stopping for a meal of local fare at one of the nearby towns such as Panchimalco.
