So anyone can drive themselves to the park entrance and then wait to join the main group to hike up Santa Ana which leaves around 11am? I'm planning to rent a car while I'm in El Salvador but I hadn't seen many posts from people driving themselves to make this hike, only taking buses from the town of Santa Ana.

Yes! We drove ourselves. I would get there around 10:45. I do hear the bus is cheap, but driving was no problem.
hey guys! how much was it in total for the tour? and where did you go to start the trip at 11:am?

Sorry for the delay in responding... $3.00 person in the car to drive in the gate, $1.00 at same entrance to park. In the parking lot we got the overview of the hike from the tourist police of which the Maine theme was: it's challenging and bring water . Then we each gave our donation to the tour guide who, along with the tourist police will accompany us and answer questions. Then we turned around, got back in car, parked at El Tibet hotel (paid $2 to park there). El Tibet is down the hill from Cerro Verde Park and near the entrance to the hike starting point. Then we hiked from there up to the top of the crater. It was a fast hike and would be hard with children under 12. Turns out we SHOULD then have also paid just to enter the trail (there is a little cabana and bathroom at the trail head), but no one was working that day to take money. I think that would have been $3-6 per person ... All told, for non- Salvadoran person: about 10-12 bucks.
Hello, Can someone recommend a nice hotel near the park? I will be there for only a night and my backpacking days are over.... and so prefer something clean, quiet and comfortable (ok if it is a bit on the pricey side). I speak fluent Spanish and so language is not a problem. Thank you!
