El Salvador is a small country nestled between Guatemala, Honduras and the Pacific Ocean. Whether you’ve come to relax with a book on the beach, explore nature routes past rainforests and waterfalls or visit the fascinating museums of the capital city, your time in El Salvador is sure to be memorable.
The capital of the country, San Salvador, has trendy nightspots and shopping markets where tourists will feel safe and welcome. During the day, visit Colonia Escalon for its variety of relaxing cafés. In the evening, head to Zona Rosa for vibrant nightlife and local restaurants. San Salvador also offers easy access to the beach where you can watch daring surfers riding the waves.
Delight in El Salvador’s incredible natural scenery at the Parque Nacional Los Volcanoes, a national park with three volcanoes and plenty of dense rainforests. Listen to the sounds of the woodpeckers, look for the dainty hummingbirds and tackle the hike up to the peaks of Izalco or Ilamatepec.
In western El Salvador, find the Ruta de las Flores, a beautiful route named for the wildflowers that bloom next to it. Follow the road through a series of picturesque villages and farms. Stop at Juayua for its popular food fair and to hear live music on its plaza. Ataco, a quiet village with cobblestone streets and brightly colored buildings, has a scenic lookout point with stunning views across the region.
Fly into San Salvador’s Aeropuerto Internacional Comalapa. Taxis are plentiful and one of the best options to ensure you get directly to your destination. Alternately, head to the Tica Bus Terminal to hop on a long-distance bus into town. While it is possible to rent a car, check ahead of time to ensure you’re traveling in safe areas and only during the daytime. Visit in December and January when the rainy season has ended and the landscape is a brilliant shade of green.
From gorgeous landscapes to thumping nightclubs to dreamy beaches, El Salvador is an incredible vacation waiting to happen.
