El Salvador Travel Information

El Salvador ('The Saviour') might be the smallest country in Central America, but it is well worth exploring. Newcomers are frequently bowled over by this stunning volcanic landscape, and quickly warm to the openness of its people.

El Salvador is breathtaking, with volcanoes and mountains offering "green" adventurers what they are looking for. Many of the environmentally oriented community-based organizations promote eco-tourism, and there are a number of beautiful and secluded beaches and forests scattered throughout the country. An already well-maintained and practically deserted national park is found in the west at Bosque El Imposible, also Montecristo Cloud Forest, and a quaint fishing village with incredible local hospitality and remote coconut islands in La Isla de Méndez.

Visits to the colonial towns of Apaneca, Juayua, Panchimalco, and Suchitoto as well as the Mayan sites of San Andrés, Joya de Cerén (The Pompeii of Central America and a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and Tazumal, whose main pyramid rises some 75 feet into the air, are as rewarding as any in Central America.

Souvenir hunters will find some of the best artesans in San Juan el Espino. The capital, San Salvador, is a cosmopolitan city with good restaurants highlighting the country's fresh seafood, as well as plenty of shopping, entertainment, and nightlife.
