El Salvador holidays
There are plenty of things to do in El Salvador, a lesser-visited country compared to its neighbours.
Explore the charming colonial town of Suchitoto, with its beautiful architecture, cobbled streets and art galleries and take a boat trip on the nearby lake. Visit a coffee plantation, learn about the history of the civil war, or explore the volcanoes, crater lakes, mountain national parks or Pacific coastline.
Travel along the Route of the Flowers, a picturesque trail through floral mountain scenery, to visit small towns renowned for their handicrafts. Visit archaeological gems such as San Andrés, Tazumal and Unesco world heritage site Joya de Cerén, the America’s Pompeii. Finally, stop over in the capital of San Salvador, with its palpable atmosphere and open-hearted people.
