Plan an amazing trip to El Salvador

El Salvador, the smallest Central American state, is surrounded by Honduras to the north and Guatemala to the west. Frequently underestimated, it is a surprising country of volcanoes, lakes, colonial towns and beaches along the Salvadorian coast which are renowned by surfers the world over. If you’re looking for natural open spaces, there is delightful trekking around lakes, rivers, waterfalls and forests, and El Salvador has more than 20 volcanoes, the highest reaching 2,730 metres altitude. You can discover Mayan culture at a number of archaeological sites, of which Joya de Ceren is a UNESCO world heritage site. The capital, San Salvador has monuments which bear witness to the country’s rich historic heritage, including the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and its museums dedicated to Mayan culture.
