El Salvador, for its size, packs quite a bit of punch.
And while some of the neighboring Central American countries have well-founded infrastructure in place for tourism, this country mostly doesn’t. On the positive side, that makes it a place whose secrets you’re able to discover on your own.
For those who’ve procrastinated visiting this gem for all the wrong reasons – like, political unrest and crime – you don’t know what you’re missing out on. From serene beaches to overflowing bazaars, from dense forests to spouting volcanoes that will test your endurance levels at scaling them, from rustic cabins to five-star hotels, you can get everything you wish for here in this country. Yet, so few know about them beyond just its two-worded name.
If you’d like to take full advantage of what El Salvador has to offer you, then you’d need to give at least a week here. The country is tiny, more so when compared to Honduras at its north that’s roughly five times its size, so you can work with a condensed itinerary and still hit the major spots.
