El Salvador

Tours in El Salvador

Diminutive El Salvador demands a second glance. It may have been in the headlines for the wrong reasons, but if you’re prepared to look past the bad press you’ll find an absolute gem of a country crouched between some of South America’s biggest players. Tourism is on the rise as this optimistic nation turns its face towards a brighter future.

El Salvador’s natural splendour is undeniable. Shaped by volcanic rumblings, this is a fertile landscapes of dense tropical greenery, black sand beaches where surfers play and vast coffee plantations on cloud-cloaked hillsides. Here you’ll find Mayan ruins (minus the day trippers frequently spotted in Mexico’s best-known spots) and a huge diversity of bird life – there are 17 varieties of hummingbird to be found in the Parque Nacional de los Volcanes alone.
