Best of El Salvador

From £870 for 8 days
Trip Overview

Good things come in small packages, and nowhere more than El Salvador. Sitting quietly nestled in between Guatemala and Honduras, El Salvador’s epic volcanoes, misty cloud forests, ancient relics and quiet colonial towns will capture your imagination – while the undulating waves that roll along the surf coast will unleash your inner grommet. Immerse yourself in the handsome capital of San Salvador, meander through the wildflowers that line the Ruta de las flores, explore the lush nature reserves of Ahuachapan and wander through the whitewashed village of Suchitoto – then spend your last few days swinging in a hammock by the beach in El Tunco. This trip is the perfect introduction to your next favourite country.

•   Relax on a scenic drive along the beautiful Ruta de las Flores, a renowned route that winds through flourishing wildflowers, colonial villages and lush countryside.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to San Salvador! As the capital city of El Salvador, San Salvador isn’t just the centre of the country in a political, cultural and financial sense, it’s also surprisingly pretty; trees dot the streets next to drastically different buildings, rebuilt after historic earthquakes rocked the city to the core. This hasn’t stopped San Salvador from maintaining an excellent selection of museums, bars and marketplaces. If you arrive early, why not visit Jardin Botanico La Laguna – a botanical garden that’s home to a beautiful display of El Salvadorian flora and fauna, which flourishes from the soil of a what was once a flooded volcanic crater! Or visit Iglesia El Rosario, a beautiful church with a rainbow arch of multi-coloured windows.
