Uncover the spectacular beauty and rich culture of El Salvador
Sitting quietly nudged in between Guatemala and Honduras, El Salvador is often bypassed by travellers focused on getting from one big-name Central American attraction to the next. That's their loss. Bold but unassuming, feisty yet open-armed, El Salvador welcomes the intrepid traveller with plenty of offerings. Journey from the surf hub of El Tunco through the lush nature reserves near Ahuachapan and along the Ruta de las Flores to the whitewashed village of Suchitoto before finishing up in the lively Guatemalan capital of Antigua. This trip is the perfect introduction to your next favourite country.

Our El Salvador Explorer trips score an average of 4.59 out of 5 based on 17 reviews in the last year.
Friendly, informal but basic trips that include just enough tours and give the traveller plenty of options to choose what they wish to do and see, but still arrange these with local companies they have used previously.

One of my top trips! I went in mid-May, which is supposed to be the start of the rainy season, but it only rained during the day once. It was nice to have less tourists around and interact more with the locals. There are so many things to do in these beautiful areas. I will definitely go back.
