Grand Tour of Central America
From Costa Rican tropical forests to Guatemala's Caribbean coast and the pyramids of Tikal
For the smallest country in Central America, El Salvador packs a big punch – it has 25 volcanoes, 14 lakes, three large cities and a history dating from pre-Columbian time. Still a relatively new travel destination, visitors can discover crowd-fee national parks, stunning landscapes, smoking volcanoes, crystalline lagoons and pristine cloud forests.
A visit to the country will take in Mayan archaeological remains, flower-filled villages, hot springs and colourful indigenous craft markets. San Salvador is the bustling capital, modern in many ways but boasting plenty of cultural institutions such as museums and theatres, monuments and outdoor markets. By way of contrast, rural Perquin is surrounded by coffee plantations and green pinegroves, but is also home to the Museum of the Revolution that ended in 1992.
