HIGHLIGHTS Download trip brochure
  • Indulge in a lunch time feast at Juayua’s phenomenal Feria Gastronomica – this small town hosts its famous food festival every weekend, showcasing sweets, treats and local delicacies.
  • 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.
  • Uncover the ancient ruins of Joya de Ceren, known as the Pompeii of the Americas – a wonderfully preserved Maya village that was buried under volcanic ashfall around AD600.
  • Enjoy a free day to explore the surrounding beauty of Ahuachapan: from the shimmering rivers and pristine forest of El Imposible National Park, to the impressive archaeological Maya ruins of Tazumal.
Start in San Salvador and end in El Tunco, the Best Of El Salvador tour is a guided explorer trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Suchitoto, El Tunco and Ahuachapan in El Salvador. Best Of El Salvador is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

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.

Is this trip right for you:
  • There’s so much to do in Ahuachapan, Suchitoto and El Tunco that we thought we’d give you the opportunity to explore at your own pace. While there are no included activities planned for your time here, there are plenty of optional activities to take part in during your stay.
  • The tropical climate of Central America means conditions can be really hot and humid. It makes the beers even more refreshing but consider what time of the year you wish to travel in if you’re easily affected by weather. Although our private vehicles do have air conditioning, it has to work pretty hard to keep a full group cool.
  • If you wish to spend more time in San Salvador or El Tunco, we'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).
  • Learn the lingo with an informal lesson in the Spanish language. From Hola to Hasta Luego to the all-important phrases – like how to order a cerveza!
