HIGHLIGHTS
  • 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.
The Best Of El Salvador trip starts from San Salvador and ends in El Tunco. It is an explorer trip that takes 8 days taking you through Ahuachapan, San Salvador and El Tunco in El Salvador. Best Of El Salvador is a guided small group trip that 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.

“The trip was well planned and we saw the most amazing nature in Montenegro and Bosnia-i-Herzegovina. We had a night in Pluzine near lake piva where the accomodation could have been better. The guide and driver/mechanic were a great team and both of them did an excellent job”
