San Salvador

(3.7/5 based on 2,800+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, nature, sightseeing
The country's capital, San Salvador sits in a scenic position surrounded by impressive volcanoes. The volcanic landscape has become a key area to explore when on holiday in San Salvador, with the dramatic topography wowing visitors during a number of popular day excursions. The city itself, as headlines across the world have told us, is currently struggling with violent gang-related crime, borne of huge disparities in wealth between neighborhoods. Areas to the east of town remain out-of-bounds for many, and warnings are not to be taken lightly. But the fine museums and galleries of the small city, along with a fun and welcoming commercial center, make San Salvador enriching and well worth exploring. Make San Salvador central to your El Salvador travel plans using our El Salvador vacation generator.
