San Salvador
The country's capital, San Salvador sits in a scenic position surrounded by impressive volcanoes.
Popular historic sites such as Joya de Ceren Archaeological Park and Iglesia El Rosario are in your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Catedral Metropolitana and Santa Ana Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from San Salvador: La Libertad (El Tunco & Furesa Fundacion Refugio Salvaje) and Lake Coatepeque (in Coatepeque). Spend the 8th (Thu) exploring nature at Parque Nacional El Boqueron. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Cinquera Rain Forest Park and examine the collection at Centro Monsenor Romero.
