San Salvador

4.1
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. San Salvador is in San Salvador Department. Use our El Salvador holiday maker tool to plan your trip to San Salvador and other destinations in El Salvador.
