Escape the tourist trails on our small group tours to El Salvador. From colourful colonial villages to dormant volcanoes and vast stretches of pristine coastline, our El Salvador adventures boast fascinating history, delicious food, diverse wildlife and spectacular scenery.
Join our Highlights of El Salvador Tour to kayak through the mangroves of Jiquilisco Bay in search of crocodile and get up close with endangered hawksbill marine turtle with the Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative. Hike to the summit of El Salvador’s highest volcano, Santa Ana, and peer into its luminous turquoise crater lake. Follow your local guide to uncover colourful street-art in the small villages of Ruta de las Flores and take a dip under the tumbling cascades of the Chorros de Calera waterfall.
Head into the mountains for an overnight stay in the peaceful lakeside town of Suchitoto on our Central America Discovery Tour. Wander through the rustic cobblestone streets lined with brightly painted doorways and browse the quaint craft shops bearing hand-stitched purses, patterned rugs and vibrantly decorated pots. Listen out for the clapping sound of ‘pupusas’ being made and nibble on these delicious gooey treats as you immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere.
