This Is Why You Want To Go To El Salvador

Tuesday, October 6, 2009


How cool would it be to tell your friends back home how you spent your vacation volcano-hopping in El Salvador? Well, it’s not out of the question. With 22 volcanoes, crater lakes, and beaches to knock the breath out of your lungs (as well as really cheap flights from the U.S./Canada), it’s not long before the word’s out on El Salvador.

Over at the Guardian, one curious traveler heads out swimming in El Salvador’s largest lake, Ilopango (a crater lake formed by a massive eruption in 1880), then through the capital of San Salvador and south to El Sunzal, a beach some say has the best surfing in Central America (and is one of the region’s best kept secrets — until now, mwahahaha).
