Central America on a shoestring travel guide

Central America on a shoestring - El Salvador (Chapter)

8th Edition Oct 2013

This is the El Salvador chapter from Lonely Planet's Central America on a Shoestring guidebook.

El Salvador is that little dynamo where you’ll find a glorious coastline with world-class waves, glimpses of tropical paradise, hard-core war tourism and small-town charm by the plaza-load - not to mention genuinely hospitable locals.

  • charge the western highlands on the Ruta de las Flores, hiking fincas (plantations), stepping into hot springs and chowing down at the weekend food fairs
  • maps
  • ride great breaks, string a hammock under the palms and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of La Costa del Bálsamo
  • transportation
  • steal stunning ridgetop views and splash in river pools, while hiking from the remote backdoor of Parque Nacional El Imposible
  • restaurants & accommodations
