Did you know that El Salvador is smaller than Massachusetts, but has HUNDREDS of volcanoes?!
I had the opportunity to visit El Salvador a few weeks ago on a tour with Salvadorean Tours, and I was blown away by the natural beauty, hospitable people and tasty food (hello #pupusas)! We went all over the country, hiking volcanoes, visiting small villages, touring big cities, etc — and I loved every second of being there.
El Salvador, unfortunately, gets a bad reputation on the news & media for being unsafe, and therefore, many tourists avoid going there. I’m here to tell you not to listen to the news and come visit for yourself to see how truly spectacular this country is. I’m not saying crime doesn’t exist there (crime is everywhere) — but as long as you take normal precautions and use common sense (i.e. avoid dangerous areas at night), then you will be fine. Salvadorean People are warm and friendly, and almost everyone is open to having a genuine conversation.
I hope this video changes your perspectives on the beauty of El Salvador.
