Cruises to El Salvador

Overview of El Salvador

El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is a country in Central America. It is bordered on the northeast by Honduras, on the northwest by Guatemala and on the south by the Pacific Ocean. El Salvador’s capital and largest city is San Salvador.

A famous seaport on the south coast of El Salvador, Acajutla is a South American city filled with leafy suburbs, galleries, museums and walking trails that meander through the recently planted city greenery. Dive into the cultural markets and experience a taste of the real El Salvador and explore its rich coffee and sugar-marking history.

Known for being some of Central America’s best surfing spots, the coast of El Salvador is the perfect playground for those looking to splash among the crystal clear blue waters. The warm waters and welcoming locals make it a tranquil destination for tourists and travellers. Head to La Libertad and enjoy fresh fish and catch a perfect wave or opt for a location like El Sunzal for vibrant nightlife.

Although not as popular as Honduras or Belize, diving in El Salvador is still a popular tourist activity. Centred around Los Cobanos in the summer months you can expect to see angel fish, green turtles, lobsters, moray eels and eagle mantas. Dive beneath the surface to see a glimpse of the reef in all its glory.

El Salvador is an absolute feast for the senses. Known locally for the famous food of Pupusa, round cornmeal tortillas stuffed with cheese, refried beans, sweet potato, herbs and pork. You’ll find an abundance of these local establishments in the coastal town and villages of El Salvador. Wash it all down with a traditional drink like licuados or chilate.
