El Salvador San Salvador
San Salvador is a large, dynamic city full of noise and movement.
San Salvador is a large, dynamic city full of noise and movement. A real jumble of references can be observed here: the violent history of volcanic eruptions and civil war, present day enterprise and artistic creativeness, a burgeoning population, both collapse and regeneration. It's an interesting city but not one to wander round at will on your own: some parts are still dangerous, while others are havens of tranquility and innovation. In the company of a local guide you could have a great experience discovering highlights and hidden corners.
