Where to go when - our guide to El Salvador

Volcano Cerro Verde

The weather in El Salvador is wide and varied

Compact and bijoux El Salvador is a place of wild beauty. Having emerged from a period of unrest, the locals are some of the most friendly and welcoming in Latin America and you will find colourful restored colonial towns, surfing beaches, national parks and coffee plantations. As with much of this region El Salvador has a typical tropical climate with high temperatures all year round at low altitudes. In general, the best time to visit is during the drier months of November-February – it gets very hot thereafter. May-October has short tropical showers – it is cooler, but some of the back roads may be impassable and there’s a risk of tropical storms from September-November.

During Holy Week (Easter) there are celebrations throughout the country with lively processions. In February the pretty colonial town of Suchitoto hosts a world-class arts and culture festival with music and dance groups. From May to October you can see the nesting Easter Pacific hawksbill turtles and from October to January you will find Leatherback turtles along the Pacific coast.
