Signature El Salvador: Revolutionary road trip

11 days from £1,830pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip


Private Journey


 This holiday includes some remote rural areas where the friendly guides and general tranquillity will soon set you at ease. It's a broad-based trip, including gentle outdoor activities as well as visits to highlights by car and boat, delivering an authentic experience of the cultural as well as the natural richness and variety of the republic. 

Owing to its complicated recent history El Salvador has yet to establish itself as a sought-after tourist destination, but this is one of its attractions: you will find truly unspoilt landscapes and a genuine welcome from the local population. It’s a small country, easy to get around by land and you’ll be distracted from some uneven road surfaces by the captivating scenery through which you will pass. Outstanding, both literally at metaphorically, are the dominant volcanoes which stud the countryside – you’ll get to view the cones of el Boquerón, Santa Ana and Izalco as you visit national parks established between areas of , richly fertile, intensively farmed farming country peppered with coffee plantations. Also in the rugged interior you’ll drive along the famed “route of the flowers”, drop in on preserved colonial artisan towns such as Suchitoto and little-visited Mayan archaeological sites. The coast is not neglected, with a boat trip on the Gulf of Fonseca and a short time to view the surfing on a Pacific beach.

What our experts say

Marked by a turbulent history, this underrated country is one for adventurers and explorers, those with an inquisitive and open mind. What makes this place special is that it’s not really on the well-trodden tourist route yet; the very unspoilt, rugged nature of El Salvador is what we showcase on this trip. Hike through previous guerrilla territory, that is now a peaceful conservation area; learn to cook traditional pupusa – a thick corn flour tortilla, filled with cheese, pork or beans, El Salvador’s national dish; and travel the Ruta de las Flores discovering quaint, colourful villages along the way; a holiday of adventure and discovery awaits in El Salvador.
