El Salvador

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. It is surrounded by Guatemala, Honduras, and the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, El Salvador has a bad reputation for violence and generally unsafe activities; however, there is a strong police presence in tourist areas, and you can request a free police escort during hiking excursions. Most major crime is localized to neighborhoods with no interest to tourists. Travelers should nonetheless take care not to wear flashy jewelry or have an expensive camera out in plain sight.

El Salvador is a beautiful country with mountains, national parks, volcanoes, and excellent surfing. Such natural wonders, coupled with the country’s pivot toward democracy, can convince people to experience the many wonderful attractions that El Salvador has to offer.
