Accommodations in San SalvadorCapital of El Salvador, San Salvador is the main city of the Republic and the countrys economic motor. The origin of the names of both country and the city has a strong catholic root, as it refers to Jesus as the savior of the world. Like the surrounding cities, its origin goes back to the 16th century when Spanish colonizers wrested control of the land from the indigenous peoples.
San Salvador enjoys a tropical climate, making it a wonderful place to visit at any time of year. The countrys climate has allowed it to profit from the lucrative production of coffee, now one of its main sources of revenue.
The countrys main points of touristic interest are based on three basic pillars: nature, architectural and colonial culture, and pre-colonial archaeological sites. As the main point of entry and departure for the country, the city is attractive; it houses the monument to El Salvador, the National Theater and Palace, the Cemetery of the Illustrious and the Casa Dueñas. But beyond the boundaries of San Salvador one can feast ones eyes on Cerro Verde National Park, the colorful city of Apaneca, the Balboa Natural History Park, the archaeological site of Chalchuapa, Ciudad Arce, Conchagua Volcano, the colonial city of Sunchitobo, Pital, the highest point in El Salvador, the Gulf of Fonseca and the island of Menaguera and the city of Izalco. Whether you seek mangroves, beautiful beaches, museums, restaurants, nightlife or just souvenir shopping, sometimes even the smallest countries contain the greatest treasures.
