Excellent Combination Trip in El Salvador - Nature and History
Vignes_C, Mar 2023
Learning the history of El Salvador along the colonial route was excellent. Also the volcanoes that we saw (partially as it was a little cloudy) and the walk in the national park was great. My guide (Alfredo) was perfectly on time for the pickup, and we even tasted local fruits along the way. Lunch was at a really good place as well (thank you for the recommendation), and I enjoyed walking around Ataco town. Thank you Mayra for organizing the trip so well as well. I would highly recommend this trip if one wants to understand a little on the colonial past of El Salvador while also dwelling in nature for a couple of hours.

I had an incredible day on this tour! Marbel of Salvadoran Tours was professional, friendly and very knowledgable of El Salvador and the Salvador area. We visited so many towns, saw quite a few volcanos and toured the national park. Our stop at a local restaurant was nice as well. Awesome!
