Depart from Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport in an air-conditioned vehicle, after priority access through customs, and travel to the thriving center of San Salvador to see some of the city’s most impressive monuments. Note the contrast between metropolitan structures and antique architecture as you explore El Salvador’s bustling capital with a private guide or on your own with a private driver.
Tour the historic downtown to catch glimpses of structural beauties like the Metropolitan Cathedral and El Rosario Church, and absorb the tranquil ambiance of Salvador del Mundo, a leafy square thronged with decorative beauty.
After a thorough exploration of the country's capital, ascend to a height of 5,905 feet (1,800m) to El Boquerón, a magnificent volcano whose enormous mouth is the symbol of the city. Gaze at the colossal crater and stroll pine-flanked trails for sweeping vistas of the impressive scenery.
Revitalize with a snack in town at any point (own expense) and then return to the airport at the end of your tour. Arrive well in advance of your connecting flight and bid your guide farewell on departure.
