Explore the highlights of the city with a native of San Salvador. Important monuments and historical spots, main avenues, commercial and residential districts sightseeing landmarks and monuments that commemorate relevant historical figures and events. Many public buildings in El Centro were made during the golden age of coffee exports with a mix of architectural styles. With the recent renovation Downtown is nicer and safer than ever to walk. Different business are boosting up and has become "the place to be". Walk the streets learning details events that occurred on this very place over almost 500 years of history and the people that took part in it. From colony to Independence. From the Federation to the Coffee Republic. From military regimes to democracy. From repressions to big celebrations and presidential inaugurations. On the afternoon visit a local market (you can have lunch here) followed by a walk through the cloud forest at El Boquerón Nat. Park, on San Salvador volcano.
