El Salvador Needs to be on Your Bucket List

Did you know that El Salvador is smaller than Massachusetts, but has HUNDREDS of volcanoes?!

I had the opportunity to visit El Salvador a few weeks ago on a tour with Salvadorean Tours, and I was blown away by the natural beauty, hospitable people and tasty food (hello #pupusas)! We went all over the country, hiking volcanoes, visiting small villages, touring big cities, etc -- and I loved every second of being there.

El Salvador, unfortunately, gets a bad reputation on the news & media for being unsafe, and therefore, many tourists avoid going there. I'm here to tell you not to listen to the news and come visit for yourself to see how truly spectacular this country is. I'm not saying crime doesn't exist there (crime is everywhere) -- but as long as you take normal precautions and use common sense (i.e. avoid dangerous areas at night), then you will be fine. Salvadorean People are warm and friendly, and almost everyone is open to having a genuine conversation.

I hope this video changes your perspectives on the beauty of El Salvador.

Best Places to Visit in El Salvador

🇸🇻 Qué ver en EL SALVADOR, el pulgarcito de América

¿CONOCES EL SALVADOR? En el pulgarcito de América encotrarás de todo: ciudades coloniales como Suchitoto, playas como El Tunco, gente maravillosa... #ElSalvador #ElTunco #SanSalvador

El Salvador Impresionante / El Salvador Impressive

Today we will travel through El Salvador, a little great country that has a lot to show, so let’s not waste time and let's go to our first destination: Suchitoto, which is for me the great secret jewel of the colonial towns. Located next to Lake Suchitlán, there are few colonial cities in Latin America as well preserved and so little exploited by tourism, so it is a delight to walk through its streets surrounded by colors, history and especially the Salvadoran peaceful life.

Important notice! If you come to Suchitoto you are going to get your hands dirty because we are in one of the great centers of natural production of indigo. For those who do not know what I’m saying, indigo is a plant whose leaves, after a fermentation process, give a natural blue dye called indigo, with which we are going to dye a scarf

The first thing to do are knots with rubbers, thereby creating our own decor. Then, with a thread we will roll up the scarf to turn it into a long sausage. Now is when we are going to stain our hands submerging the scarf several times in the dye. We remove the excess of indigo, washing with soap and water, let it dry for several hours and we have our indigo-dyed scarf following natural processes.

El Salvador has two very good things for a visitor. The first is that it has everything: colonial towns, archeological sites, lush nature, endless beaches, traditions, gastronomy ... And the second is that being a small country, everything is very close. You know what they say: good essences come in small countries.

That's right, El Salvador has everything, and everything is very close so we will not take too long to reach El Malecón del Puerto de La Libertad, a destination that blends tradition and gastronomy. That pier that goes into the sea keeps the best of traditional Salvadoran fishing, dozens of small boats that every day bring to harbor an amazing variety of fish, which are cleaned and sold right away in the same boat where hours earlier they were fished. This gorgeous fish market is the source of fish of the chefs of the best restaurants in the country, and now you can imagine that here you can eat perhaps the best ceviches of El Salvador.

I do not want to end the episode without showing you at least one other site, so let's get to the surfer’s paradise of El Salvador: the beach of El Tunco, a destination marked in red on the agenda of waves lovers. Here come every year thousands of surfers from all over the world who spend hours into in these warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, constantly catching waves. It seems that the day in El Tunco is running out, but we still have much to discover in El Salvador, but we will do it another day and in another video.

Worst Places for Americans to Visit Around The World

Get more Tips here!
Whether they pose a threat to travelers’ safety, or may cause detrimental harm to one’s physical health, here is our list of the 10 worst places for Americans to visit around the world.

1. Saudi Arabia
The U.S. Department of State advises Americans to exercise extreme caution when visiting Saudi Arabia, due to, in part, the increased amount of armed conflict. One place in particular, Edge of the World in Riyadh, was once an insanely popular tourist destination. But, maybe, it's better to stay away.

2. El Salvador
Amazing views, delicious cuisine and impressive ruins will have to wait due to the increase in violence. One day, Americans may finally get the green light to make the trek to El Salvador again.

3. Somalia
The U.S. Department of State even suggests those who ignore their warning to draft their last will and testament before heading out to this East African country. The country’s prime minister has dreams of a brighter future, and our fingers are crossed, too, cause it's an amazing place.

4. Honduras
Americans might want to think twice about traveling to Honduras, especially since the lack of police and increased incidents of crime. Hopefully it will change soon, cause there's so much to see about Maya history.

5. Democratic Republic of the Congo
It's not a good place because of the problems with the Ebola and armed conflict. But it's a very different place full of beautiful mountains, volcanoes and the Lake Kivu.

6. Bangkok, Thailand
This county is quite the opposite, it's not a good place because of us, the tourists. It's so crowded that we're starting to affect negatively the country. So, maybe, it's better it give it a time.

7. Afghanistan
Recent wars, Communist coups, and attacks make it a really bad place to visit. Hopefully, one day we'll be able to see the stunning Hindu Kush mountains and breathtaking lakes.

8. North Korea
It isn’t entirely impossible to visit North Korea, and the U.S. Department of State advises its citizens that traveling to the East Asian country could result in arrest and long-term detention by the hands of North Korea’s government officials.

9. Mount Everest
Mountain trekkers have to come up with the estimated $40,000 to be guided up the mountain by a local Nepali operator, and there are physical dangers for climbing to the peak, as well, including frostbite and hypothermia from the freezing temperatures. So... a bit risky.

10. Beijing, China
This is the worst place to visit because of the serious air pollution. They have made smog a huge problem in the city, resulting in the government to implement emergency measures to help alleviate the problem. You should wait until they fix it.

Which one do you think is the worst place to visit?

🇸🇻 Lo mejor de EL SALVADOR, el pulgarcito de América

El Salvador has several tourist routes where you can discover the best of nature, history and Salvadoran traditions. One of the most popular is the Ruta de las Flores, covering various natural areas and villages that compete to see which is the most beautiful. The first two towns that we visit are Juayúa and Apaneca which have many things in common. A nice central park, a peaceful life and especially two spectacular churches, each of them more beautiful that the other. Here is the church of Santa Lucia in Juayúa, and here the Church of San Andres Apostol in Apaneca. I will show you, and you will decide which one you like the most.

Next to Apaneca is Cerro Verde, a National Park of over 2500 hectares whose great attraction is hiking to the top of the volcanoes, although for people who are lazy like me have several less physically demanding trails, where we will walk surrounded by the best variety of native nature. Along the route you can enjoy the view of Lake Coatepeque, the impressive ceiba trees and some semi-wild species, like this fake Tarzan wannabe.

The best way to meet the immense beauty of the Ruta de las Flores is from the heights. And maybe you have the same problem that I have, I was not born a bird, I was born a human. But relax, here they solve this little problem. In order to solve the small human problem of not having wings, they have installed a zip line in the area of coffee plantations, where you can enjoy even more of the beauty of the Ruta de las Flores, with a touch of adrenaline.

At first, I said that the municipalities of the Ruta de las Flores compete to see which is the most beautiful. If the first two are proud of their churches, Salcoatitán and Actaco are proud of art. In the municipality of Salcoatitán the most impressive are the ceibas, these imposing trees that are a symbol of Central America. But what I have to show you are these mosaics that decorate walls and city parks. A beautiful and laborious craftsmanship with which Salcoatitán also tells its history, claiming to be the prettiest village in the Ruta de las Flores.

Durante estos días son muchos los lugares que he podido disfrutar en este pequeño gran país. Su capital San Salvador, playas de ensueño, ciudades coloniales, naturaleza exuberante, tradiciones, gastronomía... y si me preguntáis que es lo que más me ha gustado de todo, la respuesta la tengo muy clara, lo mejor de El Salvador es esto.

If Salcoatitán is proud of its mosaics, the streets of Ataco show wall paintings depicting scenes from their daily lives and cats. Because… tell me the truth, who doesn’t like cats? This mural gallery has made the town famous, and every year increased are the paintings that are shown on the walls of the houses of Ataco so, within a very short time, this small town will become one of the largest museums in America.

During these days I have enjoyed many places of this great little country. Its capital San Salvador, idyllic beaches, colonial cities, exuberant nature, traditions, gastronomy ... and if you ask me which is what I liked the most, I have the answer very clear, the best of El Salvador is this.

El Salvador Travel Video Guide

El Salvador Travel Video Guide - El Salvador sneaks up on you: in lefty lounge bars in San Salvador, at sobering museums and war memorials, and along lush cloud-forest trails; it's a place of remarkable warmth and intelligence, made all the more appealing for being so unexpected. Travellers tend to skip El Salvador, wooed by marquee destinations such as Guatemala and Costa Rica, and unnerved by stories of civil war and gang violence. But the war ended almost 20 years ago, and crime, while serious, is almost exclusively played out between rival gangs; tourists are virtually never involved.

El Salvador Travel Fact: And though El Salvador has fewer protected areas than its neighbors, you get them practically to yourself -- including pristine forests, active volcanoes and sparkling lakes. The only place you might find a crowd is on Punta Roca, El Salvador's most famous surfing spot -- it happens to be one of the best right point breaks in the world, yet is a ghost town compared to lesser swells in Costa Rica and elsewhere. And when it comes to cities, none in Central America is smarter or cooler than San Salvador, with first-rate universities, museums and galleries, a vibrant bar and live-music scene, and an array of progressive NGOs, both local and international.

Enjoy your El Salvador Travel Video Guide!

Here's a video I made of the best places to visit in El Salvador

TOP 10 TOURIST ATTRACTIONS IN HAVANA: Havana Travel Guide. Sightseeing in Havana (Cuba)

Havana's best TOP 10 things to see in Havana, Cuba.

To condense such a peculiar city like Havana, with its own rhythm, its own tastes, their own people and their particular lifestyle in only 10 places is difficult. In the list 'Top 10 Amazing Places of Havana' Cicerone Plus we leave aside the famous hotels and local prestige to focus on the most historic, both the 'Cold War' as the designated World Heritage Site.

Top 10 Amazing Places in Havana:

10 .- Revolution Square, the cradle of the Cuban Revolution and the cult of figures that prompted José Martí, the precursor, Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos.

9. Plaza de San Francisco de Asis (Square of San Francisco de Asis), where we find the homonymous 16th century convent that incorporates many religious objects of historical character. Baroque jewel converted into a museum and choral music room.

8. Paseo del Prado, Paseo de Martí today was built in the late 18th century, where simply walk from one end to another to find many buildings and sculptural monuments of Old Havana.

7. Plaza Vieja (Old Square), harmonized by valuable colonial buildings from the 17th century to 19th with a great aesthetic unity. There also found the Palace of the Counts of Jaruco that has several galleries.

6. Havana Cathedral, built in the 18th century in baroque style, the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception has several tombs and objects of famous people of the city and Cuba. Also in the square surrounding there are some of the most prominent colonial mansions.

5. Museums of Fine Arts, across the avenue the Missions are 2 Museums of Fine Arts: one dedicated to Cuban art and one to Universal art.

4. Museum of the Revolution, conceived in the early 20th century's canons of eclecticism, a dome at its summit as crown and outdoor memorials. A key to understanding the political and ideological heritage of the Cuban wars museum. It houses historical and artistic works of the late 15th century to the present.

3. The Temple, a small temple in neoclassical style of the early 19th century, home to large canvases of the time that had a considerable influence on Cuban architecture and in neighboring countries. In the Plaza de Armas, where it is, there are many varied plastic, sculptural and ornamental works.

2. The 4 Fortresses of Havana:

Castle of San Carlos de la Cabaña, mid 18th century, was the largest in Cuba and throughout the Americas, built by Spain.
Morro Castle, the 16th century, the castle of the 3 Kings of Morro, seen at the entrance to the bay of the city, from its conception is a prominent symbol of Havana. The lighthouse dates from the 19th century.
Castle of Real Fuerza, also from the 16th century, which even boasts its impressive military architecture and is now a museum of colonial times.
Fortress of San Salvador de la Puntilla, late 16th century, winner of a National Archaeological Restoration Award.

Honorable mention:

El Malecón

Before revealing the number one, we show a place that even without such a significant historical weight as those already mentioned, it is certainly pleasant visit to mingle with Cubans, breathing the sea air and enjoy spectacular sunsets. The Malecon of Havana is the Caribbean's most famous promenade.

1. Cuba National Capitol, striking symbol of the city of Havana and one of the great buildings of all Cuba. Its dome is one of the largest in the world of great architectural richness, with clean lines and beautiful proportions and decorated with great magnificence. The Capitol declared a National Monument of Cuba.
