Cruise to the land of volcanos, beaches & mayan ruins

Located in southwest El Salvador, the Pacific coast town of Acajutla was founded in 1524 and is the country’s primary seaport. It’s also a gateway to canopy tours of the Apaneca forests, day trips to the Izalco Volcano and beautiful beaches like Los Cabanos, which is popular amongst surfers and divers.

Follow the Route of the Flowers, which winds its way through picturesque small towns, and celebrates cultural events and cuisine, or visit Chalchuapa, home to the pre-Columbian archeological site of Tazumal. These Mayan ruins are believed to date back to AD 100, and are considered the best preserved in all of El Salvador.
