- Overnight on a coffee plantation
- Explore the Central American historic centre of San Salvador
- Learn to surf in the Pacific Ocean at El Cuco
Overlooked by many travellers to Central America, El Salvador is the smallest country in the region and one of the most delightful; you can discover the absolute highlights on this superb multi activity holiday. Spanish colonial towns, cloud forest trails, an indigenous culture, unspoiled Pacific Ocean beaches and more than 20 volcanic peaks; El Salvador has it all. This exciting multi-activity holiday begins in the west, with mountain biking and optional pony-trekking on Cerro Cuyanunsul and continues in the same theme as we hike up Volcan Ilamatepec (2381m). Detouring to the Honduras border, we also make the short and easy ascent to El Pital (2730m), El Salvador's high point. Heading east our multi-activity exploration of El Salvador continues as we enjoy a city tour of San Salvador, overnight on a coffee plantation and climb more volcanoes. After all of this, you'll be ready for a couple of days on the beach at El Cuco, with a surfing lesson thrown in!
Is this holiday for you?
This is a diverse and action packed holiday, with a day of mountain biking (or pony trekking), as well as surfing and trekking. The biking is at a level where previous experience is not required (although you must know how to ride a bike for the mountain biking). The hikes are mostly quite short (half a day or a little more), participants should be fit and active and most importantly have a spirit of adventure.
