With so many crossings and borders, the options for travel in and around El Salvador are very flexible. Points of interest are spread throughout the country so there is no natural route to travel. If you want to visit
Parque Nacional El Imposible
, go for the La Hachadura crossing, drift through
and on to
San Salvador
before heading north to
. If you're going to Honduras, head to
El Poy
if you want to drop into Santa Rosa de Copán or Gracias, or
if you want Gracias or Tegucigalpa. For Nicaragua head to El Amatillo. El Salvador is subtly different to the other Central American nations. While you could shoot through the main highlights in 10 days, hang out for two to three weeks and soak up the nuances. If you've got the time, you'll enjoy the difference.
