El Salvador: Waiting to Be Discovered

El Salvador is sadly the most neglected country in Central America, as many backpackers along the Gringo Trail tend to skip the tiny country on their way to Nicaragua. But after my visit, El Salvador proved that it has a plethora of beaches, volcanoes, delicious foods, and friendly people that put it in league with the rest of the Central American countries.

El Salvador’s tale is that of a country once marred by warfare and corruption that has enjoyed a drastic turnaround in recent years. But the rest of the world has yet to get the memo.

Due to a campaign to stop violence against women, many houses in Lake Suchitoto, El Salvador have the stencil of the Motmot  with the words “In this house we want a life free of violence against women”.
