The smallest country in South America… Home to 23 active volcanoes… One of the most epic surf spots along the Pacific coast…

If you were a contestant on Jeopardy, you’d be taking home top dollar by buzzing in “What is El Salvador?”. This tropical paradise is the bee’s knees if you’re in the market for some serious relaxation. Mosey along the black-sand beaches of El Tunco, rent a surfboard and catch a morning wave in El Cuco, or just pull up a stool in a beachfront bar and while away the day sipping on a coconut or two. It doesn’t get much more chilled out than this.
