Highlights of El Salvador

Taking a cheap flight to El Salvador may be the start of a trip you'll never regret and never forget. Among the exhilarating spots that will leave delightful memories the the refreshing pools of Los Chorros, a series of large, natural pools of clear spring water from overhanging volcanic cliffs. Enjoy the La Laguna Botanical Garden, the only garden in the world located in the crater of an extinct volcano, or visit the San Salvador Volcano towering over the city, a long dormant volcano with spectacular views and opportunities to hike along well maintained trails into the crater itself. Then try the Montecristo Cloud Forest, where a 7933-foot summit marks the point where the borders of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala meet in one of Central America's largest and most magnificent cloud forests. And don't forget the Pacific coast, a 188 mile black sand coastline that continues south with the major hotel and golf developments of La Costa del Sol to the beautiful beaches.

Other Money-Saving Tips

Airfares are cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday, since Mondays are popular with business travelers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible. Travel on a lesser-known carrier as they may undercut the larger carriers. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise, and look for flights that go through large cities with many flights.
