As the smallest sibling in the family of Central American countries, El Salvador often doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves – but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

While neighbouring Mexico, Cuba and Costa Rica swell with holiday-makers, El Salvador’s dark-sand beaches and colourful colonial towns are ripe for discovery. There’s centuries of Mesoamerican history to unearth, specialty delicacies to devour and world-class national parks filled with pumas, boars and hairy anteaters. Once you’ve woken up to the smell of freshly ground coffee, you’ll be quietly glad this is the region’s best kept secret after all.
