What you can expect
Make the most of your layover in El Salvador by spending half a day discovering the main sights of San Salvador. In addition to discovering the historic city centre and main sites, also enjoy a scenic walk up to the slopes of the amazing El Boquerón Volcano.
Clear customs and meet your guide at the airport, and make a prompt journey to the centre of the old city. Begin with the majestic Metropolitan Cathedral of the Holy Saviour, and then take a closer look at El Rosario Church, with an arched interior that casts light on an impressive stained-glass ceiling. This building is an architectural gem of the capital. Visit the National Palace and the French Renaissance-style National Theatre, declared a national monument in 1979.
Next, head 15 miles (25 km) outside the city to explore El Boquerón Volcano. Enjoy a refreshing walk on nature trails surrounded by fragrant pine trees and beautiful flowers. Reach a sprawling view of the crater before getting dropped off back at the airport with plenty of time to catch your flight.
