DESCRIPTION

You will first do the brief paperwork that will allow you to exit airport without paying taxes.  We will then start heading towards San Salvador, the second largest city of Central America with a population of about 1.8 million people. We will visit the main landmarks of the city including downtown, where we will visit the Central Square, home to the National Palace, a neoclassic building built in 1905; and the Metropolitan Cathedral which substitutes the previous edifications destroyed by earthquakes or fires. The Cathedral is surprisingly wide and large (Neo-Romanesque and Byzantine) and celestial drawings are painted on its cupola. Inside there is a stand of wooden figure of the Divino Salvador del Mundo and the tomb of Archbishop Romero, a martyr and an important figure for El Salvador and a Saint for the Catholic Church. Rosario church is also an interesting stop. With its bizarre building, it holds the grave of Father José Matías Delgado, a very important figure of the Central America independence. En route back to the airport, we will visit one of El Salvador´s most famous spots to appreciate the making and taste our most typical dish, pupusas.

Return to airport for connecting flight.
