Always a pleasure to visit here and spend a day away from it all. Often chilly so take a jacket, try the local restaurant its not flashy but the food and service are good.

Cerro El Pital Unique and Wonderful Hike Unique and wonderful are the two words I would use to describe this hike. Unique because all but the last few minutes of the trail are on a dirt road, which doesn't sound that appealing but the beauty of it is that all along the road are small homes, farms, flowers, dogs barking,...

Cerro El Pital is hardly a country high point worthy of accolades. It is a country high point, nonetheless, and therefore peaks the interest of my friend and I. We boarded a bus in San Miguel in the morning and many hours later and two transfers, we were chugging up the steep grades of the 526 bus out of San... More

However, this time my trip went a little further, we got all the way down to the Jiboa River, which is the natural frontier between El Salvador and Honduras.... More

We combined this trip with a visit to La Palma. The road trip was attractive and the views stunning at the top. We camped near a little cabin out of the wind (the main areas is a bit of a wind tunnel) and away from the main camping site. There is a main camping site in between lodges and another... More
