Visit the southernmost Mayan city : San Andres and the world heritage site of Copan Ruins in one single trip. San Andrés is a pre-Hispanic Mayan site of El Salvador, whose long occupation began around 900 BC. C. as an agricultural town in the Zapotitán valley of the department of La Libertad. This early settlement was vacated by the year 250 because of the huge eruption of the caldera of Lake Ilopango, and was again occupied in the fifth century, along with many other sites in the Zapotitán Valley. Between 600 and 900 d. C. San Andrés was the capital of a Mayan manor with supremacy over the other settlements of the Valley. Once in Copán your guide will highlight the most important moments of this city-state where its habitats develop a unique form of sculpture and carving.

We took a half day tour to El Zunzal and el Tunco from San Salvador. It was a hot day and our only day to visit the beautiful beaches. The walk on the rocky beach was tiring but thankfully inter tours had a really nice hotel with a pool and facilities that we could use, which will be exactly what you need given the beach conditions - rocky and no beds by the beach. The best part about our tour was definetly our guide, Francisco! Very genuine and professional. Would definetly reccommend, thank you Francisco and Dina ????????

Definitely recommend staying here and checking out the monkeys. It's pretty cool to watch them fly through the trees and come down to collect their bananas. The tree houses are perfectly comfortable and the food at the restaurant is good. It's remote so very quiet with a dark sky to see the stars. DO bring bug spray. It's a forest and there are a lot of bugs.

Francis was early to pick me up at my hotel and very friendly and professional. Once we arrived at the waterfalls he actually hired a local guy who lived there to show us around and give us more details. Francis doesn't need this service but does it to help out his fellow El Salvadorians who would otherwise be out of work. The hot springs were the PERFECT temperature and just like being in a natural hot tub. The trash around the water is horrendous but they're working on finding a solution to this ever worsening problem. Pack it in, pack it out! Next we went for lunch at an amazing artistic cafe where I bought a piece of art because it was so unique and irresistible. Francis is a wonderful guide and now a friend who will do whatever he can to make sure you have a beautiful, comfortable, informative trip in his country. It's also nice to feel comfortable with a guide, when you're a solo female traveler.
