There is a lot to do in and outside of the city in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador. The area is surrounded by volcanoes, so head to the Cerro Verde National Park, where you can drive around three volcanoes: Cerro Verde, Izalco, and Santa Ana, as well as the massive Lake Coatepeque, created in the crater of a volcanic eruption. The area is home to many archeological sites of the Mayan civilization, museums in the city, and be sure to check out Joya de Ceren Tazumal and Casa Blanca. Some choose to also make the drive just over the border into Honduras, to the site at Copan. Within the city limits, head to Liberty Plaza and Barrios Park areas to tour the National Theater, the Illustrious Cemetery, Metropolitan Cathedral, and National Palace. The bar and restaurant scene in and around the plaza has plenty to offer foodies and night owls alike. Families looking to entertain the kids might head to the La Laguna Botanical Garden, where a lagoon created by, you guessed it, a volcanic eruption over 2000 years ago, will have your kids feeding the fish and hitting the playground. There’s also a children’s museum in the center of town next to Cascatlan Park, filled with green spaces, two museums, and monuments to the city’s past.
