What are the accommodations like in El Salvador?

In El Salvador, we have a collection of charming accommodations such as small colonial hotels, dazzling beach front hotels, family apartments, bed and breakfasts, and boutique hotels.  

Due to the Ruta de Las Flores, we work with an array of small hotels in El Salvador. The Ruta de las Flores is actually a part of the country connected by one very panoramic road centered around Juayua. The road goes by five small towns. The road between the towns is covered with colorful flowers commonly from November to February. Apart from the flowers, these charming towns offer a few other things to do. 

Are meals included?

Breakfasts are included in most of our trips. The prices include lunches on our excursions when you are traveling off the beaten path where there are not many restaurants.

In bigger towns, where there are plenty of restaurants, we often do not include meals, to give our travelers the chance to choose their own food desires and taste local dishes. Our local guides can recommend some excellent local and international restaurants. It is worth mentioning the weekly weekend food festival in La Ruta de Las Flores.

Our prices generally do not include international flights. We think that it is often better cost-wise for travelers to purchase these directly and this also gives them the chance to choose the routes and times that work best for them. If you wish, we can always arrange your flights with an airline company that works with El Salvador flights.

How do I get to the hotel from the airport when I arrive in El Salvador?

A representative will be waiting for you outside of arrivals in the international airport of El Salvador. You will find him or her standing directly outside of the customs check after the baggage claim and holding a sign with your name on it. 

How far in advance should I confirm my trip?

You may reserve your tour to El Salvador at any moment. For most of our excursions, two or three months in advance works excellent, though Holy Week, the Holiday Season, may fill up five – six months earlier. We usually recommend that you wait to buy your international flights until after your itinerary with us is finished and confirmed.

The sooner that we organize your trip, the sooner that you are able to take advantage of flight deals as they come available with the airlines. Most of the time, we can accommodate last minute travelers. Contact us and we will do our best to find a journey that works best for your dates and interests.

Definitely. We can give you ideas and tips for additional excursions. We can add extra days in most of our journeys. Let us know how you would like to change your itinerary and we will be happy to arrange your itinerary.
