Travel from San Salvador to Copan

by babsciano

My husband and I will be arriving in San Salvador in May 2008 and want to travel to Copan. What is the easiest and safest way to travel there?

Thanks,

Check King Quality and Hedman Alas bus companies. the closest you'll probably have to go to San Pedro Sula first and then catch another bus to Copan. make sure you go to the ruins and not to the other town of the same name.

You could also catch a Taca Regional flight to San Pedro Sula.

You can also buy one of the daily newspapers: La Prensa Grafica or Diario de Hoy, and look at the classifieds. There are always tours to Copan to be found!

Travel Tips for San Salvador

Bring US dollars. Starting...

by CLillard

Bring US dollars. Starting January 1, 2001 US dollars is the official currency. The weather is so nice. Try to visit El Salvador when they are not having their rainy season. El Salvador's temperate climate means that beaches can be visited all year around. The Pacific Coast beckons tourists with 200 miles of black and white sand beaches, interesting wave breaks, and an abundance of seafood.

Suchitoto

by benquan

Suchitoto has been trying to sell itself as a cultural town. It has some small art galleries and a pretty good rastaurant with This view you are seeng here.

Alejandro Coto is an excentric individual who is trying to promote this place. You can visit him at his house, though he charges for visits now!

A hermit also used to live not long ago near the lake. you could take a boat and pay him a visit, but he is not there anymore. They say he moved over to Los Angles, Californa! What a change!

Catedral Metropolitana

by MalenaN

The Metropolitan Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of San Salvador. The present cathedral was completed in 1999 and had been built on the site of a previous church.
Between the two bell towers the façade is decorated with colourful artwork by the artist Fernando Llort. The high dome has a blue and yellow checker pattern. Under the dome is the main altar. It is surrounded by paintings made by Andrés García Ibáñez, depicting the life of Christ. Beneath the cathedral is the tomb of Oscar A Romero.

In El Centro, on the north side of Plaza Barrios.

Museo Nacional de Antropología David J Guzmán

by MalenaN

The Museum of Anthropology is situated in Zona Rosa. I went there with Nancy (VT-member conejita71) and her relative Ellie, and we came in a car.
The museum has a great exhibition of artefacts from different periods of the El Salvadorian history and it gives a good insight of the development of the region. There are exhibitions on two floors and in the garden there are pre-Colombian rock-carvings. In another part of the building there was an art exhibition.

Admission for foreigners was 3 dollars and for El Salvadorians 1 dollar (June 2009).
The museum is open Tuesday - Sunday between 9 - 17.

Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo

by mikey_e

The Monument to the Divine Saviour of the World, in a way the namesake of the city of San Salvador, is perhaps the single most identifiable monument of the city and indeed the country as a whole. It is, ironically, in a part of the city that tourists are unlikely to visit, but nonetheless attracts protestors and those looking for a significant start to their activities. The statue was first erected in 1942, although the image of the Christ on top of a globe was originally taken from the tomb of one of the country's presidents during the first half of the 20th Century. In 1986, it was damaged badly during a massive earthquake, requiring a complete reconstruction of the monument. Today, the entire area is once again under construction, as the current mayor has sponsored a remodeling of the plaza to include a lake. Until then, it's not much of a photo opportunity.
