San Salvador is the capital city of El Salvador, with a comfortable average temperature of 23C all year round. As part of a tropical region, it only has two seasons. The dry season is fairly dry and goes from mid-October to April. The rainy season, from May to October, is characterized by monsoons that can last for a couple of days. Culture-wise, this Central American country shares a similar history of Spanish colonization with the rest of Latin America, hence, the main spoken language is Spanish. In the capital city, it does not take too long to appreciate the Spanish colonial-style architecture in churches, city hall, districts, and other buildings. Although the astonishing beaches and their waves have helped to grow this country’s popularity as a perfect surfing destination, there is certainly much more to experience and enjoy in the capital city. As a native Salvadoran and resident of San Salvador for most of my life, I think the following list of things to experience, see and eat make a good set of options if you are visiting this lovely city.
Beloved as much as pupusas, the plantain patties can come with milk or red beans filling. Coffee is a national pride.
Located at the west of the city center square is the National Palace of El Salvador.
Cheese and beans pupusas at Antiguo Cuscatlan with tomato sauce and pickled cabbage are the main traditional dish in Salvadoran cuisine.
This landscape is less than an hour away from San Salvador.
Since I moved to Asia from El Salvador, a few years ago, I started living my dream of becoming a travel photographer to discover the amazing cultures of the world as a backpacker, one photo at a time. I have a great appetite for food adventures, writing, handcraft design, and, obviously, coffee.
Currently, I live in Taiwan and enjoy photographing life in Taipei and writing about budget traveling inside and out of this beautiful island.
Professional wise, I got an industrial engineer degree and an MBA. Experienced in business engineering consultancy, education, and entrepreneurship.
