El Salvador is a land of gentle people, superb beaches, beautiful lakes, magnificent volcanoes and delicious seafood. Visitors consider it to be the seafood capital of the Americas. Along the country’s Pacific Coast are miles of beautiful beaches, white sand and palm trees. In the high mountains, the lakes and the volcanoes are impressive.
