Car hire in El Salvador gives you the chance to get out and about and explore its attractions for yourself.

Experiencing El Salvador

Although it's only small - a sixth the size of England - El Salvador has over 300 rivers and numerous lakes, several of them inside volcanic craters. There are several active volcanoes that sometimes put on spectacular displays, and there are many more mountains, with the centre of the country high up on a plateau. Besides the coast, the tropical plains are thick with exotic vegetation, including many species of wild orchids. Brightly coloured butterflies are everywhere and lucky visitors driving through these areas may spot monkeys, armadillos, tapirs, iguanas or ocelots.

Many tourists are first attracted to this country by its beaches, but relatively few of these have been colonised by the usual holiday companies, so it's possible to drive around and find quiet, secluded spaces where you can relax undisturbed on the sand or swim in warm Pacific waters. There are spectacular Mayan ruins at Joya de Cerén, San Andrés and Tazumal that should not be missed. Huge waterfalls and hot springs add to El Salvador's appeal, and parts of the coastline generate amazing waves much loved by surfers.

Getting around

Most people enter El Salvador through Aeropuerto Internacional Comalapa, by road from Guatemala or Honduras, or by boat through the Golfo de Fonseca port of La Unión. Once you're in El Salvador, driving provides the easiest way to get around, even in urban areas. San Salvador is a city with a lot going on but as its attractions are quite spread out you'll find it much easier with a car to get between them. The speed limit is 40kph in urban areas and 90kph elsewhere. Although traffic in San Salvador can be hard going in rush hour, local drivers are usually laid back and friendly, making it a relaxing place to spend time on the road.
