El Salvador

 First stop around the world is my country El Salvador. Republica de El Salvador (The Saviors Republic a.k.a Pulgarcito de America) Is located in Central America and is by far the smallest country in the region, and it borders Honduras and Guatemala. The weather is tropical and humid even when it rains. I unfortunately haven't visited in a very long time and can't remember much of it.

But 'Lonely Planet' sums it up pretty good check out what they have to say about it at

"El Salvador sneaks up on you: in lefty lounge bars in San Salvador, at sobering museums and war memorials, and along lush cloud-forest trails; it's a place of remarkable warmth and intelligence, made all the more appealing for being so unexpected. Travelers tend to skip El Salvador, wooed by marquee destinations such as Guatemala and Costa Rica, and unnerved by stories of civil war and gang violence. But the war ended almost 20 years ago, and crime, while serious, is almost exclusively played out between rival gangs; tourists are virtually never involved. And though El Salvador has fewer protected areas than its neighbors, you get them practically to yourself – including pristine forests, active volcanoes and sparkling lakes. The only place you might find a crowd is on Punta Roca, El Salvador’s most famous surfing spot – it happens to be one of the best right point breaks in the world, yet is a ghost town compared to lesser swells in Costa Rica and elsewhere. And when it comes to cities, none in Central America is smarter or cooler than San Salvador, with first-rate universities, museums and galleries, a vibrant bar and live-music scene.
So there you have it, if your trying to find the best waves to surf book your next flight to El Salvador and make sure to enjoy delicious traditional 'Pupusas' curtido and red sauce etc... 

Active Volcano
El Salvador's highest peak, the Santa Ana (Ilamatepec) Volcano, erupted in 2005.
If you want to get your grove on while surfing check out these popular sites in El Salvador
El Zonte, Sunzal, and La Libertad

Pupusas anyone? So basically Pupusas are like Tortillas except better you might say Tortillas 2.0

I don't remember much but i do remember that during Holy Week the locals would do these beautiful decorative carpets out of sand or flowers (guess its our Rose Parade lol) 

Thank you fro traveling along with me.

Buenas Noches Salvatruchos
