Very helpful office with lots of info on things to do around the city and the country. As for the person complaining about the info not being offered in English, I wonder if you realize that you are in a Spanish speaking country, that there are hundreds of languages in this world, and that it does not revolve around us...

Mayan ruins at Tazumal, San Andrés and Joya de Cerén (all not too far away from the capital city of San Salvador), are definitively among the main places not to miss at El Salvador. I would also add the Coatepeque lake as a main sightseeing attraction. The city of San Salvador is... More

My wife and I are very comfortable traveling throughout El Salvador, but even so, we were excited to get great ideas from MiTur (Ministry of Tourism/Ministero de Turismo). Most importantly, when we had friends and family from the U.S.A. come to visit and we took them on tours, MiTur provided -- at no cost (we provided food and tipped them... More

I was hoping to see some places, but the tours I was interested in were only available on weekends and I was only there Monday through Thursday.

I went to El Salvador in my last business trip and and found about a block a way from my hotel a handmade soap shop.

It is a total shame that the information is not in English. If you are trying to get people to come to your country you should have information available for them to review.
