El Salvador is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. It covers just over 21,000 square kilometres and has a population of around 6,400,000 people. The country's largest city, also its capital, is San Salvador. Santa Ana and San Miguel are also important cultural and commercial centers. El Salvador borders the Pacific Ocean on the south and the countries of Guatemala to the west and Honduras to the north and east. Its easternmost region lies on the coast of the Gulf of Fonseca, opposite Nicaragua. El Salvador has the third largest economy in the region, behind Costa Rica and Panama, when comparing GDP.

Outside our office door
El Salvador's beaches and nightlife are major tourist attractions. Surfing has become an increasingly popular pastime on Salvadoran beaches in recent years. We’d highly recommend travelling from Metapan to El Poy to see El Salvador's spectacular scenery. Pupusas (corn or rice tortillas stuffed with cheese and beans) and refreshing horchata (local drink made of rice and nuts) are our favorite things to eat and drink.
