Travel with Children

El Salvador is a very Christian, family-centered society, so children are always welcomed. Some tips:

  • Suchitoto, Ruta de las Flores and Alegría are generally relaxed, family-friendly places to visit.
  • La Costa del Bálsamo has fabulous beaches, but the ocean is dangerous for weak swimmers.
  • Camping is potentially excellent, but some experience is needed as facilities are not great.
  • Buses are often packed full and traveling on public transport with children is challenging in El Salvador.
