Guide profile:

In my years of experience as a tour guide in El Salvador I’ve worked as a freelancer

-and still do- with most of the local and foreign tour companies, the Official Tourism Board & Salvadoran Tourism Corporation (MiTur and Corsatur), Diplomatic Corps, NGOs, expats in El Salvador and even corporations and their guests. But most of the cases with independent travelers.

My goal is to provide the most accurate, interesting and up to date information for

Historical, Cultural, Adventure, Flora and Fauna tours.

As part of my commitment with sustainable tourism, I promote no tours that may involve

any kind of animal abuse or child labor and support fair trade.

For your safety I have training in First Aid by Salvadoran Red Cross and always carry a First Aid kit.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

All my services are flexible. I know flexibility is key. You can always make your particular interests, taste, time and hobbies fit into any tour and destination.

There's always something for everybody. From the cultural and historical side, to adventure on the outdoors, leisure time by the beach and even amusement for the children.

El Salvador is small and distances are short in most of the cases and most of roads on tourist destinations are in good shape so timing is almost never a problem.

For your convenience I also designed all tours to make your time and experience easy. That’s why I always include what’s expected and more. All tours and destinations have been planned to offer you the best value for money.

Based on my experience and your interest there’s plenty of optional activities you can pick to make yours an unforgettable one. You can always mix itineraries, activities and routes to make your ideal program. Flexibility is one of the keys to make a trip enjoyable.

Depending on the destination, region or day some optional services may be included in tours upon request such as meals, lodging or transfers. As well different activities or sites of your interest as museums, other archaeological sites such as Cihuatán, near Suchitoto; shopping, scuba diving, mountain biking, zip lining, buggy rides, wild life watching, trekking, etc.

If you have any particular request just let me know and I’ll be glad to fit your interest into the tour you have been dreaming of.

Normally all admission and parking fees mentioned in the description of the tour are included such as Archaeological or National Parks, museums, historical sites, etc. In some places a local guide may be required. Their fee is also included but any voluntary tip is always welcome and appreciated by them. On hikes of 4+ hours a healthy and tasty snack/boxed lunch will be provided. Bottled water is also included for everybody on the tour.

Transportation by tour guide:

All services provided in private vehicles. Depending on the group size larger or smaller vehicles may be used (on occasions provided by a third party but always meeting all standards).
