Hey guys... I just want to share a little bit about my country :p



Welcome to El Salvador!
El Salvador is the smallest country in America (exculding the caribbean islands) yet, very impressive

Located in Central America next to Guatemala and Honduras. With a population of approximately 5.8 million people, it is the most densely populated nation in Central America. The area was originally called by the Pipil tribe "Cuzhcatl", in Spanish "Cuzcatlan", which in Nahuatl means "the land of precious things."

Info:
Independece from Spain: September 15, 1821
Total area: 8,123 square miles (21,040 km²) (Smaller than the US state Massachusetts)
Calling code: 503 (in case you wanna call me lol :lol: )

Map: (I'm from Ahuachapán)


Well, too much, blah, blah, so here are some pics... first of all here is the monument that represents our country (by its name "The savior of the world" El Salvador del Mundo)



Ohhh yeah baby, our lovely but disastrous VOLCANOES!!! (El Salvador is fulled of volcanoes, there are around 25 volcanoes, of course not all are active, or we'll be dead by this point. You can see at least one volcano from almost everywhere in the country hahaha :D :( Thanks to them, San Salvador (the capital) is called "El Valle de las Hamacas" (The Valley of the Hammocks) due to its constant seismic activity.



Here you can see three together, the green one is not active anymore, but the other to are, the first one is called Izalco Vocano and you can climb it, I did it once and it feels good when coming down but is awful climbing up :D

El Voqueron






Mayan Ruins
We also, have some Mayan ruins, but not as many as Guatemala and Mexico.

Tazumal

Joya de Ceren




Beaches!
Ohhh yeah, I love beaches!!! too bad we don't have a caribbean coast :( any way... El Salvador is kinda famous for its uncrowed surfing hotspots. Big waves, babe...




Thanks to our volcanoes, many of the beaches have black sand...


wanna get all dirty? take a look :lol:

Lakes:
Coatepeque Lake is beautiful! It was a volcano before, but with time it filled up with water, and now is a beautiful crater lake with crystaline water...



Suchitlan lake

Another ex-volcano, Lago de Alegria, people say that the sulfur water serves as medicine or something...





Waterfalls!
Los Tercios


Los Chorros de La Calera

I have many friends from El Salvador and I love to eat Salvadorean food. Back in '97, close family friends invited us to a Salvadorean reasturant and got us acquainted to food. I love eating pupusas, chicharron con yuca frita, and my favorite drinks are the Savadorean horchata and the ensalada. You have an amazing country and I wish to visit there sometime.

Hi Mike!!! you're right, El Salvador uses the US dollar as its currency since 2001 before it was called "Colón(es)"
