Its name still evokes images of the brutal civil war fought throughout the 1980s, but the bloodshed is long over - the volcanic landscape remains the most turbulent aspect of El Salvador. Friendly locals like to chat, diverting your gaze from the gangs and refugees to beautiful broad valleys. El Salvador has a tropical climate with only two seasons: verano (dry season) from November to April, and invierno (wet season) from May to October.
