TO THOSE INDEPENDENT TRAVELERS WHO SPEAK SPANISH

Turismo Interno

**When Central Americans do travel within the region,

usually on weekends or holiday periods, they travel

with family members in large groups. This is called

'turismo interno' - internal tourism. There are

many fine local guides, tour operators and

driver-owners in El Salvador that advertise locally

and will take visitors on tour with advance notice at

reasonable prices. If you speak Spanish you are able

to save a lot of money rather than go with the more

expensive inbound tourism outfits, as well as meeting

and travelling with locals, at times the locals may

invite you to their home after the tour, especially in

El Salvador or Nicaragua ! The local tour operators

advertise in the classified sections of the daily

newspapers and on Spanish language local Internet

portals.During holiday periods El Salvadorian

operators conduct excursions in Mexico , Guatemala ,

Honduras, Nicaragua , Costa Rica and some go as far as

Panama, prices and quality vary so check around,

always ask to inspect the vehicle first and inquire

with local friends as to which companies are

reliable or contact writer of this bloq.



Many locals in El Salvador often travel weekends to

make pilgrimages to Catholic Shrines in Antigua and

Escuintla, Guatemala, etc. Religion is practiced here

in El Salvador by a large majority of people, Roman

Catholic or Evangelical, be polite and respectful of

other's beliefs and opinions at all times.

Check the Clasificados of "El Diario de Hoy" and "La
Prensa Grafica" (Turismo y Viajes)for excursions via
Bus, Coaster or Microbus, except holiday periods,
excursions usually depart only on weekends.

During the week, avoiding popular tourist beaches,
there are many exotic beaches you can have all to
yourself then visit the mountains on the weekends.

Budget lodgings may often be found in the Clasificados
as well.
