Teach English and Social Justice to Adults in El Salvador
Teach English and Social Justice using popular education.
El Salvador is a beautiful country with many attractions close by. The CIS employees and homestay families are both happy to help you find things to do in your spare time that interest you most.
Some of the highlights include:
The 'Ruta de las Flores' or the flower route, which is located in a mountainous coffee area and is known for hikes, waterfalls and crafts.
The beaches of La Libertad: A string of beaches about an hour away from San Salvador, known for surfing and tourism. El Tunco beach specifically is a hotspot for nightlife and surf lessons
El Boqueron is a volcano on the edge of San Salvador with a place to walk near the top of the crater and has great views. On the way up the volcano, there are many beautiful restaurants with great views and also an eco-park for nature walks.
Volcanoes Santa Ana and Izalco are great hikes. They are in the same area and hikes leave from the same park. Izalco is a steep uphill climb on gravel, and Santa Ana has a breathtaking view of a turquoise sulfur lake from the top.
In addition to these, there are many beautiful other places. Some people even zip over to Guatemala for the weekend!
