Our daughter is studying abroad in San Salvador for 4 months (Aug-Dec). She is living near UCA in the Antiguo Cuscatlan
La Libertad. We have the opportunity to visit her over Thanksgiving. They are suggesting the Alicante hotel nearby for our stay. I would like to spend some extra time and see more of the country but my hubby (who does speak fluent Spanish and has had wonderful friends from El Salvador) is afraid I will be very unhappy with the poverty, pollution, etc. Our daughter has only been there two weeks and she has been won over by the very friendly and wonderful people and the beautiful countryside. Could you please suggest some options for maybe up to one week? We are not beach people. Suchitoto sounds interesting and Ruta de la Flores and the coffee plantations. Would love hotel recommendations or whether you think we should do day trips from San Salvador. Thank you!!!!
