10 days in El Salvador

We had spent just over a months inland in Guatemala and the departure of Catherine and Michael was a fitting time to also depart the homely and beautiful Guatemala.  We’d heard a fair bit about El Salvador. First from a…
El Salvador foi o país com a temperatura média mais alta até agora. Apesar dos muitos problemas que viveu em um passado recente tem um povo muito receptivo e amável. Também tem uma história pré-hispânica riquíssima, tendo sido habitado por muitas civilizações Mezoamericanas sofisticadas, como os Cuzcatlecs, Lencas e Mayas. Com isso, seguem os números: GPS Km total rodado 911 Km médio/dia 83 Dias com o carro parado 5 Paradas policiais 1* *... <a href="http://zanzando.com/2015/03/16/el-salvador-em-numeros/">Ler mais</a><img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=zanzando.com&blog=66365899&post=2083&subd=zanzandodotcom&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1"/>

Onde Ficamos – El Salvador

Read the original post and follow Zanzando's overland adventures on their website: ZANZANDO.


A exemplo do que aconteceu na Nicaragua, não tínhamos a menor ideia do que esperar de El Salvador. Quando começamos a planejar a viagem reservamos apenas dois dias para cruzar o país e acabamos ficando 11 dias no total. Nossas…
<span><img src="http://i.imgur.com/0im9sCPl.jpg"/><br /><span><i>Posada Luna in El Tunco... perfect parking right between our room and the pool.</i></span><br /><br />We  wound up spending a couple of days at El Tunco trying to acclimatize to  the heat and simply enjoying being in a new country. The heat, though.  Wow. Sitting on the beach wasn’t even pleasant as it felt like hot air  was blowing on the beach with every wave that came ashore. We met up  with a few other riders for dinner, including Nelson, with whom we have  many mutual friends all over the world and whose travels to Alaska we  followed via Facebook. And another Facebook contact of ours, Gabriel,  even came and found us on the beach and took us to a great place for our  first pupusas. <br />Gabriel was really excited to share his country with us… food, history and current events. <br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/pE58v8jl.jpg"/><br /><span><i>My first time riding out of hotel parking... Success!! No broken frames (on the hotel gate or bike) <img border="0" src="http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/clap.gif"/></i></span><br /><br />From  El Tunco, we headed to Santa Ana to check out the small colonial city  and enjoyed a bit of street food. Nelson had offered that we could camp  at his property on Lake Coatepeque which is a volcanic crater lake. The  peace and coolness there was a welcome relief from the heat of the beach  and we <br />really enjoyed falling asleep listening to crickets. <br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/ZDTFNjvl.jpg"/><br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/bkEZCbfl.jpg"/><br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/p6hUUfgl.jpg"/><br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/Lk10fpQl.jpg"/><br /><i>Frog-Man <span><img border="0" src="http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/yelrotflmao.gif"/></span></i><br /><br />We  rode into San Salvador the next day and WOW. It was HOT. There was  traffic. And more traffic. But lots of smiles and waves. Little 150cc  bikes pulling up in traffic to chat and being shocked when they realized  I’m a girl. It was good fun, despite the fact that I was soaking wet. <br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/qGhOHfHl.jpg"/><br /><span><i>Roel needed to replace his shoe-laces... if this guy didn't have something to fit Roel's boots, no one would!</i></span><br /><br />We  rode through the main square and the main market and then gave up and  went to McDonalds to hang out in the air-conditioning before meeting up  with Nelson. <br /><br />Nelson, his friends and family were wonderful and  welcomed us to San Salvador. We spent the night chatting about moto  travels in Alaska, Central America and beyond… Nelson gave us some sweet  personalized t-shirts that will keep us cool while we ride and also  gave us a lot of key advice about the rest of our travels in Central  America.<br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/jgpcidhl.jpg"/><br /><span><i>Incredible lunch with Nelson's family</i></span><br /><br /><img src="http://i.imgur.com/F4pQt9Ol.jpg"/><br /><span><i>It's a good thing I can only ride one bike at a time... Nelson has a verrrrry nice collection <img border="0" src="http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/naughty.gif"/></i></span><br /><br />We  wished we could have spent longer in San Salvador, especially because  Gabriel had invited us to meet his family, but we were keen to cross the  border with David who was planning on crossing sooner-rather-than-later  because of his timeline for getting to South America. <br /><br />We don’t  like timelines. But we like David a lot. And through two border  crossings and several celebratory beers, we have developed a trust and  bond with him that we really value and know is rare to find on the road.  Though it was sad to leave San Salvador earlier than we wanted, we were  excited and less stressed about the crossing knowing we’d be with  someone we feel so comfortable with. <br /></span>
