El Salvador

4 years ago

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated countries in Central America. Like many countries around this region of the world, the Mayan civilization inhabited areas of this country including San Andres, capital of a Mayan lordship with supremacy over the other settlements of Valle de Zapotitán between 600 and 900 AD, shown in picture 2. El Salvador has had a history of volcanic activity and earthquakes. Some of the lakes in this country are enclosed by volcanic craters like Lake Coatepeque shown in picture 1. There is great biodiversity in this country, as there is an estimated 500 species of birds, 1,000 species of butterflies, 400 species of orchids, 800 species of trees, and 800 species of marine fish in El Salvador. The Torogoz is El Salvador`s national bird and picture 4 shows an ocelot, doesn`t it look like a cute kitty cat aww. Tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors in the economy. Beaches and nightlife are the main attractions as there are not a lot of nature-themed tourist destinations such as ecotours, or archaeological sites due to its size and urbanization which is a shame.

Would you want to pet the ocelot?
Have you ever visited a lake enclosed by a volcanic crater?
