  1. North of San Salvador, in a protected national park, is the lovely village of Juayua, which is close to the Chorros de la Calera waterfall. There are many other features in the area besides waterfalls. Beautiful rainforests teeming with old trees, monkeys, birds, butterflies, and other indigenous species are also to be found there. It is undoubtedly a hiker's delight.


    You will find a wall with numerous streams pouring down it into a pool that is enclosed by concrete when you arrive at the Chorros de la Calera waterfall. You can actually go and stand under the waterfall and swim in the pools when it isn't too strong. Before the arduous climb uphill to return to Juayua, it is a good idea to take a dip in the glistening clear water.

    A historic church can be found on the path leading to the waterfall, and by visiting it, you can discover more about the history of the locals. It may be a good idea to check out these events and take pleasure in interactions with the locals during the weekends when the people are hosting gastronomic festivals.

  2. One of the top attractions you should see while touring El Salvador is the Tamanique waterfalls, which are located closer to the town of La Libertad, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in El Salvador. You can reach the waterfall via a moderate climb, and the vicinity is home to a number of fun spots. You can start by strolling through the park, then dive into the rocky path and go for a deep swim in the glistening water. Basically, you should expect to have a good time when you travel to this place.Some people may find the hike uphill to be difficult. But you should make sure to descend to the majestic waterfalls and take pictures of the lovely surroundings.


    There is a swimming pool where you can cool off after the hike, and there are also little ledges where you may jump from into the waterfalls. A number of different pools are also there, and they are all worth visiting and swimming in.


    The Tamanique Waterfall is more difficult to reach, so it's likely that you'll have it to yourself, which is a fantastic treat because you may enjoy it privately. Don't be disappointed if the waterfall isn't nearly as dramatic as you had anticipated it would be because it probably is during the wet season. The waterfall never dries up, although it can be a touch slow during the dry season.

  3. One of the waterfalls that is a little off the main road and 45 minutes from La Ruta de Las Flores is Salto de Malacatiupan. You can be sure that you will love your time in the area if you decide to explore these waterfalls. The water from this waterfall is hot because the local volcanic activity has increased the temperature of the earth's crust.


    The Salto de Malacatiupan is the only thermal waterfall in El Salvador, so you shouldn't pass on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity without taking advantage of all the area has to offer. The waterfall, which consists of three cascades, is only a short distance away, and the breathtaking surroundings will enchant you as you approach it. The waterfall is strengthened by cascades that are created by the terrain naturally where Antonio and the River Caliente converge.


    The hot water has created natural pools where you can leisurely take a bath. When you hike to the lower side of the waterfalls, there are strong falls down. As you explore the warm water, you can take additional photos of the spectacular view the steam creates. Due to the salts that the water dissolves in while erupting through the earth's crust, warm to hot water is thought to have therapeutic powers for the skin.


    You can take photos beneath the waterfalls, which are about twelve meters high. It's a good idea to take pictures of the third waterfall because it resembles a monkey. The lush green environment surrounding the waterfall is a result of the cool climate. You should take pictures there because it is the ideal setting.

    The waterfall is about 35 feet high, and two of its tributaries combine to form a sizable pool below it.

  5. It is undoubtedly worthwhile to travel to the charming town of Suchitoto and see the Los Tercios Waterfall if you intend to spend some time in the central highlands of El Salvador, which are located several hours north of San Salvador. This location is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in El Salvador.


    The beautiful rock formation that the water cascades over at the Los Tercios Waterfall is what makes it so well-known, not the water trickling down it. Everyone who visits the Los Tercios Waterfall usually talks more about the rocks than the waterfall itself because the waterfall's face is made up of stone blocks that are partially covered in green algae.


    From Suchitoto town, accessing the Los Tercios Waterfall is simple. After a brief ride in a cab or bus, the climb to the waterfall will take you around an hour. The trail is clear, but it is not appropriate for young children, the elderly, or those who are afraid of heights. You should wear sturdy footwear because, depending on the weather, the path may be slippery and rocky.


    Once you're at the waterfall, it's difficult to believe the rock formations were formed naturally; they appear to be works of art. Depending on the season, it may not always have water flowing down it, so if you visit during the dry season (Nov. through April), you might only see the rocks.

  6. The breathtaking Parque Aquatico El Escuco national park, northwest of the country's capital San Salvador, is where the Cascada El Escuco waterfall is located. Even though it's quite a distance from San Salvador, it's definitely worth the trip if you're going that way or staying along El Salvador's northern Pacific coast.


    The trip to the waterfall is quick after you enter the park, and the trail is lovely. It follows the small river/stream that descends from the waterfall itself and is covered in spectacular local vegetation and fauna. Take your time and use the proper footwear because the path may be damp and slick.


    Half a kilometer off the road, the waterfall is the ideal location for photo opportunities and enjoyment of the verdant surroundings. When you climb to the bottom part of the 80-meter-tall El Escuco waterfall, you will experience a relaxing water spray, especially after a day of hiking or country exploration.


    After a long day, you can take a plunge in the pool and relax in a cool setting. The pools range in depth from one to five meters, making it the ideal setting for a day of enjoyment. This is the place for you to go if you enjoy extreme sports and other high-adrenaline activities.


    After viewing the waterfall, it's nice to go for a hike along the forest trails where you can see monkeys, lovely birds, and amazing butterflies.
