Guests looking for new and interesting places to visit in Central America will find that San Salvador is a privileged destination in this area. Its commercial importance, since the time of the Spanish conquest, has encouraged prosperous development in the city, both in terms of the economy, art and culture. Hotels in San Salvador have adapted to demanding circumstances in order to provide visitors with accommodation where the services radiate style and exclusivity.
The highlights of San Salvador can be found around the city’s old town. Visitors will discover the essence of the city founded by Spanish colonialists at the beginning of the 16ᵗʰ century. The city spreads out from its historic centre towards the neighbourhoods of El Calvario, La Vega, Candelaria, San Sebastián, Concepción, San José and Santa Lucía.
The oldest vestiges of this thriving history can be found in El Calvario, a 17ᵗʰ century church that has seen many reconstructions over the years. Unquestionably the most iconic image of the city is the Divine Saviour of the World Monument, a national symbol that reminds visitors of the origins of the country’s name.
Within reach of both ocean and mountains, hotels in El Salvador’s capital serve as an excellent base for day trips to nearby towns and villages in the foothills, such as Los Planes de Renderos, the picturesque town of Palchimanco and of course, the El Boquerón volcano, which looms impressively in the distance over the city. Guests can also set out on longer excursions, such as the ‘Ruta de las Flores’ tour through stunning villages, or immerse themselves in the Costa del Bálsamo.
The Salvadoran capital is not only a prominent tourist destination, but also the most important economic and financial centre of the country, making San Salvador the ideal place for business trips. The Zona Rosa and cafeterias in Colonia Escalón have sprung up to answer increasing demand for dining and shopping from business travellers.
Guests travelling on business tend to be very demanding about the condition and features of their accommodation. The Barceló San Salvador hotel is one of their favourite choices as it offers a wide range of services and state-of-the-art facilities. In addition to top quality rooms with an internet connection, air conditioning, safety systems and 24-hour room service, the hotel has a large array of services and facilities specially adapted for guests.
Meeting rooms are especially convenient for business travellers, as are the transfer services to the city centre, the airport and business districts such as the World Trade Center and the Centro Financiero Gigante, as all of these are basic necessities for those travelling to San Salvador on business.
