San Salvador and Panchimalco Tour
Aug 2018 • Family
I would like to recommend a tour with Eco Tours Petate. I just had a tour with Rafael this past Friday. We went to see the historical centre of San Salvador and also visit to Panchimalco village and Devil's Door (La Puerta del Diablo). It was very nice to learn many interesting things about the history of El Salvador and the places we visited. Rafael also sent us nice photos, he was taking throughout the day.
