It’s best to travel with eyes wide open, which is something a recent guest on TravelPulse Radio encourages regarding a destination you may not have previously considered, and when it comes to El Salvador that would be an enormous shame.
Hosts Tim Wood and Barry Kaufman welcome TravelPulse senior editor Michael Schottey onto the eighth episode of TravelPulse Radio.
If you want to slide on over to Schottey’s portion of the conversation, fast forward to about 55 minutes into the show, which is posted below.
Schottey was fortunate enough to take advantage of an invitation from the El Salvador Ministry of Tourism for a trip that offered a spotlight on what seems to be a budding tourist destination bursting with vitality, beauty and opportunity for the intrepid traveler.
Or, as Schottey puts things at the beginning of the segment, “One of the most underrated tourism destinations on the continent.”
The senior editor is careful to note the decades of tumult and continued poverty that envelop the country.
However, it’s important as travel enthusiasts to embrace all the positives from a location. In the case of El Salvador, Schottey proclaims it may just be a, “sneakily great destination,” perfect for adventure junkies and anyone with an affinity for nature.

This is, after all, a destination that boasts more volcanoes than any other western hemisphere country when considering overall landmass, according to Schottey.
Travelers have 26 volcanoes and all the ecology that comes with such an expanse to enjoy and experience.
The entire conversation will have you yearning for a trip to a country you hardly considered prior to the episode. Now, thanks to some intriguing stories, it may just be a bucket list item.
