El Salvador's sleepy Pacific beach town had a boring reputation, but we found our six days there to be quite relaxing.
Our first stop in El Salvador made for a bit of a learning curve, but we came to find that riding public transit is much easier and actually more fun than it looks.
With its colorful walls and cobblestone streets, our last stop in the beautiful country of Guatemala served as a great bon voyage before heading into El Salvador.
We had no intentions of getting stuck anywhere along the way, but then we met San Pedro La Laguna and fell head over heels in love.
We had read and heard from other travelers that San Marcos was super hippie, to the point where a lot of people we chatted with said it was too hippie for their liking. Us, being Oregonians who appreciate a chilled out music festival from time to time, thought that maybe it would be just hippie enough for us to enjoy. Turns out this place is really hippie.
The first half of our three-and-a-half weeks on Lake Atitlán provided some much needed R&R.
We had high hopes for Livingston but unfortunately it was a mixed bag.
The island of Flores is small enough to walk around in 15 minutes, but we definitely got our steps in.
We came, we saw, we went slow.
Tulum kicked our asses but at least the food was there to nurse us back to health.
