A Recent Review of this tour

Benjamin is a great guide. We appreciated his knowledge of local history and culture, his ability to be flexible and change our itinerary on the fly when he learned more about our interests, and his graciousness as a host. We were also surprised to find that he's an accomplished birder. We recommend him highly. (We also recommend getting a hotel in one of the smaller towns and not in San Salvador -- much nicer.)
