El Roble Hostal, Playa San Diego, El Salvador - Two swimming pools,volleyball,basketball,table tennis,poker and a raft of board games,plus a full bar and great food makes for a wonderful hostel experience.Short walk to a quiet,7km stretch of sandy beach and only 5 minutes from the best surf in Central America.Tours to lively cities and colonial towns,volcanoes and lakes and hikes through tropical,mangrove or cloud forest...El Roble is your best introduction to El Salvador....a beautiful,small country,full of friendly locals and fantastic experiences. Get here before the crowds do!!

This was a day out at Panchimalco, a Nahuat village in El Salvador. These guys are practising for the upcoming Cofradia de la Palma, an annual festival in which the villagers adorn everything from churches and houses to themselves with flowers and palms, and dance, while fireworks are lit on all sides.....including one guy who dresses as a bull, with headmask shooting rockets from it, and chases the people through the streets.

The festival is on May 3rd...check this site for more photos then
