Lush tropical rainforests, remnants of ancient civilizations, diverse animal species and spectacular scenery are scattered throughout this volcano-filled, earthquake-prone region. Although El Salvador is known as the Land of Volcanoes, that doesn’t stop natives and expatriates from adoring its natural treasures and rich culture. It is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. It was first inhabited by a succession of Mesoamerican nations until the Spanish conquered it in1525. El Salvador gained independence from Spain in 1821 and then from the Central American Federation in 1839. While the late 19th and mid 20th centuries were plagued by ongoing political instability, the country has since seen significant political and economic growth. It now has the fourth largest economy in the region and its once coffee-dependent economy has diversified by focusing on tourism and opening its trade and financial connections. While the UK has maintained strong ties to El Salvador, it reopened its embassy in 2012 after nine years of closure. Efforts on both ends to promote a bilateral relationship are expected to lead to improvements in trade and investment, diplomacy, security and human rights as well as cheaper courier costs to El Salvador.
El Salvador shares borders with Honduras and Guatemala and it is the only Central American country without a Caribbean coastline. The country also lies in the Pacific Ring of Fire and, as a result, has a history of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Improved relations have given way to opportunities such as the Imperial College London’s efforts to provide El Salvador’s remote regions with earthquake-proof buildings. The country’s capital and largest city, San Salvador, is home to about 18% of its 6,141,350 population. El Salvador’s infrastructure requires regular maintenance and significant updates due to tectonic activity. The country has two main highways and several thousand paved roadways, several seaports along the Pacific Ocean and two international airports that do allow for fast parcel delivery in El Salvador. The country uses a four-digit postcode with the first number representing a region, the second a department and the last two a delivery area.
A growing tourism industry, expanding foreign relations and strengthened ties to UK are helping draw more attention to El Salvador.
