In eastern El Salvador 75 mi/120 km east of San Salvador, San Miguel is near the picturesque 6,994-ft/2,132-m San Miguel Volcano.
There is little in the way of sights in San Miguel, but the town itself is intriguing, with bustling street markets, nice parks and a cathedral from the 1700s.
It is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Another 10 mi/16 km east, on the border near Honduras and the Golfo de Fonseca, the small town of La Union is rarely seen by visitors. Like San Miguel, there's not much to see, but this fishing village is very charming. Add a day there if time allows.
