San Miguel

The city of San Miguel is the third most important city of El Salvador, located to the east at 138 km from San Salvador on the Pan-American road CA 1, which runs from east to west throughout the country. Another way to get there is through the coastal road (CA 2) which runs parallel to the Pacific Ocean.

The mountain range Tecapa- Chinameca, formed the volcano Chaparrastique.

The city was well known for the amount of garrobos (a kind of iguana) that lived in the city.

San Miguel is where the highest temperatures in El Salvador have been recorded; sometimes reaching the 43 degrees Celsius during summer time.
