Guatemala – El Salvador

For travelers going on to El Salvador, there are several entry points; Las Chinamas, La Hachadura, San Cristobal, or Anguiatu. Ruta Pacifica, CA 2, will take travelers to the southernmost entry point at La Hachadura.

The Pan-American Hwy (CA 1) branches just past Cuilapa into CA 1 and CA 8. CA 8 leads to the border crossing at Las Chinamas, and CA 1 takes travelers to San Cristobal.

There is also an entry point in the north at Anguiatu near the Honduran border. Once you enter El Salvador, it’s a straight drive on CA 1 to Honduras, making it easy to drive through El Salvador in one day.
