El Salvador

The Land of Volcanoes

The Basics

El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America but it is a country with a beautiful landscape, volcanoes, black sand beaches, cloud forests, mountains you can hike, warm-hearted people, a tropical climate and hot, rainy weather. El Salvador's beaches are considered surfing heaven with uncrowded waters and world class breaks.

Sub cultures and culture change

Sub cultures

Half of the people live in the countryside. They are poor and don't have electricity or running water. The government offers free education up to the ninth grade.

Culture change

Men and women had the traditional gender roles where the man went to work and the woman stayed home and did all the cleaning and took care of the kids. Today more middle-class and upper-class women now go to work and are increasingly becoming doctors, dentists, or teachers.
