Come visit El Salvador:

We have great weather to spend at the beach to surf or just relax. Also we have big mountains to hike on. Finally we have many historical places to visit such as Pompeii of the Americas which showed the Maya's way of life, like what they ate, what crops they grew, and their social structure.
