Cities Remarks
San Salvador is the capital, Universidad Evangelica is located in it. The Economic district is located mostly in Colonia Escalon, while the wealthiest part of the city is is Antiguo Cuscatlan. Universidad Dr. Jose Matias Delgado is located inbetween Santa Tecla and Antiguo Cusctlan

Santa Ana is one of the largest cities in the country, which is full of history and a more colonial type of neighborhood, students will love the more tranquil and slower paced environment while also enjoying its proximity to beautiful nature wonders.

El Salvador Is amazing as most distances are short. A trip form San Salvador to El Tunco beach or Surf City is a mearly 30 minute car ride. From the top of the Ilamatepec Volcano to the beautiful turquoise waters of the Coatepeque Lake is a 15 minute car drive.you may climb a volcano on the day, and watch the sunset in a paradisiac beach, everything is close. distances ar short but beauty is infinite in our small tropical wonder.
