El Salvador is a country in Central America. Here's the map. Its name comes from the Spanish for "The Savior", the person who saves, referring to Jesus Christ.
Lying along the Pacific ring of fire, there is significant tectonic activity including frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. There are only 2 seasons; the dry season (mid October to mid May) when it hardly ever rains and the wet season, (mid May to mid October).
Los Cobanos (situated on the Pacific Ocean) is one of the most popular diving areas (80 Km from San Salvador). During the summer, and with the right conditions, you can see Morays eels, Angel fish, Eagle mantas, Green turtles, lobsters, etc.
If you want to dive in the winter season, why not try crater diving at Coatepeque or Illopango lakes?
Coatepeque Lake - surrounded by Cerro Verde and the Santa Ana and Izalco volcanoes, dive in this beautiful crater lake. Fish species include Catfish, Guapote and Zebra fish.
Ilopango Lake: surrounded by dramatic cliffs, Ilopango lake is the largest lake of El Salvador, with a couple of islands and dramatic cliffs. Volcanic nodules can be seen, which are lava rocks that freezed the moment they touched the water.
