Motorcycle Taxi With No Mirrors Is Not Acceptable In Togo - Travel Tip for Transportation in Togo, West Africa.
Travel Tips from professional travelers.
A tip (also called a gratuity) is a voluntary extra payment made to certain service sector workers in addition to the advertised price of the transaction. Such payments and their size are a matter of social custom. Tipping varies among cultures and by service industry. Though by definition a tip is never legally required, and its amount is at the discretion of the patron being served, in some circumstances failing to give an adequate tip when one is expected is a serious faux pas, and may be considered very miserly, a violation of etiquette, or unethical. In some other cultures or situations, giving a tip is not expected and offering one would be considered at best odd and at worst condescending or demeaning. In some circumstances, such as with U.S. government workers, receiving of tips is illegal.

I would like to write about Central America, where I have spent most of the last 26 years, much of it working in Hospitality and Travel, here is a fact sheet on the Beaches of El Salvador, 17 years ago I moved back to El Salvador from Guatemala for personal reasons and there was very little receptive tourism, today all that is changed, El Salvador can even boast its own "Panajachel(A popular ex pat haven and travel destination in Guatemala)by the Sea" El Tunco Beach and finally things are hippong in Colonial Suchitoto, some 48 km. or 31 miles north of the bustling capital city of San Salvadorl where many young ex pats now call home, teaching and working in various fields, from all over the Globe....entonces....now "The Beaches of El Salvador" by Donald Lee

What's so great about El Salvador beaches anyway?
Which is YOUR favourite El Salvador beach?
Tell us about it!
The beaches in La Libertad are considered to be some of the best in the world among surfers!!
And... you can spend a week at the beach without breaking your bank account!
Have a look at some of the amazing and fun things you can do on these beaches...
Surfing: El Salvador beaches are attracting more and more surfers from around the world, yet it's still not crowded at all!
I spent an afternoon watching surfers find the perfect waves, on sunny warm beaches and having a good time with friendly locals without spending a fortune.
Beaches like El Sunzal, El Tunco and others host National and Regional tournaments. El Salvador is really emerging as a "must visit" surfing destination and for good reason!
2011 Update -
ISA Surfing Championship being held in Punta Roca El Salvador!!
Scuba Diving and Snorkelling: White sanded beaches are perfect for diving and snorkeling.
It's such an amazing experience to see rock formations, ship wrecks and the only coral reef in the America's Pacific region!
Los Cóbanos is a favourite place for snorkeling, but... how about diving in some of the crater lakes like Lake Ilopango and Coatepeque?
Fishing: El Salvador's prime coastal fishing waters offer a wide variety of sport fishing adventures for the experienced and less experienced fisher.
Shore, deep water, reef
fishing, try it all, it's all here. There are several catch and release fishing tournaments held in El Salvador.
A very popular tournament is The Presidential Challenge held in Bahia del Sol Hotel and Marina in Costa del Sol.
Kayaking: Another exciting way to explore the beaches, river mouths and bays.
Paddle your way through mangroves at the Jiquilisco and Barra de Santiago bays or the estuary at Costa del Sol.
Kayaking the volcanic crater lakes is also a great experience, but you can also take a boat tour and just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
You sure end this tour feeling great and invigorated by the surroundings.
You can also do some kayaking at the Royal Decameron Salinitas, it's included as part of your stay.
Where to stay?
The options for accommodation are endless... You can stay at a hostel
or do you prefer a
or even an
all inclusive resort!
Want to enjoy all the comforts of home? You can also try a beach rental in El Salvador, the prices are very reasonable as well. https://www.facebook.com/PenaAzulLoungeSalinitas?fref=ts email@example.com
So just take a break from the hustle and bustle from the city and enjoy a few days at the beach.
And did you know that some of the beaches in El Salvador are a haven for sea turtle nests?
Read about the conservation efforts being put forth to save these wonderful creatures.
Discovering this new destination in Central America is a fascinating experience.
Come and see for yourself why so many people love El Salvador beaches!!
