Ruta Del Golfo

Cruce del Golfo - Introduction

The Ruta del Golfo is not only the fastest, but also the most scenic way to travel between El Salvador and Nicaragua. Up until now the only connection (other than by airplane) between El Salvador and Nicaragua was a 10 hour bus ride, crossing borders with Honduras. But now you can take the boat from El Salvador to Nicaragua, or the other way around. The trip takes 2 to 8 hours (depending on your itinerary) and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Gulf of Fonseca, a hardly traveled yet stunning part of Central America.

Boat schedule and prices

---- UPDATES ----

It's that time of the year that the Golfo de Fonseca has it's North Winds which can be very strong and we inform to all of our clients, that the stop on an island is not available because the weather makes the on and off of the boat very difficult and we want to ensure that all our passengers arrive safely to port.

Our regular service day will change from tuesday and friday to, tuesday and saturday. We can always offer friday to cross the Golfo de Fonseca but, the service will be available only in private.
