El Salvador is a tiny country that borders Guatemala and Honduras and is the only Central American nation that doesn’t have an Atlantic coastline.
It’s Pacific Ocean beaches and mountainous landscape, however, make it ideal for extreme sports enthusiasts but not necessarily for business, and so information on on UK trade with El Salvador is relatively limited to say the least – the US is far and away El Salvador’s largest trading partner.
As far as exports go, offshore assembly products, coffee, sugar, shrimp, textiles and chemicals are the biggest hitters, while raw materials, consumer and capital goods, fuel, food, petroleum and electricity are the order of the day as far as imports go.
So if you’re thinking of doing business in El Salvador you’ll need a cost and time effective conference call provider – so here’s how to set up a call in a few simple steps…

Where is El Salvador?
The smallest country in Central America, El Salvador has a Pacific coastline to the east and is bordered by Guatemala to the west and Honduras to the north and east. It is also the only Central American nation without an Atlantic coastline.
What’s the best time to call El Salvador from the UK?
San Salvador is around 5,500 miles from London and flight times are around 13-and-a-half hours hours – a bit far for a business lunch.
And El Salvador is eight hours behind GMT (seven in summertime), so it’s probably best to make your business calls in the afternoon or early evening to fit in with local business times.
