"TACA Vacaciones" packages are designed by wholesale tour operators from the countries of the region, under an "all inclusive" model: air ticket, hotel, ground transportation and in some cases, food and tours.
"The strategy fosters interregional tourism, as it is available on all Central American countries, with the exception of Panama", published newspaper Elsalvador.com. "All the packages have the requirement of a minimum three day stay or a Saturday, but these conditions might change with tactical promotions executed by TACA and wholesalers".
Fifteen companies in total are visiting known major tourist attraction locations for their promotion.
The Minister of Tourism, Mario Salinas, said that it is a great opportunity to show the country as a new destination for the Russian market.

The Ministry of Tourism signed a cooperation agreement with TACA airlines which includes vacation packages, advertising actions and marketing cooperation.
Daniel Choto wrote in Elsalvador.com: "They will look to develop new products with the vacation packages so that tourists can have a travel plan which includes specific destinations, lodging and routine to be carried out which will be done through the TACA-Holidays Program in the United States, Central America, Mexico and South America. Marketing actions will include product creation, event participation and attendance of international vacation and business tourism fairs in which El Salvador is seen as having a lot of potential.”
Starting December 15, TACA will have three weekly flights between the capital cities of Paraguay and Peru, with connections to all the other destinations of the airline.
Paraguayan aeronautical authorities announced last Saturday that the Peruvian airline Air Transport of the American Continent (TACA) will resume flights between Lima and Asuncion starting on December 15.
