Suchitoto: For Pure Culture, Visit Here

Posted on 19 March 2019 by admin (0)

Suchitoto is the cultural capital of El Salvador. Its colonial vibe with cobbled streets and blue walls makes it seem time has not passed around.

As our BNB was near Centro Arte Para La Paz, we started off our trip with visiting it. You can also find affordable hostels near Centro Arte Para La Paz apart from some decent BNBs and hotels. We went to a steakhouse after that. In the evening, we headed to Lago Suchitlan which is a man-made lake. My kids were delighted to migrated birds and other species. On the way back, we interacted with pedestrians and local shop owners. One lady was generous enough to welcome us in her blue painted house. She demonstrated a cigar rolling process for us. She told she sells one for 10 cents each. At night we hit a blue and jazz bar.

Next day we visited Los Tercios waterfall. You are advised to wear shoes to be comfortable while climbing to the waterfall. We hiked there apart from enjoying the scenic beauty. We observed the hexagonal rocks which were formed out of ancient lava flow years back. We saw how the indigo industry is still present in formations of Suchitoto. In dinner, we tried Pupusas which a traditional Salvadorian delicacy of Suchitoto. It is basically corn tortillas filled with meat, cheese, and veggies and is served with salad. We also tried Chicha, an alcoholic drink made of corn.

We visited Suchitoto Central Park. Parque San Martin has a beautiful garden, our kids Last day we had breakfast at Museo del cafe and took our flight back.

Its colonial architecture makes you fall in love with this place. If you are planning a visit, it is better to visit in February as, during the entire month of February, Suchitoto celebrates Art in various domestic galleries and locate artists.
