Full description
Suchitoto preserves the essence of El Salvador's colonial architecture. It is one of the few areas in the country where cobblestone streets are still in use. Santa Lucia Church, built in 1853, remains a major attraction for its architecture and historical significance. But the many art galleries, Ruins’ Theater, and House of Crafts also are among the wide variety of places to visit and see. You can learn the traditional method of dying cloth items with indigo. Lastly, return to San Salvador to learn more about the colonial houses, rich in tradition, and enjoy a more panoramic view of Lake Suchitlán. In El Salvador’s rural areas, you will find natural and historical treasures, and numerous opportunities for exploration.

Had the same guide the day before so he had suggested a visit to an eco indigo farm nearby. I work with textile printing myself so it fit perfectly. Since there are not so many tourists in the country, it is possible to customize the content as desired and needs.

The lake well, the beautiful landscapes and the picturesque town but the guide quite improvised.
