Follow the Ruta de las Flores

SAL06_RutaDeLasFlores_Picassa_Cordillera_De_Apaneca

Visit charming colonial villages on a scenic voyage through the beautiful countryside of El Salvador's coffee-growing region.

Known as the Ruta de las Flores ('Flower Route') because of the explosion of blooms that appear every winter, this colourful journey passes through quaint villages within the country's most dramatically mountainous region. Highlights include Nahuizalco with its wicker crafts, the pretty mountain town of Juayua  where an artistic atmosphere prevails and murals line the streets, and finally the colonial gem of Ataco.

Along the way are plenty of panoramic views to savour, as well as a stop for a tour of a coffee farm with a beautiful old manor house and mill.
