Route of the Flowers Tour

After picking you up from your accommodation in San Salvador we will leave the city behind and head to the Ruta de las Flores (Flowers Route). This is the most famous stretch of road in the country and is known as the Route 66 of El Salvador.

During the trip we will travel along the picturesque road, passing through colorful villages surrounded by nature. Our first stop on the Flowers Route will be Juayúa, where you will learn the fascinating story behind the name. At around 3,300 feet high up, we will explore the charming historic center of this small village, in which the church of Santa Lucía and the parish church of Cristo Negro stand out.

Then we hit the road again, this time to Nahuizalco, where we will spend an hour. You will have the opportunity to meet some of the few people who still speak the indigenous Nawat language. We will also discover the historic weaving and hat-making traditions that are still practiced today.

Apaneca will welcome us with its colorful houses, and around the idyllic central village square, you will meet the locals and browse the wonderful handicraft shops

After around one hour in Apaneca, we will drive on to our last destination on the Ruta de las Flores: Ataco. Here, at 3,900 feet above sea level, you will encounter colorful street murals and a vibrant central park. For a little more than an hour you will immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of this area, and have the opportunity to try the delicious local artisan coffee.
