coffee culture, waterfalls, lagoons and delicious food
This is one of the favorite places for foreigners when visiting El Salvador. Ruta de las Flores is a series of small, colloquial, old towns founded because of the massive coffee growth and trade of the past century. The road between the towns is very attractive too, with nature all around and with scenes of El Salvador country life. perfect to do if your cruise ship stop in acajutla dock.
One of the top attractions here is the Ataco Town, which is a small coffee town with a beautiful church and a very fresh and small central park. Several Cafes and restaurants all around the park. Shopping is also an option in the souvenir street. There are many options for accomodation and for eating good food. Coffee is the major product here and you should try it in any of the nice cafes on the road. Coffee tours, waterfall tours, hiking tours, buggy tours, hot springs and many other activities to do here.
