The largest body of water in El Salvador, Lago Suchitlán presents visitors with a rich display of bird and fish life. The lake was created artificially in 1976, after the power generating damn Cerron Grande was built. Take a boat ride around the lake and head toward an island in the middle as you sail over the calm water. The island houses hundreds of nesting birds who fly about during the day.

  • Input is paid $1 per adult and 1 for parking, half of the parking lot is under the shade of the trees and the other half in the Sun. The restaurant is neat, but live music is very strong, not can chat with the family without shouting loudly, dn Gil restaurant or something service is lousy, it took much to deliver a couple of soups, and prices through the roof in comparison to what they offer. The boat ride was pleasant, we visited the hermit Island, and we climb up to the lookout point and then back, the trip cost$ 25 for our family group.
