Lago Suchitlán, Suchitoto

3.6
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Suchitoto
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.

    A pleasant boat trip visiting the Lake and seeing birds like cormorants, pelicans and herons, all in a relaxed setting and without large crowds. The feeling of being alone in the Lake is great.

    This Lake has disappointed me. The water was dirty and covered to a large extent of the Lake with grass. Excursions with boat offer little variety, take a long time and it is progressing only slowly. It is under the umbrella of stuffy hot. So I can not recommend this trip.

    Nice place, if they travel to suchitoto need to know Lake Suchitlan, for a small amount of money can go for a ride in boat and if they are lucky may coincide with the ferry.
