  • Located two hours from San Salvador. On roads with many turns, irregular and solitary. Tourist information and the police presence is poor. There is a lot of both cultural and tourist potential. However, not given the support and the importance that should be. He is needed to improve safety, given that in the environment is perceived fear of crime. This prevents progress to their locals and benefit from the natural wealth. The Lake is a beauty, beginning with its Nahuat name, Suchitlán = place of bird flower. An artificial lake created by the creation of the Cerrón Grande reservoir. There are various options for entertainment: fishing, trips to the Islands, the use of Ferry, Kayak, delicious culinary offerings in the surroundings, the contemplation of migratory birds and the joy of the soul to appreciate the calm refllejada in its colors a serene pale bluish green. And of course, the ride to the Central town of Suchitoto, full of history and culture. PREFERRED.
