El Salvador: Ruta de las Flores

This extremely scenic 36km route in the hilly western zone, near the Guatemalan border, passes through the principal coffee-growing region. It links several highland towns, including Ataco, Nahuizalco, Juayúa and Apaneca. The route starts in Sonsonate in a lowland area devoted to cattle-raising and plantation agriculture, climbing to the Pipil indigenous village of Nahuizalco, where some older inhabitants wear native costume and where traditional crafts are practised. At the northern end of the route, Apaneca is a peaceful town of cobbled lanes. The region is also famous for its traditional dancing – over 30 have been identified.
