Suchitoto: Walk in Cinquera Ecological Park

Visit Us

Walk in Cinquera Ecological Park

The area around the small town of Cinquera, 18km from Suchitoto in northern El Salvador was afflicted by heavy fighting during the civil war, many of the inhabitants left the area and the guerrillas moved in. Their bases came under attack from the army and they took shelter within the forests landscapes. After the war  the returning population started to clear the woodland for agriculture, much to the chagrin of former rebels who respected the environment for having offered them shelter.

An ecological reserve was established to conserve what remained of the native vegetation. It also maintains various vestiges of the war such as the rebel hospital and kitchen.  You can walk around the reserve with a local guide: most guides are former guerrillas and can relate many poignant tales from the wartime period.  You’ll also appreciate the beauty and serenity of the countryside at peace.
