EL SALVADOR Ruta de las Flores from Sonsonate to Ahuachapán
A meander through a series of beautiful mountain villages with a mix of colonial and indigenous flavors
Dist 45 km; Date: Jan 2014
Leave the town of Sonsonate along CA-8 and, essentially, that’s it until you reach Ahuachapán 45 km later. But be sure to detour slightly to visit the town of Juayúa. We stayed the night there and the next morning took a jog, then rocky ride down to the Chorros de la Calera waterfalls. Also, this is prime El Salvadorian coffee country so be sure to do some tasting.
