The scenic Flower Route (Ruta de Las Flores) links some of western El Salvador’s most attractive colonial towns and winds through an endless panorama of wildflower-bedecked hillsides, dense forests, and looming volcanoes. See below for places to stop along the way. 

Juayua
The village of Juayua is famous for its lively weekend food market and is a great spot to try traditional El Salvadorian food. It’s also the start of the Seven Waterfalls hiking route, which passes by the magnificent Los Chorros waterfall.

Apaneca
El Salvador’s second-highest town, Apaneca is characterized by its cobblestone streets and colorful adobe houses. Adventurers can also explore the surrounding Sierra Apaneca Ilamatepec mountains, hike to the Green Lagoon (Laguna Verde) and Lagoon of the Nymphs (Laguna de las Ninfas), or zipline through the rain forest.

Ataco
Surrounded by coffee plantations, Ataco is known for its homegrown coffee, colorfully painted houses, and rich art scene. Admire the town’s striking murals on a walking tour, browse the artisan workshops for handicrafts, and of course, enjoy a freshly brewed coffee.
