Ruta de Flores and Mayan Ruins

Ruta de Flores and Mayan Ruins

The Ruta de Flores is composed of several towns in the salvadorean coffee mountains.

The Ruta de las Flores is a Road up in the salvadorean mountains located in the west of the country. This Road is surrounded by towns that were originally founded because of Coffee Plantation and Production. But now, with the coffee prices plummeting down, these towns have found a rebirth in tourism. More specifically, these towns are now popular for Local Tourism that seeks safe spots where families can spend a whole afternoon at affordable prices. Ataco and Juayua are the most visited of these towns. Juayua has to be visited on a weekend noon or afternoon, because its highlight is the weekend street food, during the week the town is alive for locals but very little to do for tourists. Ataco is visited for its shopping streets and murals on the walls of almost every business. Ataco has very good coffee shops where you can try the best of the local coffee. The Mayan Ruins in El Salvador are not the most impressive in the Mayan World but they are as important. There is four major archaeological sites: Tazumal, Joya de Ceren, San Andres and Casa Blanca.
