Many of the towns along the route had murals and other paintings on the building walls. Here is a sampling.
Before we left Guatemala, we knew we wanted to be able to check a visit to El Salvador off of our list. So, taking advantage of the Monday Presidents’ Day holiday, we headed out on Saturday to spend a couple of nights in the mountains of El Salvador on the Ruta de Las Flores.
The route has several nice little towns to visit and we stayed at a great little place that had a cabin with a separate room and a restaurant onsite, both of which were key to making this happen with DiploTot and DiploBoy. It is getting more challenging traveling with the kids now, so we weren’t sure if the trip would end up being a total disaster or not. All in all, things went pretty smoothly with them, save for the drive back which was an exercise in frustration.
Here are some of the sites from the towns we visited – Ataco, Apaneca and Juayua.
