Trip Report Mini Trip Report: Weekend in Suchitoto, El Salvador

Jump to last reply

I thought I was headed to nicaragua over the weekend...after I realized flight had been delayed by a day (when I went to check in online!!), I cancelled the ticket to nicaragua and ended up in El Salvador instead. I based myself in Suchitoto for three nights and was not disappointed. The people I met could not have been friendlier and it was a great place to chill out for a few days. There were hardly any tourists there, and zero hassle even though I was traveling alone.

You can easily get to Suchitoto by public bus ($25 hour long cab ride from airport to bus station in San Salvador - from bus station it is only 80 cents and another hour and a half to Suchitoto).
I didn't book anything in advance since I was not positive where I was headed when I got off the plane. I wandered into Las Puertas as it was right on the town square
great rooms, and great balcony. Can be noisy though as is right on the square. Great breakfast and the people working there are fabulous (They don't speak English and I don't speak Spanish but they were always eager to try to help.)
