Picturesque Suchitoto at Lake Suchitlan

Suchitoto is the place where the original San Salvador was founded. After the capital was moved to another valley, however, the original town survived, and how! Suchitoto is known throughout El Salvador for its church and especially the cobblestone streets. This gives the whole a picturesque atmosphere. From Suchitoto you have a beautiful view over Suchitlan Lake, the largest lake of El Salvador. You can take beautiful boat trips across the bird-rich lake. Suchitoto has a wide range of cultural activities such as art galleries, cultural centres and handmade souvenirs.
