The Suchitoto day tour is a beautiful visit to the enchanting city of Suchitoto, a Colonial Style Town, also known as the “Place of Flower Bird” for its name in Nahuatl. Suchitoto offers an essence of ancient city with colonial architecture that seems like the time has stopped. Visit its beautiful cobbled streets, art galleries, crafts and home of one of the main attractions of the city for its structure and historical importance: the Santa Lucia Church, built in 1853.
The founding of Suchitoto is attributed to the Pipiles, who settled in the present Salvadoran territory of Cuscatlán halfway through the 11 th century and were one of the most veteran indigenous tribes that fought against the Spanish conquistadors in the beginning of the 17 th century. The city is known as the “Cradle of History and Culture” for all the wealth it contains. Later, if you feel like, you can also visit Suchitlán Lake, the largest artificial lake surface water in the country. Its natural scenic beauty makes it an ideal destination to enjoy a artisan boat ride with one of the local boaters. During the boat ride you will be able to visit the different islands that surround the lake, home of migratory birds and native animals.
