Cinquera-Civil War and Eco Tour

One of our more popular tours for those staying in Suchitoto!

The neighboring town of Cinquera with its sub-tropical eco forest makes a good option to combine the history of the recent civil war and local wildlife while at the same time supporting a communal eco-tourism program that benefits many in the area.

Our tour includes the park entrance fees, cost a local park guide, a simple lunch at the association’s (ARDM) eatery, bottled water, transportation from Suchitoto to Cinquera, a short tour of the plaza and church in Cinquera and if time permits a visit ARDM’s to an iguana farm. The association also runs a small museum that we include if interested and can take the heat inside the small building.

The tour requires an average to moderate-advanced effort for the 2-3 hour hike in the forest reserve area. For those in good shape the local guide will take you up to the lookout tower which although rustic offers nice views of the surround area.

If time permits a stop at the famous Los Tercios waterfall can be included on the return trip to Suchitoto.

This tour is best done in the morning and don’t forget to bring your swim suit because inside the forest there is a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole, the swim is best after the hike up to the lookout….
