Cinquera was a stronghold of guerrilla resistance where bullet damage still can be seen. the park has winding hiking trails, lush landscape and a small waterfall

We had the opportunity to visit this forest this past week, and it's a fascinating as well as a beautiful place. The history behind it, and the next-door town, with the combination of nature make this a unique place. But, it's something of a pain to get to, especially if you're staying in or on the other side of San... More

Visited this park as part of an Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) group and we had Rafael (head ranger) as our guide. He was a former gorilla fighter in their civil war (i.e. they call the "Civilian Conflict") and is the undisputed local expert on the history of the park, etc. He has a wealth of information and is eager to...

The park was created by the former FMLN guerillas and their families to protect the forest from loggers. They told me that "these trees protected us and took bullets for us when the army was bombing us". The trail is somewhat steep but takes you to a former guerilla camp. There is a swimming hole to cool off in after... More

A short walk from the town center and you’re in a beautiful forest with a well maintained path. During my stay I frequented the waterfall and swimming hole in the forest for a refreshing dip during the hottest part of the day. Aside from some local school kids, I generally had this little slice of paradise all to myself! I... More

Over my years here in El Salvador I have visited the park many times. For the last year I now go to bird watch as the forrest makes an ideal spot for birding in the central part of the country. Yesterday I took some friends visiting from California and they did the tour with Rafael the head park guide and... More

I had a great afternoon here, as I hired a local guide who really knew the history of Cinquera. We only hiked around for maybe an hour and a half, but there are some great views, and it is an easy bus ride from Suchitoto. Had I not had a guide who knew the history of Cinquera/significance during El Salvador's... More
