|street in Suchitoto|
On Day five, we get out of San Salvador for the first time. We will travel to Suchitoto, a cultural center in El Salvador. This is a beautiful town with a great deal to see and do.
The Los Tercios Waterfall is just a 1.5 km walk from the city center. Its uniqueness and beauty lies in the vertical wall behind the water that is composed of large hexagonal columns of rock. This very rare rock formation is the result of nearby volcanic activity, although numerous folkloric legends also claim to explain the origins of the shape of the rocks.
Los Tercios has water between May and November, although it is worth a visit between December and April too in order to see the stones most clearly.
