3 star rating: Worth doing July 2015

Cihuatán was very interesting. It is about Mayan artifacts many of which are still being uncovered. La Palma was our favorite because we love the La Palma paintings which are so traditional and renown from El Salvador. Our guide Alex, took us to Paty's where we actually got to paint one of the boxes ourselves. That was great! We went to Suchitoto but we did not learn it's significance. We were told Look at the church. I would think that a 90 min. drive would be worth more comment. Our guide Alex was not very knowledgeable but La Palma made up for it.
