Welcome to one of the destinations with the coolest climate in El Salvador!

Apaneca’s cold climate is offset by a cup of the highest quality coffee, harvested in the area.
Apaneca is one of the destinations that make up the Ruta de Las Flores, located in the department of Ahuachapán at 1,477 meters above sea level, an ideal place for cool weather lovers.

Apaneca has destinations such as Laguna Verde and Laguna Las Ninfas, both lagoons are ideal for hiking and exploring the flora and fauna of the area. Its church, the facades of its houses, its culture and traditions will transport you to ancient times of this town with a great historical legacy.

Visitors are invited to go to curious and mystical places such as the Albania Labyrinth, a huge ecological labyrinth that challenges you to find your way out; and the Hoyo de Cuajusto, an extinct volcanic crater that preserves some caves.

Accommodation is not a problem, the area has an affordable cozy hostel but visitors can also choose between cabins or more rustic hotels.

The colorful houses and the handicraft sales will motivate you to take a tour around the cobblestone streets. In the downtown area visitors can taste local cuisine such as Indian chicken soup, roast chicken, quesadillas and more.

Regarding gastronomy, both in the urban area and in the neighboring destinations you will find a rich offer of traditional cuisine.

Definitely, Apaneca is a place that you must visit.
