Test your physical endurance and climb the Cayaguanca Rock, a rock formation in Chalatenango, and a tourist attraction for hikers and climbers.

Cayaguanca Rock is located near the town of San Ignacio, Chalatenango, a border point between El Salvador and Honduras. Visitors love it for its tranquility, beautiful scenery and fun.

Getting to this rock formation is not easy, it requires strength, sturdy legs and above all a lot of energy, as it is a long walk.

The trip starts on a wide cobblestone street, and then enters the rustic area. The route is 3 kilometers long and the level is medium high (7/10). It is recommended to bring enough water, adequate clothing, a sweater, sunglasses, and a hat or cap.

The adventure through the rustic terrain is worth it, because it will allow you to be in contact with the lush vegetation of the area, which offers beautiful pine forests.
