Suchitoto - La Unión - Potosí

We will pick you from your hotel in Suchitoto at 05.30h for a 4,5 hour drive to La Unión (with a stopover in San Salvador). You cant miss the stratovolcanoes Chichontepec (San Vicente, 2182m/7159ft) and Chaparrastique (San Miguel, 2130m/6988ft); the former the second highest volcano in El Salvador, the latter the most active in the country.

Upon arrival in La Unión, you could almost smell the sea. La Unión is a sleepy fishing town, once the most important harbor in El Salvador but now overtaken by history. Our staff will handle the paperwork which will take approximately an hour; during these formalities, you can stroll along the small but lovely market in La Unión and have a delicious Pupusa, the most popular local snack in El Salvador

Life vests and raincoats will be handed out in the boat and the luggage will be stowed away in waterproof bags. Be prepared to get a bit wet from the splashing water when the 140BHP outboard engine is working in full throttle!!

When leaving La Unión you will see a group of islands and volcanoes, once disputed between Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua; today a beacon of peace and serenity. Fishermen are hauling in their catch of the day, birds are skimming over the water and if you are fortunate, you will see dolphins playing and jumping around the boat. In between leaving La Unión and entering the harbor of Potosí Nicaragua the boat will make a stop at on the volcanic island of Meanguera to have a cup of coffee and possibility to buy artisanal.
