We drop by after our Seven Waterfalls Tour and we hit the jackpot! Food, Music, Souvenirs, and Hardworking friendly people all over the Plaza! It felt safe, festive and the food was tasty. They can really cook good around El Sal!

The Parque Central is especially busy during the weekends when they have a food-fair. Great food is served from the food-stalls.
