If you were staying in Perquin or nearby then I would say this is a town to visit to learn some of the history of El Salvador’s civil war. The town is very easy to reach by a combination of bus, pickup and walking. In Perquin you can go on a guided tour for $5.00 USD dollars and they handle all the logistics of getting you there. My friend and I were walking the last couple miles and someone stopped in a truck and gave us a free ride part of the distance.

The Story of what happened.
