La union port and the "golfo de fonseca"
Because of its distance from the capital and the international airport of El Salvador, the department of La Union and the port in general is very little visited by tourists, so this region is a very little known destination, but pontenziell one of the most beautiful regions on the whole Country.
The tourism services in this area are unfortunately very limited and qualitatively very limited, nevertheless for adventurers who want to get to know the country is an absolute must.
For those curious explorers of this region, we decided to visit and discover the coastal road. And collected photos about this area photos. Among other things of Playas Negras, Las Tunas, Tamarindo and directly from the port in La Union and other hidden corners of the peaceful environment. Click here to view the photo gallery!
At the beginning: For travelers who prefer a little comfort, we recommend the popular beach of El Cuco or Playa Las Flores in San Miguel where there is a little more tourism and different accommodations to choose from as there are very few accommodations in La Union And hotels and some of them of poor quality and high prices.
From El Cuco to La Union, it is just over half an hour by car.
The town of La Union is a very populated center with a very populated center and many unofficial shops, as in many parts of the country, and apart from a small tourist promenade there is not much to see in this city.
But doubt is the tourist potential further south of the city, the port of Puerto Cutuco. And across an unpaved road between small hamlets and peasant houses, we found a little piece of paradise, with a breathtaking view of the islands in the Gulf of Fonseca.
Your name: Playitas. This small beach is the best place to start either a fishing trip, a tour to the beaches of the Gulf Islands or just to enjoy the fresh seafood offered in this small fishing village.
Another sight / activity in this area is to walk the Conchagua Volcano, a great adventure for those who have exercise in hiking. The Conchagua volcano is located on the shores of the Gulf with easy access via a road at the entrance of the town of La Union. Worth mentioning is that during the hike the different islands in the Gulf are to be seen and the view from the volcano is simply breathtaking!
A visit to this area is a very relaxed trip, and it gives an impression of the immense tourist potential that this country has.
Spectacular hotel with the best panoramic views on Playa Las Flores, just a few meters from the village of El Cuco in San Miguel. Rooms and exclusive service for discerning guests and looking for more comfort.
