"Tacuba" Tacuba by MalenaN

Tacuba Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 95 photos

Tacuba is a small town with a population of 5000 inhabitants. It is situated 14 km west of Ahuachapán and near the Guatemalan border. The surroundings are beautiful with mountains and many coffee plantations. Tacuba is situated on the northern edge of Parque Nacional El Imposible at an elevation of 700 metres above sea level. From Tacuba you can arrange great hikes in to the national park or the vicinity.
In the Pipil language Tacuba means “place of the ball game”.

I spent two and a half days in Tacuba and during that time I made two hiking tours with Imposible tours at Hostal de Mamá y Papá. Both hikes were absolutely great! Besides the good hiking opportunities Tacuba is a nice little town to stroll around in.

    I took my time on this page - just the type of trip I would love! Wow, Parque Nacional El Imposible and your El Cerro Campana & La Luna treks look fantastic!! Hostal de Mamá y Papá sounds like a real winner too! Thanks for the great T'logues as well.

    You never cease to amaze me Malena- you are such an adventurer and go to some pretty cool places. The treks you took sound so interesting with much nature to see.

    Fine photos in your tips and travelogues. I enjoyed reading your tips about your two trekking tours to El Cerro Campana and La Luna. It's amazing that you had a swim in the freezing cold water by that waterfall.

    Nice new tips! The Torogoz looks like a lovely bird -- good thing you were fortunate enough to see some in their native habitat.
