"Ataco" Concepción de Ataco by MalenaN
Concepción de Ataco Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 62 photos
Concepción de Ataco is a pretty village along Ruta de Las Flores. Colonial and newer houses are painted in bright colours and some have colourful murals. The streets have cobble stone and there is not much traffic. There is a central square where it is nice to sit in the shade for a while watching people. Around the square you will find the church, the municipal building, a few cafés and a tourist information. I didn’t see the tourist information, but maybe it is just open during weekends. In the village there are also some nice restaurants and souvenir shops, and there is a small market.
I visited Ataco during the week and as far as I could see I was the only tourist there at the moment. During weekends Ataco gets more visitors, but not as many as Juayúa (another town along Ruta de Las Flores). Juayúa has got the food festival, but Ataco is more charming.
Ruta de Las Flores is the name of the road between Sonsonate and Ahuachapán. This mountain road has got its name because of the natural beauty and cool climate. In this area a lot of coffee is cultivated and there are also plant nurseries. Besides Ataco there are four more small charming towns along the road; Apaneca, Juayúa, Salcoatitán and Nahuizalco.
There are a few artesanías (handicraft shops) in Ataco. One of them is Diconte-Axul where you can find painted wood... more travel advice
