El Cuco Vacation Packages

You will find El Cuco 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south of San Miguel, one of the region's more popular cities.

Are you looking to see more of the region? If yes, visit Punta Mango, which is 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the west, or Llano de Los Patos, 11 miles (18 kilometers) to the east.

Grab your towel and test out a couple of water-based activities, including swimming. If you're craving more, you can also try your hand at surfing.

Traditional foods are strongly rooted within the memories of the local people. Step outside your comfort zone and dive into the local tradition by experimenting with the popular cuisine.

Chicken and beef are ingredients likely to touch your taste buds during your stay in the region.

Try a few of the popular meals here, like tipico salvadoreno (eggs, cheese, tortillas) or casamiento (rice and black beans).

Finish your meal with pastelitos (small stuffed pastries), a popular dessert, at least once.

If you're after a local specialty drink without alcohol, order kolachampan (sugar-cane soft drink).

Buy vinagre de piña (fermented pineapples and water) and you'll quickly see why this spirit is so popular here.

Taking the time to pick up some Spanish will allow you to engage with the locals. Start from scratch with "¿Querría bailar conmigo?", a popular phrase that means "Would you like to dance with me?" Also, learning "Este caballero pagará por todo", which translates to "This gentleman will pay for everything", is going to be another good tool to have up your sleeve.

Don't forget to seek out the celebrations commonly held for Independence Day on the 15th of September.

When you have spent the last of your U.S. dollars and said, "Adiós" to this place, you'll be set to start planning your next vacation!

65 miles (105 kilometers) to the west is El Cuco's closest major airport, El Salvador International Airport.
