Concepción de Ataco is a colonial villa situated in Ahuachapán, a province in El Salvador. The town is part of the Ruta de Las Flores, which is a journey through colonial towns in the mountains where you can enjoy a cool, pleasant climate and much more.

Along the route, visitors will experience spectacular scenery full of greenery and flowers. At typical arts and crafts stores, travelers can purchase souvenirs to remember their trip or to give friends and family. Art galleries provide another cultural outlet.

I was there recently, taking advantage of the local August holiday in El Salvador. The cold wind on my face was refreshing, as was having a quiet time away from the much warmer capital city. Ataco also provides many activities, such as coffee plantation tours where guests can learn about the process of making this beverage that we enjoy every day.

The town’s many restaurants offer a glass of wine or a tasty cup of coffee with a wide variety of dishes from typical to international cuisine. I had a great time and culinary experience at Café Café, a Peruvian restaurant. After a good meal, there’s nothing better than to walk around the cobbled streets and see the colonial houses with their distinctive colors and visit the central plaza and church. Hotels with comfortable accommodations are available nearby so you can spend a few days and enjoy all the things this beautiful village offers.

I hope you can visit El Salvador soon and renew your energy at this wonderful place!

  • As far as the number of implants needed, this will depend on the individual patient.
    If you are considering having this work done, the first step is talking to your
    regular dentist. The dental procedure for the root canals was done on Dec.
