El Salvador: Exploring Suchitoto and Beyond 

Day 1-2: Arrival and Suchitoto and Exploration 

Jose began his journey in the heart of El Salvador, where he was greeted by cobblestone streets and colonial architecture, inviting visitors into the picturesque town of Suchitoto. 

During his stay, he found solace at the serene Hotel Los Almendros and savored the flavors of authentic local cuisine at Los Almendros de San Lorenzo. He then delved into the town’s rich history, immersing himself in its cultural heritage, and took a trip to the Indigo Workshop to discover traditional art forms. 

Continuing his journey, he headed towards the sun-drenched shores of La Libertad, particularly the renowned beach of El Tunco. There, he checked into Hotel Casa de Mar El Sunzal, a seaside sanctuary offering awe-inspiring ocean vistas and a relaxed ambiance. The rest of his day was spent basking in the sun, riding the waves, or simply unwinding on the immaculate sands. 



Day 3-4: La Libertad and the East Coast 

On his third day, he departed from La Libertad and embarked on a scenic journey to the east coast of El Salvador. Along the way, he marveled at the diverse ecosystems and mangrove forests around the Bay of Jiquilisco, including a captivating cacao tour that revealed the intricate process of chocolate production from bean to bar. 




Upon reaching the east coast, he checked into Hotel Los Mangos, nestled amidst lush tropical foliage, offering a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

The next morning, José explored the Gulf of Fonseca, a pristine marine sanctuary brimming with marine life and picturesque islands. He engaged in various activities, such as kayaking through the mangrove forests, snorkeling among vibrant coral reefs, and admiring the stunning coastal villas. 

He then returned to the hotel to prepare for his next adventure in Guatemala. 


Guatemala: From Pacaya Volcano to Chichicastenango’s Market 

Day 1: Pacaya Volcano Hike and Rum Tasting 

Jose began his Guatemalan adventure with a flight from San Salvador to Guatemala City, heading straight to the Pacaya Volcano for an exhilarating hike. Upon reaching the summit, he enjoyed breathtaking views and a scenic picnic lunch overlooking the distant crater. 


After the hike, he checked into his hotel to rest and prepare for the next day’s activities. 

Day 2: Lake Atitlan and San Juan Village 

The following day, Jose took a private boat transfer across Lake Atitlan, where he explored San Juan Village, renowned for its vibrant art galleries and traditional textiles. He also visited several nearby villages around the lake. 



That evening, he stayed at the charming Casa Palopo. 


Day 3: Chichicastenango’s Market + Departure 

On his final day, Jose traveled to Chichicastenango, famous for its colorful market that attracts vendors from all over Guatemala, representing various linguistic groups such as Mam, Ixil, and Kaqchikel. 



Upon arrival, he visited the Iglesia de Santo Tomás, an iconic monument significant to indigenous and Mayan history. Later, Jose returned to Guatemala City to rest and prepare for his departure the next day. 

Enchanting Escape to Panama: A Private Island Paradise 

After his time in Guatemala, Jose ventured to Panama, spending two nights in Panama City. There, he enjoyed a visit to Casco Viejo, the city’s historic district known for its charming colonial architecture and vibrant atmosphere. During his stay, he also discovered the new Sofitel and La Compania hotels, both offering a fresh and luxurious addition to the city’s hospitality scene. 


Following his time in Panama City, Jose traveled to the Bocas Del Toro archipelago, where he and his wife Monica immersed themselves in the luxurious ambiance of Nayara Bocas Del Toro. This secluded paradise in Panama’s enchanting Bocas Del Toro archipelago is an adults-only, Balinese-inspired haven that offers a carefully curated experience catering to every whim. Jose and Monica’s days were a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation, from paddleboarding through crystalline waters to savoring gourmet delights at the resort’s unique dining venues. 


Staying in one of the resort’s opulent overwater pool villas, Jose and Monica enjoyed direct access to the tranquil lagoon, where early morning swims became a ritual of rejuvenation. Each evening, they indulged in the chef’s meticulously crafted dinner menu at the Elephant House, a stunning 100-year-old Balinese structure shipped halfway around the world from Bali, Indonesia. This provided an unforgettable backdrop as the moonlight danced on the water. Whether exploring the vibrant marine life or unwinding with a soothing massage on their private terrace, Jose and Monica’s stay at Nayara Bocas Del Toro epitomized the ultimate blend of luxury and nature.
