What to expect
Your tour begins with an 8.30am pickup from your central San Salvador hotel by private vehicle. Soak up the scenery as you leave the city and set out to explore the 25-mile (40km) Flower Route. Hear how the road was named for its colorful wildflowers that bloom along the roadside between November and February, and if you’re visiting in season, stop to take photos of the vibrant landscapes as you drive between the villages. Along the way, get a taste of life in rural El Salvador as you visit five towns along the Flower Route, characterized by their cobbled streets and brightly painted adobe houses. Visit picturesque Apaneca, nestled between the mountains; admire traditional handicrafts in Nahuizalco and Juayua; visit Zalcoatitan’s 19th-century colonial church; and browse the markets and bold street art of Ataco. You will also have chance to visit either the Don Juan Waterfalls or take a tour of the El Carmen coffee plantation to learn more about El Salvador’s booming coffee industry. After a full day exploring the Flower Route, your tour ends with drop-off at your San Salvador hotel around 5.30pm.

Best Guide Ever
Dec 2019
We did the Ruta de Flores (Flower Route) Tour and Mac Bernal was awesome. Best tour guide! Fantastic look into the smaller towns outside of San Salvador, how the people live, the local food, and amazing views. Mac knew his stuff! His English is excellent and his knowledge of the towns / people was great. He gave us really good tips on where to look for certain things (food, gifts, etc.) and was just a ton of fun to ride around the country with.

Learned so much about El Salvador
Jul 2019 • Family
Mac is a great tour guide that knows everything about El Salvador! This was not our first time visiting and have toured different parts before but this was the first time we really got to learn the history. We felt extremely safe with Mac and he took good care of us by suggesting the best restaurants and best places to visit. We hope to see him again on our next trip!

What an amazing time, MAC helped us to get the perfect combination of culture, fun and adventure we needed for a trip I have been waiting to do for 21 years. He helped my husband, daughter and myself feel so safe & comfortable....Mac is so knowledgeable, he kept us entertained while driving us to all the different parts of beautiful El Salvador. Ruta Maya, lago Coatepeque, Suchitoto, to mention some. We are definitely exited to come back and have an amazing time with such a wonderful tour guide like Mac, who was able to show us so much in a short period. We will come back to see you soon Mac and enjoy some more fun stories & adventures, we are forever thankful for making this visit such an unforgettable vacation & most importantly thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing my family how warm and welcoming the people in my country really is. Much love and success to you

Your friends,

Great Trip with Maya Triangle Tours
Our group of 15 enjoyed a fantastic day with Mac Bernal on the ruta de flores tour. Mac did a fantastic job connecting with the adults in our group as well as the teenagers. We all learned a lot about the history of El Salvador. The beautiful towns along the route are worth the visit.

Mac had a vehicle which seated 26 which meant a large group of 15 with six adults and nine teenagers could be very comfortable. His driver was also excellent.

We particularly enjoyed the lunch at a coffee plantation.

Mac speaks several languages and his English is excellent.

Mac is very passionate about his country and he is a top notch and safe tour guide. Be sure to make scheduling Maya Triangle Tours a priority for your trip to El Salvador.

Mini Route de Flores
Apr 2019 • Family
We spent an excellent day with Mac showing us the sites of the El Salvadoran countryside. The day started with Mac picking up our group at our vacation home. Right from the start Mac captivated us with his stories of his childhood and the history of El Salvador. He held the attention of adults and teens alike. For our group it was great that he spoke fluent English. But he also speaks Spanish, Italian, Mayan and probably others. He is very passionate about his country and eager to share its highs and lows. We felt very safe with Mac, he has an excellent background in security. I would recommend Mac to anyone looking to travel to Central America.

Amazing tour with Mac Bernel - the best in the business.
I don’t know where to even begin. Such an awesome day! Mac picked us up at our vacation home along costa del Sol in an air-conditioned minibus. We then spent 10 hours touring El Salvador‘s amazing countryside with him. We had nine children ages 8 to 16 years old along and he captivated each one of them for the entire trip! Mac is passionate about his country El Salvador and is so full of knowledge and delivers this knowledge in such a captive way.

We toured many beautiful cities along the route de Flores and Mac spoke passionately about the reality of life in his country. He took us to an amazing restaurant on a coffee plantation for lunch and adapted the trip on the backend because the kids were wanting ice cream so he found us an amazing ice cream place to stop!

Mac offers many different tours throughout the triangle countries. He is so trustworthy, made us feel safe, and taught us so much about Central America and the beautiful people of El Salvador!

He is a DEFINITE must if you ever visit the area!
