    Along the road to La Palma, you'll come across some picturesque villages. The locals are extremely friendly and welcoming. One of the most charming is the town of Citala at the foot of El Pital mountain.

    The best way to enjoy this place is by renting a 4x4, it's a rather remote place and therfore best to have an all terrain vehicle. Besides it gives you the freedom to explore and to really take in all the natural sourroundings.

    La Palma was the site that salvadoran artist Fernando Llort decided to settle in. His style was quickly adopted by the locals who produce wonderful painted wood handicrafts depicting local scenes. There are countless shops in the village, since this is their most important source of revenue. The shops are all decorated with their colorful style!

    What to buy: Hadicrafts, wood carvings, hand embroided clothing, etc. all done in their colorful manner.

    The handicrafts of La Palma are the most well known in El Salvador. Although they are widely available in San Salvador and other cities, it's a great idea to come and see the workshops and the extensive selection available directly from the artisans making them.

    Visit Cerro El Pital, El Salvador's highest elevation and a nature lover's paradise. The mountain scenery and the overwhelming natural environment are breathtaking.
