    Anyone in town can give you directions to the church that holds the famous Cristo Negro. The Church itself is nicely decorated. Thousands of followers have left behind a wide range of tokens behind, a gift to the healing powers of the Cristo Negro.

    For those heading to El Salvador, there are several collectivos (mini-bus vans) makeing the runs from town to the border of Anguiatu, El Salvador. From the border you can grab several buses into El Salvador that take your to Metapan, Santa Ana, and El Salvador, among other destinations. Fares are relatively cheap at under $1 USD an hour.

    Esquipulas is best reached by bus. There is not much to do in town other than the Cristo Negro (hence why I was short and to the point on this page). You can reach town by bus from Guatemala City. The bus is dirt cheap (under $1 an hour) and takes about 4 hours.
