Park
“A few minutes away in taxi or by car or bus will . I would suggest to get there in the afternoon. You can watch local people gathering at the park to take a cup of coffee. If you walk around you will find multiple pupuserias and handmade products. My favorite places to eat pupusas are "Senkali" for fancy and new flavor pupusas. If you like to taste something less touristy try "Pupuseria Iris". ”
