Introducing Santa Ana

Hints of a wealthy yesteryear linger in the colonial backstreets of Santa Ana, a socially conservative major city, and long home to the country’s largest coffee plantations. Santa Ana is also the closest thing to a university town outside San Salvador, reflected in the lively nightlife and proud entrepreneurial spirit. The plaza is among the grandest in El Salvador, making it more than a handy departure point for Lago de Coatepeque, the Maya ruins at Tazumal or the Ruta de las Flores.
