Welcome to La Democracia
La Democracia is a modest Pacific Slope town 10km south of Siquinalá on the Carretera al Pacifíco. It's one for the archaeology buffs, as during the late Preclassic period (300 BC to AD 250), this area, like Takalik Abaj to the northwest, was home to a culture showing influence from southern Mexico – the remnants of which are on display in the town center. As you come into town from the highway, follow signs to the regional museo, which is on the plaza. You'll find a 5B ATM there, too.
