Parque Chatún

Amusement Park in Esquipulas

If you've got kids along (or even if you don't), this park 3km out of town should provide some light relief from all the religious business. There are swimming pools, a climbing wall, campgrounds, a petting zoo, a canopy tour and a mini bungee jump. Entry includes nothing: you pay extra for all the activities once inside.

If you don't have a vehicle, look for the minibus doing rounds of the town or get your hotel to call it – it will take you out there for Q5.
