Santa Tecla: This Large City Can Be Your Next Home

A few days ago, I took a trip to Santa Tecla with my friends. It is considered one of the largest cities in the country. It still has the architectural styles in its town. The city is well maintained and is patrolled by metropolitan guards. We went in our car as it has well-built roads. One may even take a bus there. The best way to explore the city is to walk through it.

As we reached in the afternoon, first we went to have a quick bite at El Cafecito. We had some paninis and crepes. We then went to Plaza Merliot which is one of the earliest centers in El Salvador. Even this place has a food court where the food ranges from waffles, burgers and homemade type meals. Afterward, we took a private evening tour of El Boqueron. It is the iconic volcano of San Salvador and is considered as the symbol of the city. It is located 25 km from the city. We took the trail to the top. The view was breathtaking and even the fresh air was soothing. It is also known as Big Mouth. We explored the massive crater which was 5 km in diameter. On the way back, we had the traditional food parrillada and barbecue.

The next morning we had our breakfast at a joint called Pupuserias. It is authentic food. We had cheese and bean pupusas. Then we explored the El Rosario Church. We even went to the massive Metropolitan Cathedral. Later we went to Paseo El Carmen. It is a major tourist attraction with restaurants, cafes, and bars. It has been named after El Carmen church. There are various street vendors too.

We left the city during the late evening. But it was a memorable trip.
