Birding Site Guide

The pretty town of Suchitoto can be reached by bus in 2 hours from San Salvador. There are several places to stay here and many places to eat. The locals are very friendly. Suchitoto lies near the huge reservoir of Embalsa Cerron Grande. There were many birds in gardens and secondary forest on the way to reservoir at San Juan and also along the road east along the lake. Some water birds were seen on a boat ride across the lake. Boats can be easily hire from the San Juan pier near town. Our boat took us close to an island with 100s of Great Egrets and Wood Storks roosting. I saw 57 species including 3 lifers.
