Hispanic Heritage Month
Each of the countries on the list above has its own speciality, but what they have in common is this. A combination of local traditions and Spanish culture. There couldn’t be a more beautiful way to learn about What sets each country apart and what they have in common. This can be done by attending a series of richly experienced objections, filled with fervour and unusual encounters.
Cartago, Costa Rica
Cartago was once the capital of Costa Rica until a volcanic eruption wiped it off the map. This happened in the eighteenth century. Nowadays it serves as a social community and a place for visitors. To experience a set of country experiences and to embrace the ordinary splendour of Costa Rica. In Cartago, guests can stroll through the remains of sanctuaries like this one. Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Los Ángeles, see old stone forests and learn. How people lived many years ago in the exceptionally old houses that have been preserved. It is also impossible not to mention the ruins of Ujarras. The oldest church in the country, which is surrounded. Delightful children’s gardens that will shake you to your core.
Tazumal, El Salvador
El Salvador is home to several noteworthy Mayan ruins that bear witness to the once extraordinary development of humanity. Tazumal, a Mayan pre-Columbian archaeological site in Chalciuapa, is one such site. The site is thought to be over 7,000 years old and was abandoned around the thirteenth century. Much of the composite complex still remains hidden after such a long time. However, vast areas were restored in the 1940s and 1950s, giving visitors an insight into the past. Nearby guests can also visit Santa Ana, the second largest city in El Salvador.
Santa Ana tells the story of El Salvador’s more recent history and is the place to experience the lifestyle and customs of the country. While you’re nearby, visit the neo-Gothic church built in 1913 on the same site where the first hearth was destroyed by lightning. Then grab an espresso in the nearby bistros, as Santa Ana is one of the significant centres of the espresso trade in the country.
The sixteenth century city of Antigua is surrounded by volcanoes, chapels and Baroque buildings, combining European style with pre-Hispanic tradition. It is so dazzling and rich in history that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s good news for explorers: most of the city’s attractions can be visited on foot, including the Arco de Santa Catalina with its rich French clock, the Central Park, surrounded by notable structures, and the Palacio de Ayuntamiento, which tells the story of how Antigua was the country’s capital.
Antigua is also popular for having arguably the best restaurants and hotels in Guatemala.
Honduras may be notable for its seashores, but there are also some curious inland towns worth exploring to get a deeper feel for the country. One such town that deserves your attention is the city that was once the capital: Comayagua. Founded in the mid-1500s, a visit here is like going back in time. Several galleries showcase the social extravagance of Honduras, including the Comayagua Regional Museum, the Museum of Religious Art and the must-see cheque in the central square, which is the oldest cheque on the mainland, dating back to the twelfth century.
If you can, plan a trip here for Holy Week in April. This is when locals gather to honour the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception. During this time, passionate Christians living in Comayagua take control of the roads to display their transitional ‘alfobras’ (or ‘floor coverings’) made of shiny sawdust. Each rug depicts an alternative austere scene meant to be acknowledged on Good Friday.
Mexico Veracruz is a distinctive marvel with seashores that stretch as far as they should, dark blue waves that will bewitch you, cascades so incredible they feel at the very centre of your spirit and even ridges that transition into the desert, a perfect likeness of how interconnected we are as a whole. Apart from its usual excellence, it’s also one of Mexico’s most proven states.
Nearly five centuries before the Spanish main campaign, led by Juan de Grijalva, arrived here. Since then, the port city has become a mix of Hispanic, Spanish and Afro-Cuban culture. This is reflected in its rich cuisine and entertainment scene.
