"It began with a love story...! I spent 20 years of my life organizing International Fashion Exhibitions in Paris and I was seeking for a new personal project.
There is no casuality in life...so I arrived one day in Suchitoto in El Salvador and that was love at first sight : for the small city, the people and for this old colonial house that was waiting for 200 years to be restaured..."
Pascal Lebailly, owner of 'Los Almendros de san Lorenzo'
Suchitoto is a beautiful colonial city which has been entirely preserved and that overlooks the biggest lake of El Salvador: el lago Suchitlan. Its colonial church, paved streets and old houses with white facades well aligned make of Suchitoto a unique and autentic colonial city in El Salvador.
But this is not a city-museum, it is a a lively place with warmfull people, a secure and peaceful resort with a special sprituality inherited from the Pipil and Maya cultures.
Don't be surprised that a growing number of salvadorians artists and foreigners have decided to live there.
Suchitoto has a theater and is known on the international scene for its Permanent and International Art & culture Festival created by Alejandro Cotto.
Located a 45 kms from San Salvador by a new highway, 3 hours from Antigua Guatemala o Copan in Honduras, 2 hours from natural parcs or from the Pacifc beaches, Suchitoto is a ideal base for discovering El Salvador and Central America.
