We spent almost two weeks in Juayua across two stints in the town in large part because of this wonderful little festival. The town comes alive on the weekends and the Feria Gastronomica is the place to be!

Nice way to spend a few hours! Taking in some local cuisine with the locals! Not chaotic, wider variety than the regular food markets of el salvador! A lively festive vibe!

The best day to go is Sunday!! They serve you A LOT of food for just $5-6. Natural juices, live entertainment and nice ambiance. You can take a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from the plaza to the waterfalls: Chorros de Calera

I cringe when a person who likes to eat good food refers to them self as a "foodie". However this is for people who like good food. We are talking food that is artfully prepared, with drizzle on the plate and wilted greens. Throw in...More
