Afternoon: Returning to shore, we’ll transfer to a local farm and learn about one of El Salvador's most important up-and-cmoing crops, cacao. Chocolate in its purest form, cacao is processed from the beans of cacao tree pods. In recent years, cocoa has been identified as a “super food" thanks to its high level of antioxidants and magnesium. Milk and sugar are added to cacao to make it the chocolate we all know and love. It has been prized in Mesoamerican culture for millennia. In 2014, the U.S., Mexico, and El Salvador engaged in a joint project to increase cacao production with the goal of providing Salvadoran farmers a sustainable livelihood. We’ll attend a workshop on growing, harvesting, and processing cacao, and then take part in the process of preparing a drink made from cacao beans. Next, we’ll go on an interpretative forest walk at Jiquilisco Bay with a local farmer. This wetlands biosphere reserve covers 24 square miles with 31 miles of coastline. The Jiquilisco Bay reserve includes mangrove forests, estuaries, sand bars, beaches, islands, fresh water lagoons and seasonally flooded forests. We’ll return to the hotel with time to freshen up and relax before dinner.
Breakfast: At the hotel, we’ll have a plated and served meal.
Morning: El Salvador is home to the highly endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. Estimates suggest that only 500 female Hawksbill sea turtles remain in the entire Eastern Pacific region, and Jiquilisco Bay is the site of their largest nesting habitat. To see first hand what we’ve learned about, we’ll board a boat and cruise through the bay (weather and tides permitting). With luck, we may see a few of the four species of sea turtles native to El Salvador in their natural environment. Afterwards, we’ll cruise over to La Pirraya Island in Jiquilisco Bay, home to a community of fishermen. Our exploration will be led by members of the community.

Afternoon: Next, we’ll depart for Suchitoto, a beautiful, historic colonial town with panoramic views of Lake Suchitlan. Suchitoto is often called the cultural capital of El Salvador due to its abundance of art galleries, cultural centers, and shops featuring local handicrafts. After checking in to the hotel and dropping our luggage, we’ll set out on a walking field trip in Suchitoto with our Group Leader.
