El Salvador: Coffee Plantation Along Ruta de las Flores

El Salvador is famous for its coffee and most of the plantations are in the highlands along the Ruta de las Flores. As we drove the first sections of the route, there were extensive mountain sides just completely covered with massive coffee bushes and trees, growing under nut trees and covering the slopes of the valleys as far the eye could see. Sadly, the trip along the entire Ruta de las Flores was cut short by a huge mudslide that completely blocked the road probably for a day if not longer.
