All our trainings are based on 6 key principles which we believe are the ingredients required for people to transform themselves into inspired change makers:

How to get here - by Bus
There are two ways to get to the platform by bus. The easiest option is to get the bus number 129 from San Salvador (from Terminal de Oriente). It goes via San Martín and terminates in Suchitoto. The bus leaves every 15 minutes.
 
Another option is to get the bus number 163 from San Salvador (from Terminal de Oriente) to Suchitoto via Aguilares. The bus leaves every 40 minutes.
 
How to get here - by car
The distance from San Salvador to Suchitoto is 47 kilometers and takes around 50 minutes by car. However this depends very much on the traffic as the route can be quite busy at times.
 
Go by Boulevard del Ejército (also known as Carretera Panamericana) and, when arriving near the city of San Martín, turn slightly to the right. The road makes a turn to the left, thus reaching a detour that goes over the road. Straight after you will see a sign that says Suchitoto. Then, turn right and go to the city of San Martín. From there you can follow any sign that leads to Suchitoto.
