Esquipulas Things to See and Do

follow us

Apart from the essential viewing of the Black Christ, there are a few non-religious activities on Esquipulas. The park in front of the basilica is a nice place to rest in the shade, although this can get pretty busy on the weekend and during the pilgrimage. As well as the modern shopping mall La Perla (2a Avenida opposite the Restaurante Santa Fe) there is a huge market area filled with kitsch Jesus candles, jewelry, candy and t-shirts. At the end of 11a Calle there is a ‘hands of peace’ monument as it was here the Esquipula II (Peace) Accord was developed in the mid 1980s, a framework of conflict resolution for Central America.
