The Portezuelo Adventure Theme Park managed during the pandemic to get ahead again.
The pandemic that began in our country in March 2020, left many large and small companies bankrupt, even some had to reinvent themselves and change their field drastically, which benefited them.
But many private tourist places in El Salvador closed their doors as did public ones under orders of the authorities due to the national health emergency.
In Juayua, located in the department of Sonsonate, there is a very magical place that was kept closed during the pandemic and that today reopened its doors to the public.
We are talking about Portezuelo, a park that was at the brink of closing down completely due to the lack of tourists, but managed to use the time of closure to launch a maintenance and beautification process of many areas of the park.
Portezuelo worked to expand their services and make improvements to have many options available to tourists when they reopened. Today, Portezuelo has reopened its doors and is welcoming the public, but visitors must comply with biosecurity measures to enjoy the park while preventing the spread of Covid-19.
Jonathan Velasco, Administrative Manager of Portezuelo, informed us that this adventure park was born three years ago designed for families who wanted to get away and stay overnight.
It is located just 15 minutes from the city of Juayua, in its highest part where the temperature is 12 degrees. In Portezuelo you can camp and stay in various themed-inspired spaces, like those inspired by traditional native American homes.
Visitors can participate in many adventure, such as horseback riding, renting a 1970s jeep, or participate in a two to three hours hike, among many activities.
It is a magical field surrounded by pines, many trees of various species, and a variety of restaurants, including fast food and snack convenience store.
Its climate is very pleasant.
Portezuelo has a western themed city including a bank, a jail and shops from the wild west and which are used as rooms to enjoy a night among the stars.
Portezuelo also offers bicycle rentals and many games always promoting enjoyment while keeping social distance.
