Like other arts initiatives around the country, there are free classes for the local youth, and there is a variety of art made of various types of media on display as you walk around the interior courtyard; the current exhibition focuses on women and is thought-provoking and well-done.

This is a great place that offers genuine insight into the culture of El Salvador. The rooms are very basic but will meet your short term needs. Some rooms share bathroom and shower with room adjacent. Very friendly and helpful staff. You can enjoy free community yoga and dancing, and very inexpensive food on site. Also involved in the local... More

It was great seeing a beautiful display on women's contributions to the world. Also seeing the art pieces from the students there was amazing. Without a doubt this center is making a positive impact on this community.

A community center with an incredible mission and a tragic past. Make sure you find someone who can give you a short history of the center and of the surrounding area. If you have the opportunity to meet the sister who runs the center - DO NOT PASS IT UP. We had such a restful and enlightening trip to the... More

There is not much here for the visitor but they are trying to counter the domestic/political culture of violence in El Salvador. Visit to support their efforts

It was recommended to us to visit the Centro Arte Para La Paz when we were there in 2014. The Sister who works there was unfortunately away the day we visited, but we still had a wonderful visit and learned much about El Salvador and the Suchitoto area, its history and about the people. Peaceful gardens to walk through and... More

The CAP is a multi-purpose center that with the help of dedicated staff and volunteers offers all kinds of art/music/movement classes to Salvadoran youth, receives delegations from abroad, and displays local artistry and crafts, among many other things. Facilities include a hostel/dormitories, a cafe with WiFi that is open all day (when there are delegations), a kitchen where I'm sure... More

I loved staying at the Center! The people, the food, the amenities were great! I loved exploring Suchitoto and the local area and then being able to come home to the center every night!

We got to visit Sr. Peggy and CAP through a Crispaz delegation. Not only is Sr. Peggy and extraordinary champion for and with the people of Suchitoto, but the work that is done here is essential. Such a beautiful space with a lovely spot for a snack!
