Once a bustling and important link on the national railway, today scenic El Sauce is just a sleepy mountain town cut straight from an Old West movie. The town bursts to life on the third Sunday in January, when pilgrims from all over Nicaragua. Guatemala and beyond make their way here to pay their respects to El Señor de Esquipulas (The Black Christ).

The image, to which all manner of miracles have been attributed, arrived in El Sauce in 1723 from Esquipulas, Guatemala, and refused to move another centimeter upon arriving at this lovely spot. The beautiful, if not flashy, 1828 Templo de El Sauce was declared a national sanctuary in 1984, but burned in 1999. The Black Christ, however, was saved, and all of El Sauce pitched in to rebuild the sanctuary.

The gateway to the Cordillera Dariense, El Sauce is surrounded by cool green mountains strewn with waterfalls, and several hiking trails begin in town.

Ask around for directions to the trailhead through the year-round green of the forest to La Piedra de San Ramón. which starts about 3km north of town. If you’re looking for more excuses to stay, you could take a taxi 6km from town to Río Grande. with a swimming hole.

Walking distance from town, Finca Campestre Cárdenas has a small petting zoo and a swimming pool. It’s also a vivero (plant nursery), and brings in a local crowd for its Sunday afternoon barbecue.
