The 2023 Expo Mango El Salvador is set for March 26 at the Ichanmichen Recreational Park in the city of Zacatecoluca, department of La Paz. This family-oriented event is organized by the Salvadoran Institute of Tourism (ISTU).

The Expo Mango’s objective is to support agrotourism in Zacatecoluca and to allow local entrepreneurs to show and offer visitors the different products that can be obtained from this tasty Salvadoran fruit.

Zacatecoluca is known for growing a variety of mangoes, such as Panades mango, plum, apple tree, Cuma, lemon, pineapple, Indian, Mechudo, and others; they are all grown in the area near Ichanmichen.

The expo is the perfect place to try more than 10 varieties of mangoes, as well as different dishes made with this juicy fruit. This gastronomic event will have plenty of dishes catering to all visitors.

In 2022, approximately 40 entrepreneurs from the surrounding areas participated in the expo mango event. They creatively prepared different dishes, which included shrimp ceviche with mango, mango empanadas, rice with mango, Riguas with mango salad, mango sorbet, and many others.

The 2023 Expo Mango El Salvador is perfect for locals and tourists to visit the Zacatecoluca area and enjoy all the traditional foods or street foods prepared in the area, as well as all the mango dishes.

Furthermore, Zacatecoluca is about 39 kilometers from La Costa Del Sol beach and other fantastic tourist areas.
