El Mirador de La Giralda at La Cordillera Del Bálsamo.
We'll pick you up at your hotel in San Salvador and head to our destination in Talnique. This is a short but scenic ride (23 kms/about 30 mins.), across a breathtaking mountain range.
Upon arrival you will have a brief introduction to the world of international falconry through a small presentation, before we start our unique adventure. We will have an unforgettable hike through some of the most beautiful trails in the country. In the meantime, a magnificent Harris’ Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus) follows right behind, flying from tree to tree or landing in your gloved fist.
You will feel the adrenaline rush as these tenacious predators glide graciously through the air directly towards you. You will witness the stalking, the chase, and the dramatic strike as these raptors try to seize the quarry with their sharp talons. Cadejo Adventures takes you to the ancient and wonderful world of Falconry (an ancient art recently declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO), with a unique Salvadorian flavor.
If the weather conditions are favorable the hawks might treat us to a soaring show, a behavior that often leads to spectacular stoops at the rabbit or pigeon lures.
This hands on approach will help you understand the role that modern falconers play in the conservation of raptors, and it will expand your knowledge about these majestic predators in their natural environment.
