El Coral was named a municipality on February 20, 1997. It is a town that is characterized by its livestock practices, popular for its December handicrafts made from guarumo fibers, and for the stories and legends of its different communities. El Coral is located 239 kilometers from the capital and 100 kms. of its departmental capital.

It limits to the north with the municipalities of Villa Sandino and Muelle de los Bueyes, to the south with Nueva Guinea and El Almendro, to the east with Muelle de los Bueyes and Nueva Guinea and to the west with Acoyapa and Villa Sandino.

The economic activity is based mainly on livestock; About 85% of the municipal territory is dedicated to its development, with a dual purpose (meat and milk) mainly for natural pastures.

Also in agriculture, the cultivation of corn and beans stands out, and others such as cassava, sugar cane, quequisque and, recently, coffee.

How to reach?

Public transportation

If you want to travel to this municipality, you must board a bus at the Mercado El Mayoreo terminal bound for Nueva Guinea.

If you travel by private vehicle, head north on the Pan-American Highway to the detour located in San Benito that goes to El Rama and other municipalities in the central region. I followed this road until the La Curva junction, which is duly labeled. From there, El Coral is 12 kms. on the highway to New Guinea.
