In addition to the peaceful ambiance of the rural areas and its only town, Esquipulas has several attractions that are not commonly visited. The territory has important rivers, mountains like the Cumaica, Peña La Luna and Cerro Santa Maria, and two lagoons: Las Piedras and La Sebadilla. The religious festivities are held from on January 14th and 15th in honor of the Black Christ (also known as Señor de Esquipulas).
