San Doloroso


Escote is the third largest city in San Doloroso with a population of approximately three hundred thousand people. Situated on the Pacific Coast, it has a relaxed and vibrant feel quite unlike Toronja or Ausente. Founded in the sixteenth century, the name 'Escote' - or 'cleavage' in English - was chosen in tribute to the subtly blending slopes of the mountains which forever loom over the city.


Miguel Vicente Ladrón - who served as President of San Doloroso from 1956 to 1990 - was born here in 1928.

Things To Do

There is a thriving night life and many bars worth visiting in the area surrounding the Plaza Mayor. A trip to the local monastery of Santa Maria La Virgen is a must for the culturally minded, and for the athletic there are hikes to the top of Mount Izquierda and Mount Derecha. Historians might like to visit the birth place of Miguel Vicente Ladrón and spend an hour or two in the El Hombrito museum. A notable port town, Escote has some superb restaurants and the best fresh fish in San Doloroso (which is available to buy directly every Wednesday at the weekly market).

Those who would rather hang out at the beach might prefer to head north along the coast to El Paraíso, a popular resort town where the young, the trendy and the beautiful hang out.
