According to historical documents, this port in Acajutla was in operation between 1805 and 1900 until a new port was constructed on the beach about 3 km northwest. This port, or Puerto Viejo de Acajutla, marks a chronological space of 95 years of imports spanning the transition from colonial territory to the emerging nation.
