I have read vague guidance that it is possible to get from San Salvador to Alegria by bus, but not clear whether the changeover is in Villa El Triunfi de Santiago or Santiago de Mario.....or if there is another better option. We are open to bus or minibus. We will be travelling in Feb or March. Thanks for any guidance in advance!
does anybody know a car rental company that rents car with driver? I don't mind driving myself but my wife is afraid... Plus we arrive at 10h30PM at night and driving at night is not recommend, and the only hotel close to the airport is 200CAD per night

I have been doing extensive research, and I have been alarmed by what appears to be a terrible security situation, particularly in Soyapango. I am looking for any insights from people who live in El Salvador, or whom have travelled there recently. I am…
My fiancé and I are hoping to get married in El Salvador either at the end of this year or beginning of next year. We're spending twoish years travelling down through Central America (beginning in Mexico in October) and although we haven't yet been to El Salvador we've fallen in love with all we've seen and read about it so we are hoping to spend a couple of months volunteering there. While we're there we'd love to get married but we're struggling to find any information about it. What are…
We have all heard the horror stories of travel in Central America. I just wanted to share something good that happened to me yesterday.

I'm in El Salvador right now. So I thought I'd start a running trip report for myself and I'll keep adding to it as my trip progresses. I landed at El Salvador's International Airport(Comalapa). Clean and organized it looked and then on to Customs. Passport details entered on a paper card that is pasted into my Passport(Canadian 90days), plus a fee of $10 paid in cash(all prices in US dollars).
