Galerías Escalón boasts three air-conditioned levels of upscale clothing and jewelry stores, electronics stores, cell-phone offices and banks. Grab some sushi at the swish food court then catch a movie at the Cinépo…
The Mercado Ex-Cuartel is a difficult place to navigate, but be patient, go with a friend, and find handmade hammocks and embroidered fabrics from across the country.
Salvadoran city life at full throttle, the Mercado Central is the locals’ favorite for clothes and electronics.
Stock up on Salvadoran history and literature in Spanish. There are four branches in the capital.
A very pleasant mall experience, with good nightclubs and restaurants.
