As San Salvador has started to creak under social and infrastructure difficulties, the city of Santa Tecla (or Nueva San Salvador), 15km southwest, has slowly gentrified, particularly in the area around Paseo El Carmen, which has a young, artsy vibe. This pedestrian-only strip turns into a market each weekend, then into a happening nightspot, with food stalls, cafes, bars, restaurants and even furniture stores serving a noticeably relaxed crowd.
