I was in San Salvador for 4 weeks for a temporary work assignment. I have noticed that most people in Latin America are very friendly, and this is certainly the case for El Salvador as well.

Good websites:

    Beautiful place! We loved it. Only downfall is the beach is a bit rocky. Also, the rates noted on you description have increased but not by much.
