I am traveling to El Salvador in a month and would love to Ilopango and was wondering if there were actual hostels in the general area as opposed to camping out in this area?
Hey all, I will get into San Jose tomorrow 12/12/12 and was wondering if anyone was looking for a shuttle mate or even if you would like to split a rental car. Also if you have any suggestions on an easy or best way to get there if I dont rent a car. How much can I expect to pay if I take a taxi? Is there shuttle services at the airport that you dont have to sign up for in advance? I get in at 2:25pm and not sure how long it takes to get through customs. So not sure what options I will have getting out of the airport around 3ish? Any and all help will be appreciated!!
Where is the station for the buses going from San Salvador to Suchitoto and how often do they depart?. Thanks!
I will be travelling to San Salvador on a last minute whim this Fri-Tue. If anyone knows of any family memebers or friends that I can pay to show me around that would be great! I just want to do local food, drinks and culture. I work for a large food distibutor in the US and can be considered a "foodie". I will write a short article in our motnhly newsletter which is nationwide with over 100,000 subscribers.
Any recommendations on surf tours? I am looking to spend some time around La Libertad and the "East".
Hi I am an American citizen married to a Salvadorean my husband was granted voluntary departure early this year. We are awaiting consular processing so that he may return legally to the US. I would like to await the whole process in El Salvador algon with my 2 children that we have together. I am clueless as to what i need to do before going and while I am there. Do we need visas to stay for more than 90 days? If so where do I obtain information on getting the visa. Plus what other documents do i have to have before leaving the US. I do not know how long the visa process will take and I would like to be prepared.
in May, I'll be overnighting at El Salvador International Airport (a.k.a. Comalapa International Airport or SAL). Unfortunately, I land around 10pm and depart the next morning around 7:15am. I'm hoping to find something more interesting (but safe too) than just a van/shuttle to the airport hotel and an early wake-up call. Any ideas?? Thanks!!

We already booked our flights and hotels in El Salvador because we would love to see it since it should be little but beautiful. We also rented a car so that we can go around by ourself but now I saw a lot of advises (also of the italian government)to NOT go around alone in El Salvador without local guides because it became to dangerous. And now I really don't know what to do.... Anybody is living in El Salvador and can give me some words about the situation? I know about the crimes but I thought that it would be most among the criminal bands. Should it be better perhaps to spend some days in El Salvador and than travel to Nicaragua which should be more safe?? I would really appreciate some help to decide! Thanks!!
We already booked 3 nights in a hotel in San Salvador but now I realize that in the whole net I can't find nearly any comment to the hotel. The name is Árbol de Sueños and it should be at La Escalon in front of the Hotel Radisson. Somebody knows it or had been there? Thank you very much!

Hi, I will be arriving in San Salvador airport and I really don't want to go into San Salvador. Can you recommend a shuttle service or taxi to take us to Suchitoto or some other nice town not very far from theairport, to spend our first night? What might I expect to pay for this transport? Thanks

I've read excellent reviews of Siesta, but none give a price range estimate. What is the (year 2010) range of room prices at Siesta? And what is the size and quality of the rooms for either two or even one person at Siesta? Thank you.
I am planning to fly from the US to Nicaragua this summer, pick up a friend who lives there, and both of us fly from Managua to San Salvador round trip. (Hablo español suficiente para defenderme, incluso para contar chistes!) Ideally we'd spend a week. What interests me most is the history of the 1980's conflict. What I need to know: 1. Are there any tour services in El Salvador for specifically political tourism? How can I contact them? 2. What's the best airline to take from Managua to San Salvador-a decent price, but safe also! 3.Any good websites you can advise me on? Don't need history, just practical survival advice for tourists: transportation, lodging, food, etc. You can also write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org ¡muchissimas gracias!
Hi, looking to visit Isla Meanguera over the next week but would ideally love to stay for two weeks or more... is it possible to find somewhere to rent with use of kitchen or is this a dream? Also, do we have to travel back to La Union for food supplies?

We will be visiting Suchitoto in early 2010 and like to hire an Eng./Sp. translator for one or two days. Is this possible to do in Suchitoto?
I am a U.S. citizen wanting to travel with my fiance who is from El Salvador, next year. As El Salvadorean citizens need to show financial status to apply for visa's, do U.S. citizens need too, also? Also, if we marry in El Salvador do we have to re marry in U.S. for marriage to be recognized? I want to marry outside, maybe on a mountain or hillside over looking the city of San Salvador during a sunset or during sunset on a beach there? Anyone know of such a place? Thanks for the response.
If you want to climb Santa Ana or Izalco I know there are police guided tours leaving at 11am. But are they leaving every day, even if there would be no other tourist than me who wants to go that day? My first intention was to visit Cerro Verde on two separate days (from Santa Ana) to climb both volcanoes. If I should choose just one, which one is the best to climb?
In a few months I will visit El Salvador and I have just started to do some planning. I will spend about 10 days in El Salvador and so far I think my itinerary can look something like this: Day 1 - Arriving in San Salvador around noon. Day 2 - San Salvador Day 3 - To Tacuba Day 4 - Parque Nacional El Imposible Day 5 - Parque Nasional El Imposible Day 6 - To Ataco Day 7 - To Santa Ana Day 8 - Vulcán Izalco (daytrip from Santa Ana) Day 9 - Vulcán Santa Ana (daytrip from Santa Ana) Day 10 From Santa Ana to Santa Rosa de Copan in Honduras (I don’t think I can make it to Copán Ruinas in one day) What do you think? Is it plausible? If I can get one or two days more to spend in El Salvador I want to go to the beach, but don’t know where. I would like to go somewhere with a relaxed atmosphere (where I can lay in a hammock reading, listening to the waves) and not too far away from the other places I plan to visit. Any suggestions?
