    • San Salvador bus routes

      by AndreaSalva Online Now Oct 18, 2014 at 7:52 AM

      Does anyone know about bus route #6 to Future City (Ciudad Futura)?
      I was told to get it at Parque Infantil on Calle Juan Pablo.
      Also, do you know what street or avenue this bus takes. I'm trying to find Future City on a map, but no luck. And I'm not very familiar with this area of San Salvador.

      Thank you in advance for any advice,

      arriving in san salvador , el salvador

      by MichaelH49 Online Now Feb 15, 2014 at 6:23 PM

      I ll be getting into San Salvador at 8 am and the connecting flight is not till 3 pm..same day.. Is it possible for me to get out of the airport and get a bus to the city center and then get back in time for the flight? Just to check out the ride and see the center from a bus would be great and would be so much better than sitting in an airport....I hear the airport is a great distance from the city...

    • Budget accommodations in San Salvador, Santa Tecla, Suchitoto, El Tunco

      by SDM19 Online Now Jun 26, 2013 at 5:37 PM

      I am planning to travel to El Salvador in August and am wondering how easy it is to find budget hotels that have rooms available. We've traveled a lot through Honduras and it's always been really easy to just show up to a town and get an affordable room when we arrive, but not sure if it is similar in El Salvador. I would prefer to be able to see the hotel before committing, but if it's not too easy to find available rooms, I'm thinking it might be worth booking ahead. We're looking for places $30 for a double. We'll be arriving August 17th, so hopefully it won't be as busy as the week before, when many Salvadorans are on vacation. Thanks!

      Also - we are coming from San Pedro Sula and planning on going to San Salvador-->Santa Tecla-->El Tunco-->Suchitoto/Cinquera-->back to Honduras..any thoughts/suggestions would be very appreciated!

      overnighting at El Salvador International Airport (SAL)

      by FlyingElizabeth Online Now Mar 31, 2011 at 6:11 PM

      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 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!

      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.
