    1. I would stay within the resort. El Salvador is one of the most dangerous places in the world. You should stay current with U. S. Dept. of State travel advisories.

        this is our fourth time in El Salavador, we stay at Decamerion, and take several trips outside the resort and not have any problems. We are looking for places to enjoy outside of the tourist traps.

          This is a crazy recommendation! There is virtually no tourist crime in El Salvador, and by only staying inside a resort you'll miss out on the amazing culture of the country (you might as well stay home!). As someone who goes there frequently, I would visit the pupuserias in Olocuilta, the cevicerias on the water in La Libertad. For upscale try A Lo Nuestro. Some of the weekly gastronomic festivals are also nice.

            Thank you Keith we hired a guide for two days and had a great time. We went to several resturants and ate at the road side cafe"s { we call them the stew ladys} Went to La Libertad, Sonanatie, El Flores De Callie, ect... ect.... Our guide Francisico was great, we even went house hunting.

              Glad you had a good time. My wife is originally from San Salvador and I absolutely love going back at every opportunity we can. Between the people, the beaches, the mountains and the food, I'm always disappointed when the time comes to head home
