Getting Around San Salvador

Hopefully you arranged airport transportation when you reserved your airfare to San Salvador because there are not as many options as there are in other countries. However, you can board a very cheap express bus to get to downtown San Salvador. Note that this will take about an hour. The city has very long boulevards, and some can be a walking challenge for site-seers. For vicinity travel you can use either the buses or taxis in town. Make sure you negotiate a taxi fare before you enter the car, and carry exact change or at least some small bills. If you attempt to pay with a large denomination the driver will likely claim to have no change and pressure you to tip the rest.
