I am planning to revisit elsalvador some time soon. I had visited el salvador in jan of 2009 and had a great time as everything was fairly safe. We visited soyapango and san salvador with out any problems. Im assuming things were a little better because of the elections and school being out and being around the christmas holidays.. I would like to know if things are always a bit safer around this time of the year. Is it election time? If not what time may be better?
