A lot of people visit San Salvador and ask for advice on where to eat, what to drink, what to do, and where to stay. Now that I’ve lived here all my life, I feel like I have at least some authority to tell people the best places to do all of these things.
Consider this document your ever-growing guide to El Salvador, what to do here, the neighborhoods to visit and the places to eat.
I guess you could consider this a guide for people visiting, and wanting to avoid the awful tourist parts of San Salvador, or you could use it as a reference if you’re thinking of moving here.

It’s a living document, and some bits aren’t done. I probably made mistakes too. Forgive me.
Antiguo Cuscatlan neighborhood
Here's a quick breakdown of all the neighborhoods you want to know about, and what each of them is known for in San Salvador(at least, according to my experience, of course). Click each one to open it up or collapse it. Please be around zones near to the San Salvador volcano.
