SALVADOR IS NOT A PLACE FOR GRINGO RETIREES...

El Salvador always fights Guatemala either #1 or #2 most dangerous country in Central America, although Honduras is nipping at their heels.... El Salvador is the most gang infested place in Central America. Even small formerly placid villages have MS13 tags and grafitti all over them. Never heard of marasalvatrucha? look it up and then think twice! It is irresponsible to promote places such as these as retirement havens to gringos who for the most part are monolingual and have never lived outside the USA. Even for us central americans, each country has a distinct ideosyncracy that can throw you off and get you in trouble. calling an item by the wrong name at the wrong time can make you the center of unwelcome attention. calling your kids patojos in Nicaragua instead of chavalos will sure perk everyone's ears. asking for chancho in El Salvador instead of using tunco will get you weird glances.... I could go on and on.....
