InterNations — A Community for American Expats in San Salvador

Hello to all Americans in San Salvador! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in San Salvador? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in San Salvador which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: San Salvador is the place to be in Central America. The most populous city of El Salvador is a large city known for being an important financial hub of Central America, hosting various regional and international sporting, political, and social events, and much more! With the extensive road network, as well as the available bus and railway services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Colonia San Benito or Colonia San Francisco, for example, which are less than a 15-minute journey away from San Salvador’s center.

Although San Salvador has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in San Salvador, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
