Where to stay in San Salvador

San Salvador has a reputation as one of the most dangerous cities in the world, so it's important to think carefully about which neighborhood to stay in. Most hotels have good security measures and are located in safe neighborhoods, such as Colonia San Benito, Colonia Altamira, Colonia Escalon, and Colonia San Francisco. In these tree-lined suburbs, you can choose from a range of hostels and bed and breakfasts. Areas such as Zacamil, Ciudad Zelgado, and Mejicanos are considered unsafe and should be avoided.
