My new favorite spot for a great vacation, amazingly nice people, and fantastic, but rocky, beach. El Salvador is not the first place that comes to mind when you think of a vacation. With the various nation's warning about MS13 gangs roaming the countryside; you'd think it was still the 80 during the civil war. But, the Salvadoran people are absolutely fantastic.
One good thing about El Salvador is that it is not hostile to people of colour; namely black people. Though they have a history of a single leader many years ago, all but banning black people from the country, this was more about denying their neighbors from entering the largely empty country. Being extremely cognizant of any racism, I found the Salvadoran people to be extremely inviting to me and towards me. Grab a papusa and a coffee, and maybe a tree (along with massive amounts of bug spray and sun block) and you are 100!
