El Salvador is said to be the most dangerous of the central American countries at present. Most of the businesses are forced to pay money for "protection". One also have to be very carful when traveling around in the capital - San Salvador - as well as part of the country side. I was cautioned to be carful when going to the area "Ruta de las Flores". I still wanted to try this part of the country, and decided to travel to Juayúa and Conceptión de Ataco, which was really beautiful and rural. I had a wonderful time and also stayed at a coffee plantain owners B&B in Juayúa. See separate travel report to the right for recommendation where to stay and what to see.
