San Salvador airport-safe?

I am traveling from DC to Belize. The best option in time and dollars is on Taca but there is a short stop and plane change in San Salvador airport, El Salvador. It will be me and my daughter...both women. Any advise relative to safety would be appreciated. I am hesitant to book this flight for this one concern. thank you so much!

Sorry - but that is ridiculous. It is an airport. Why wouldn't you be safe.??

We have flown the other way from Panamá to Costa Rica via San Salvador staying over night in a hotel in the city. Never gave safety a thought. My only regret was that we didn't have time to see more of that beautiful country El Salvador which was the original home to several of my Spanish speaking friends who now live in Australia.

They tell me their greatest fear when going home to El Salvador is having to transit through the US!!!!
