Local culture

We are considering going to San Salvador next year and are wondering what the island culture is like. Is there a village where there are local merchants, restaurants, bars, etc.?

1. Re: Local culture

San Salvador is very laid back. Villages, or settlements, comprise the island and there are few retail options other than mom and pop types stores. However, they will be well-stocked with the basics as long as you aren't fussy about brands.

Yes, restaurants, bars, churches and the like, but again, very low key. It is a fun island, though if you are wanting to be entertained, perhaps you would best choose another island -- Long Island, Exuma, Eleuthera or Abaco.

Have a great trip!
