El Salvador has a history of violence. From a short but cruel war with Honduras to multiple Coup d'états in the 20th century, and a 12 year civil war in the 80's. This made El Salvador gain a reputation of being an unsafe country. But, in fact, since the end of the civil war, 15 years ago, El Salvador has become a safe place for tourists to explore, with one of the fastest growing tourism industries in Central America. Nonetheless, crime is still an issue, with gang violence and drug trafficing major concerns. Always excercise street sense and caution when visiting el salvador and neighboring countries.
