El Salvador is extremely dangerous. I woke one night in my room to find some drug crazed punk waving a machette. Had to fight for my life. Luckily I only lost $100.00.
Lots of gangs. Great surf though. Best in Central America.

La Libertad is a crime ridden beach town. The beaches are polluted and the town is filthy. Most of the buildings on the beach are empty and thrashed. The point break at Punta Rocha is a fast hollow right hander. Nice break but the beach is crawling with cracked out thieves that come out of the cemetery at the point. They will hold you up with a gun or knife. Watch out for this guy named Marcos with a missing front tooth and his eyes spread apart. He has been in prison three times for armed robbery. No place for female travelers. Most people paddle from Bob Rotherham's restraurant to the point to avoid being robbed. They will steal anything.

hmm, thats weird, Ive been in that place many times, and not only is the surf great, there and in many other beaches, but people have been really nice and friendly when me and my friends have gone there. Maybe you just went to the wrong place and met the wrong people, it can happen anywhere in the world... sorry for you, I really enjoyed it!

Im not sure about El Salvador is dangerous. It depends the places you visit. Some places are safety for tourist, with a lot of police and private security. Maybe you were in the wrong place and wrong moment. Im very sorry for your bad moment. So, El Salvador have great volcanos, lakes, mountains, nice restaurants, hotels and great night live, of course the best in Central Americas SURF.

Don't go to la Paz, there's a lot of gangs there. If you go to El Salvador go to la Union, you'll probably have better luck there.  La Paz is infested wiht gang members. It is getting better now. Good luck there and enjoy
