Cheap pretty women dangerous country, violence day and night.Foreigners shouldn't go to El Salvador unless they have a death wish.Locals very friendly though but militants everywhere.

Homes unfurnished in safer areas rent for over $1000 USD a month. Average lot size 5000sq ft, living space 1500 to 2000 sq ft., two car garage, no AC, small yard.
I have not found US standard home for less. Housing is not inexpensive as listed in these cost items.
