Whores are very cheap in San Salvador.Bottom end $2 mid-range $8 top of the line $15 and two for $30.I just love 3rd world countries.
#Anonymous on Mar 19, 2019 :
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.
#Jose Ramos on Jul 03, 2017 :
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.
