Even though there are gangs in the country, and they are fueling most of the crime. The murder rate is mostly, not all. gang on gang. Gang members killing each other. Sometimes gang members threaten civilians and try to extract protection (renta) from the public. As an expatriate. I have never been the victim of a crime. Have never had a break-in or robbery. I believe the press has exaggerated the danger in El Salvador. I do not go into the interior much, and perhaps it is worse there. Certainly there are gangs, but I generally feel safe
