Jessicasparks posted Moving on the El Salvador forum on October 24, 2014:
Looking to move abroad in the new year with my husband. But, we have some questions. We traveled to Costa Rica recently and it was too much like america and there were few jobs available for us. I am currently a teacher and he is a boat mechanic / in school finishing his AA degree. Our first question is. Is it better to drive or fly? Then, we want to live a "normal" life in el salvedor standards. Are there jobs for us? Plus my husband would like to be close to surf. Any ideas and/or comments !?!

Hey guys does anyone have any information about overstayed passports in El Salvador? Currently I am in Guatamala and I will be paying a fine of Q10 a day for my overstay in CA-4. I have heard El Slavador will not recognize it and will charge me another $114 to leave. Anything would help.

El Salvador has a flat rate charge of $114 but you'll have to pay Guatemala their fine when leaving so it's a moot point.

Hi, I need advice on how to go about to find a room to rent for a three month period. I am completing an internship at the PAHO/OPS office in San Salvador in Colonia Escalón and are looking for a room in a shared apartment in the area, preferrably around USD200/month. I am 29, female, Swedish, fluent in Spanish, non-smoker, vegetarian. I am working full time for PAHO as well as studying 50%. All suggestions are welcome. Thank you, Malena Rivero Friström

Thanks Busman7. Its great to know one can retire to a simple, inexpensive beach lifestyle. If I may ask, you mentioned you can drive from Canada. Have you done it> How long and any tips on border crossings in Mexico and central America?
busman7 replied recently with:
2cartalkers I am not much for fancy entertainment, just make do with the Saturday or holiday night music at the local Bamboo Bar on the malecon or local entertainment events. The local restaurants also have good food at good value for the buck. However in the city less than an hour away there are clubs, movies, dining and sports events. The main tourist time is Dec thru Feb mainly on the surfing beaches near La Libertad but never an influx of "snowbirds. However on holidays there are lots of locals from the city invading the beaches. The US dollar is the currency used in El Salvador, currently I use a debit card to access funds which I then deposit in my local account however once I get my residency my US bank has an agreement with a local bank where I can do a monthly transfer of funds for free. I own my home so no rent, the electricity bill can only be paid in cash but other bills can be paid by debit/credit card though I usually pay everything in cash.
