chaselagarde initially posted:
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

themayor commented on the Expat Report Retirement in La Libertad, El Salvador
Retirement-in-La-Libertad
What have been the most rewarding aspects of being retired abroad?
Cheap living, palm trees, beach, house with pool, living near the beach 1/2 hr from the airport and the capital city San Salvador. (Continue)
themayor replied most recently with:
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.

runi initially posted:
Hello everyone! I have lurked in this community for a little while and am glad that there is a community of Ex-pats online that I can reach out to. I also signed up for the internations.org website, so I will likely crosspost there. I am a recent university graduate and I am looking to find work in El Salvador, hopefully sometime next year. I am trying to start my footwork early and also get some idea of the chances that I have and am looking for any suggestions and information. I have visited the country once before for five weeks when I volunteered teaching English to 1st-5th graders. I have a bachelors degree and working experience in Graphic Designer. I also have a minor in Education. I'm interested in teaching in either of these areas. My boyfriend lives in El Salvador and we hope to start a life together. I won't go too far into this sob story though. I have contacted some schools already, even if I have a low chance of being employed by them. For example, I contacted Escuela Americana, but I don't hold teaching certification... I am a native English speaker and I speak conversational Spanish. Any thoughts, ideas , suggestions, opportunities, etc? I know about call centers, but I am an American citizen and a gringa, so I don't know how well that would work out. Thank you very much!

Good for you. You never need to apologize for presenting the facts, and telling the truth.

For heavens sake GROW_UP! This is an adult "real world" forum. If your sensibilities are too "delicate" to deal with reality, then perhaps you should find a "dainty lady's" forum, instead. Personally, I agree w/ busman7. He's not being rude: just factual. Expats, with no professional qualifications, or self-supporting means of income, should go home, get their acts together @ home FIRST. Then return. They should not be allowed to compete against locals for local menial jobs. That young lady with her "college degree" , apparently didn't learn a (well-known) phenomenon called "topic research", prior to trekking-off to a foreign country. My best advise to her, get a TEFL (online) cert. (minimum), if she's "serious" about teaching in either Central or South America. Just the facts.:-) And, BTWhere's a "poor-baby" hug to you (plaintiff) . Cheers & Caio,

My are wife and I are moving back to El Salvador around September this year. I would like to get some advice on any reputable moving company from Northern California (Bay Area) to El Salvador. Any advise welcome!

Try this link: http://es-es.facebook.com/pages/TRANSPORTES-FLORES-EXPRESS-INTERNATIONAL-CARGO/129591773719229 They move boxes from LA to El Salvador. If they are like our local box-moving companies (I live in Maryland) they should charge for the box size not the weight and deliver within 4-6 weeks. They should also help you to move furniture as well. I have no personal experience with them so, do your Google before purchasing any service.
