El Salvadore has the HIGHEST murder rate per capita in ALL of Central America: 103 per 100,000. No thanks!
Yes. Thank you. El Tunco is definitely not for families. It is known in El Salvador as a "gringo-hippie" place. Cheap digs, cheap booze, cheap drugs, cheap dates. HOWEVER, there have been a few nice developments as far as hotels are concerned, in recent times. Unfortunately, there will likely be young dysfunctional tourists with sore and swollen egos milling about for some time to come.
And, yes, consider an area such as the San Francisco Bay Area, with a population roughly equal to that of El Salvador, having a weekend holiday marred by 200-300 murders, and you get the flavor of El Salvador.
