"Expats in San Salvador often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to. The language barrier can be a challenge, as Spanish is the primary language spoken in the country. Additionally, the local customs and traditions can be difficult to understand and navigate. Expats may also find the local infrastructure to be lacking, with unreliable public transportation and limited access to modern amenities. Finally, the high levels of crime and violence in the city can be intimidating and make it difficult to feel safe," remarked another expat in San Salvador, El Salvador.
