San Salvador Secure Transportation Services

ETS Security Overview - El Salvador

El Salvador has progressed in recent years in terms of establishing a stable democracy. Since the end of the civil war in 1992, there have sweeping changes made to the constitution to ensure the country continues to make progress in the areas of human rights, health care, and education.

However, El Salvador has one of the highest crime rates in Latin America. Violence between gangs is common and targets are usually rival gang members or the military and police. While most gang violence occurs away from tourists and visitors, no location is completely safe. Most visits to El Salvador are trouble-free but there have been isolated attacks on tourists including robberies, car-jackings, and violent assaults.

Because of this, it has affected the economy and quality of life which in turn has led to doing business in El Salvador more expensive and has deterred international investors from the country. This, in turn, has created high unemployment rates which further increases the levels of crime.

The main issues to be aware of are petty street crime such and pickpocketing, bag snatching and robbery which can and does take place and the additional gang on gang violence that can happen anywhere in the country. Additionally, public transport is generally considered to be unsafe and should be avoided specifically at night. However, road standards are generally considered to be good, especially from major travel hubs to tourist destinations but the driving standards are variable so defensive driving and ensuring you have professional drivers with you who know the lay of the land is important.

El Salvador is unfortunately subject to various types of natural disasters, whether that be hurricanes, volcanoes, fires, or earthquakes. Between June and November, El Salvador is at a higher risk of hurricanes during the rainy season which in turn can lead to flooding and landslides.

Travel Security training pre-departure is suggested and is always included for free when utilizing our transport and Executive Protection services, please visit our Travel Security eLearning course for more information.
