To get back on a reasonable budget I had to take the chicken bus to La Libertad which is the closest town that has a supermarket. The 20-30 minute ride was only 25 cents. El Salvador does not receive many tourists yet and it is amazing to see all the people who stare while u are riding the bus. But a quick smile and they smile back and everything seems right. The supermarket was large and really nice, actually the best one I have been in while traveling thru Central America. Felt like a kid in a candy store and bought too much but still cheaper than eating out even though two large burritos is only $3.
