Best time to book a flight to San Salvador

San Salvador Airport is an important international gateway and flights are mostly available year round, although a select few may only be offered seasonally, including to Montreal and Newark. Because of its tropical climate, temperatures are in the high 20s and low 30s throughout the year. However, there is a rainy season from June to September which may put a damper on your vacation.

Transportation Options

The airport is located about 50 km away from San Salvador and about the same distance from the popular beaches of the Pacific Coast. While your cheapest option, costing just $0.25, is undoubtedly the public bus, carrying luggage onto the often crowded buses may be more of a hassle than it's worth. A better option is the taxi shuttle offered by Taxi Acaya, which goes from the arrivals terminal to the San Salvador Bus Station. A regular taxi, also located in the arrivals hall, will typically cost $25 to go to San Salvador.  If you would prefer to hire a car there are car rental counters located in the arrivals hall.

Terminal Information

San Salvador Airport consists of just one passenger terminal featuring many modern amenities, including VIP lounges, shops, restaurants, bars, and ATMs. Waiting areas are modern and spacious, and free WiFi is available throughout most of the airport. However, one drawback to the San Salvador Airport is the long security and immigration lines. Whether you're arriving or departing,  schedule extra time to get through these busy queues.

What to see and do in San Salvador
