OK - I suppose your country is OK. RE:USA- no newspaper editors are executed, we vote freely, if the president turns out to be a wank (like Bush), we have avenues to dump him w/o shooting the bum. We have sanitation laws and good water. We have religious liberty too. Regardless of what you read, the King incident, and the Iraq prisoners, are very rare situations. FYI- King was a drug-crazed, big guy. The drugs made him even stronger. The cops were excessive, but not as bad as it looked. He wasn't in a coma. He just got the shit beat out of him. I suspect he had been in worse fights with "associates" in the hood. Also- the mid-east folk are legenday liars/exaggerators. They sit around the dinner table and try to out-lie eachother. To them, it's an art form. So, don't believe much of anything coming from Iraq. If you recall, the Iraq liars were telling the world that they were winning the war just as Saddam's statue was being torn down. We have spin-doctors, but lies are not really part of our character, except in Texas. So, El Salvadore is a vacation paradise? Maybe I will visit. I will be respectful, and will not drink the water.

I understand buddy - the surfing in all this, its that if you are planning to do a trip to el salvador you have to know this facts, cuz lot of people are not coming cuz they are really scared for what people have posted here, what I want to point is that el salvador is as dangerous as any place in the world if you are not well informed about facts, simple like that. surf its world class it you think about right pointbreaks. what else to say? as far as I read this whole forum about el salvador what people have said its stuff like unsafe, gangs, shithole, rape... so its where I focused in my past posts trying to explain the reality of things, and took as an example the usa as many of the people that posted the bad coments claimed to be americans or seemed to me that way, and thinking about usa as the model of a first world country where everything its kind and safe thought that compare el salv with usa would be the best way to clear the things out even if that comparison seems rediculous

its dangerous? yes it could be
handable? tottaly
waves? world class
cheap? very
accesss? 2 hours from mimi, 5 hours from LAX
distence between breaks 5 to 10 minutes from eachother
drinkable water? depends your stomach but I can say it is anyways bottled water its supe cheap its must the paranoia same as san diego do you drink water from the tap in san diego? if yes you can do it in el salv
swell? very consitent but small ( 3 to 6 feet swells) from november to february then its good all the rest of the year

night life? not big deal but cool if you know where to go

and the surfing in all this? - Guys, you have all made your points; now lets drop this pointless 'discussion', we've been around the loop twice already.

By salvadoreño , 23-07-2004

you are right - ok, however the case, rodney king was a criminal? lets say its true so then the officers that hit him were as criminals as him and its worse cuz arent they the ones who are there to protect us from criminals?, who has a gun with license to shot.. who holds more power in front of society and in general, police or criminals? we are stating here how safe and civilized is the police in el salvador and in USA and stablish diferences of reliability and safetiness among them, not the circusntaces somehow your point is very valid to me, the people that hit the truck driver where criminals too. and remember they are as americans as you are, different color but same passport! police could be bad anywhere and I say again here they are not like police in denmark there, they dont even have guns.... but police here isnt that bad, you will be allright if you come and dont mess with them!

I DONT BELIEVE ALL WHAT I READ ABOUT USA, AND PLEASE!! DONT BELIEVE ALL WHAT YOU READ ABOUT EL SALVADOR

not sure if ollie north was a good man but Im sure he was betrayed and used to stop the scandal, maybe he was the victim... but remember there was somebody behind him in a higher place....... so my statement its the same no matter the name.

and yeah I read all kind of books , all sides of the story

please check the news papers, we have had about 4 or 5 elections without bloodshed, that makes 20 years.. the war was over in 1994 and even before that elections happened in a normal way, there wasnt a bloodshed here for elections maybe since early or mid 70's . we are the only country that after a war as we had and the circustances we are living a "democracy" hipocrate in the political matters as every democracy in the world but at least solid about human rights! they are well respected as are in usa!. so again maybe you are mistaking el salvador with colombia or other latin american country plese be informed!

thank you to support our economy you are wellcome anytime and if you are polite in the water you will get smiles from everyone!

Not All - Not all police are crooks, but they are all arseholes. Little jerks with big guns. FYI Rodney King was a crminal. The poor truck driver (Reginold Denny) that the blacks pulled out of truck in retalliation and nearly beat him to death was NOT a criminal. Please remember that half our people did not vote for Bush. But our elections are w/o bloodshed. Olie North was a decent man. You probably read alot of revisionist history. Don't believe everything you read about USA. Also- I would rather bring $$ to your country than Costa Rica.

con respecto - Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Truly one of the best posts I have seen on this website.

By anonymous , 23-07-2004

I forgot - food its great! and simple
you will love pupusas!

still you are stereotyping - drug lords are mostly in colombia,, el salvador isnt colombia, as canada isnt usa even if they are white and speak english too, and sorry but as far as I understood.. somebody has to buy all that cocaine that is produced in colombia and bolivia to be distributed in the US, so its logic that there are some white americans that are the drug lords in usa... hum.. even I heard about certain agency of the goverment that has a reputation to lead the drugs traffic over there..oliver north? iran contras? ohh surprice arent they part of the people that its in charge of protect the nation and look for the well fare of everyone there?

police....dont say that its lame and was a unique case.. but what about rodney king.. I think theres not place in the world where police its honest.. def I dont trust a person that holds a gun and has license to shot it! police here in el salvador isnt that bad. after all, but all depends what you are into, are you planning buy some pot or cocke to party on that flat days and then you got caught? dont expect a high class cell, the cage here its a shithole! and its where you can usually find some gangasters!

el salvador as I said, its safe to roaming if you are well informed, if you want a tottaly safe place and know everyone around, better stay at your home and surf your local break, simple dont travel. when you take a plane to somewhere you know all its uncertain, its call adventure.

gangs here?, yes we have those but you have them too and the fact that are latinos or africans decendents of slaves the ones who are in them dont change the fact that all its happening in USA in the westside of your home so if you mess with them then you would get hurt, same here! so you could get hurt by gangs here and you would get hurt by gangs there if you are not member of a gang then they dont have to mess with you unless you are pimping in their territory or dealing crack in their corners same here!

el salvador is very dirty?, sorry, we are too busy tring to make it on our feet since...500 years ago, after been bloody conquered, and get our wealth plundered... and now we have to deal with globalization.. yeah the new civilized way of plundering... work force, buying power, potential market target.. its what they are plundering now as theres not much to plunder from the land so sorry if we are a little bit dirty we dont have money to clean and educate our people,, its a vicious circle! so hey why you dont come and spend a couple of bucks and help us to care of our resurces!! that money will pay some kids school! and maybe they will learn ecological ways tog et rid of garbage, and maybe the goverment will take serious the torism and start to improve the place a little.. but hey you dont mind about how dirty is the street if you are just looking perfect rights peeling right out front!

people dessapear? mm yeah in the 70's 80's we had a war you know... heyyyyyyyyy but what do you think this people in irak must be thinking? they must be wondering where they took his relative that has been acused to colaborate with the terrorists... is he alive or in abu graib? war its so pretty isnt it? people dont dessapear here as far as you know.. just maybe after a night of party but for half a day...

I dont really blame american people for the mistakes of present past and future goverments... but pray for wisdom for all of them at the time to vote!!

el salvador has pretty good waves world class but in some places is dirty and theres a risk factor and its different than usa very different.

Torture? - The so-called torture in Iraq was nothing compared to Saddam's mutilations and mass-murders. It's not even close. The fact that it is major headlines shows that it is very rare for Americans to act is such a way. Most of our prisoners are treated better than regular citizans in many countries. Look to your own part of the world for stories of torture. And is it us that are beheading people? No, it's the fukin raghead camel jockies. Anyway, some of the rudist people in America are surfers. No thats a disgrace! I don't think Bush surfs, but his daughters are red-hot!!!

By anonymous , 23-07-2004

Sorry, Dude - The shithole post was from someone else. I am glad that you are not bashing USA. An entire country can't be blamed for the actions of one moron from Texas. It is a sad fact that crime in poor latino/black neighborhoods is much greater than poor white areas. Whites sort of outgrew the "gang" situation in the late 50's. Gangs are still a huge problem in latino communities. We have a very small group of white power activists (idiots) and many are of lower education. Generally, poor whites drink alot of beer, smoke, and watch stupid TV shows. Latinos, however, are out killing eachother. Your part of the world is known for constant coups, overthrows, people disappearing, drug lords, etc. Some people blame the papacy for CA&SA's poverty. So, do you really think your country is as safe to roam around as USA? Howabout your corrupt police. Sure, we have a few, but down there is it institutionalized. So, how's the food?
