For travelers who have guts, visiting El Salvador can be a fascinating experience. Part of that excitement comes from knowing you’re taking a risk when you visit the country that is known for being one of the most dangerous places in Central America.
Another aspect of that excitement comes the women of El Salvador being among the most alluring and attractive in the region. That means that dating a woman from El Salvador can be very rewarding, but it also comes with several risks.
The good news for you is that most travelers who visit Latin America skip El Salvador entirely, meaning there’s less competition for you. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about where to find and how to talk to Salvadoran women.
What Are Salvadoran Women Like
If you visit El Salvador, you’re going to see stunning hot Salvadoran girls almost everywhere you go. Sure, the girls from Costa Rica or Panama can compete, but many consider the women of El Salvador to be among the very finest in Latin America.
So, what are Salvadoran women like?
Latina women are typically slender with long dark hair, tan skin, and clearly defined curves. Many women from this region also have strong European ancestry, and therefore have a more Caucasian look to them than most other girls in Latin America do.
Encountering hot Salvadoran women with light skin will not be uncommon when you visit the higher end clubs in San Salvador. There you can find girls who are middle to upper class.
Salvadoran ladies also have fun personalities with a strong emphasis on living in the present moment. That is because the country has high levels of crime, so many people living in El Salvador have the mindset that there might not be a tomorrow.
Where to Meet Salvadoran Girls
Meeting a good Salvadoran girl will require you to do three things:
• staying in El Salvador for a minimum of one week
• knowing how to be safe in the country
• learning to speak basic Spanish
The reason you need to stay in El Salvador for at least a week is that many women in the country are more conservative, and may be wary of you at first. They will be more likely to move things to the next level after the second or third date, so you need the extra time to make that happen.
It’s also important that you are at least conversational in Spanish because many girls in El Salvador don’t know English or any other languages. Knowing Spanish is also essential for safety reasons – traveling to El Salvador without speaking Spanish is not advised.
Best Cities to Meet Local Women
There are two cities that you should consider going to if you want to experience the El Salvadoran dating scene:
• San Salvador
• El Tunco
San Salvador is easily one of the most dangerous cities in Latin America. It’s not a place where you want to make a wrong move. At night, it’s not uncommon for tourists and locals alike to be mugged by criminals or gang members. There’s a reason why even the locals travel in groups.
The safest areas to walk around in will be the business districts that have armed guards standing at attention outside. The problem is that when these businesses close down for the night, the guards go back home. That is why traveling through San Salvador at night is far riskier than during the day.
However, San Salvador is by far the best city to meet Salvadoran girls. There are six hundred thousand people within the town alone, and over a million if you count the metro area as a whole. If you spend at least a week in the city, you’ll have no problem finding and going out with girls.
Top places for meeting girls in San Salvador
There are many nightclubs to meet girls in San Salvador:
• Republik Bar
• the Alive Club
The girls who frequent these bars and clubs are middle to upper class and can afford to pay for their drivers and drinks.
Do not walk the streets of San Salvador at night! Hire a private driver to take you places which your hotel or hostel should be able to provide. Avoid the use of random taxis.
If you go on foot, always have a friend or a date with you. With its high crime rate and substantial gang-related activity, San Salvador is not the city to take risks in.
If you need a plan for meeting girls in San Salvador at night, go to the Zanzibar bar first on either a Friday or Saturday night. Girls will often visit the Zanzibar in groups, and chatting a few up and figuring out their agendas will not be difficult if you know how to approach women.
Afterward, you can head over to the Alive Club. It is one of the highest-end clubs in San Salvador, and the girls are beautiful and among the better off financially in El Salvador.
The Republik Bar is also a decent option for grabbing drinks. It’s not as big as the Zanzibar and is not a club like the Alive Club, but it still has a lively crowd on the weekends with plenty of attractive women.
Remember that to talk to girls at any of these venues; you need to know your Spanish.
As far as your day game is concerned, public malls are the best bet for meeting women. Again, exercise precautions when traveling the city on your own.
There are three different malls in San Salvador that you can check out:
• La Gran Visa
• Plaza Futura
The Multiplaza and La Gran Visa are next door to each other, and you will find plenty of girls going about their day who you can approach. You can then ask them to go out with you that night at one of the bars or clubs we mentioned above. Plaza Futura will likely have fewer prospects than either the La Gran Visa or the Multiplaza, but it’s still an option.
All of the cities outside of San Salvador are a smaller size. If you do decide to go outside of the capital, however, you’ll want to check out El Tunco.
El Tunco is a beach town on the Pacific Ocean and is a forty-five-minute drive outside of San Salvador. It is the town where the upper-class Salvadoran population comes to party during the weekends.
El Tunco also has an active surfing community and has numerous bars for you to meet women during weekend nights. Your chances of finding a girl to go out with will be lower during the weekdays, but during the weekends you should have the same luck as you would in San Salvador.
Easily the best online dating site to meet San Salvadoran singles will be AmoLatina.com. This site has thousands of members, hundreds of whom live in El Salvador (though almost all of them will be in San Salvador).
You can also try Tinder, but the girls on Tinder will typically be lower quality and less responsive than the girls on AmoLatina.
Tips for Dating a Woman from El Salvador
Dating women from El Salvador can be complicated because of the safety issues you have to deal with when visiting the country.
Always be on your guard, hire a private driver from your hotel or hostel rather than a random taxi driver, and during the day time stick to areas with armed guards. Preferably, you’ll visit El Salvador with a friend rather than alone.
To meet and date girls in El Salvador, all you need to do is act as an educated tourist. Telling a single girl that she is pretty (in Spanish) means you are likely to get her phone number or maybe even an instant date.
Many Salvadoran girls are intrigued by educated foreigners. They don’t meet them as often since El Salvador receives fewer visitors overall than other Latin American countries. If she believes you are an attractive and handsome foreigner, and if you know Spanish, she should be eager to go out with you.
To be on the safe side, when you do hit it off with a girl, do not go home with her. Instead, have her come to your hotel. You should also not venue change at a girl’s request, unless if you know exactly where she is referring to.
Salvadorian women won’t disappoint you when it comes to looks or personalities. If you decide to visit El Salvador despite the risks, the exotic women you’ll meet there will make your trip well worth it.
So long as you can be on your guard and be smart about how you travel throughout the country, you can make your trip to El Salvador one to remember.
