To give you an idea of costs: accommodation ranges from $10 (for a hostel dorm room to $35 for a nice b&b hotel room that will come with air conditioning.

    Food and transportation is fairly inexpensive so for a nice meal out you're looking at $3-$4; while a taxi ride is usually around $6 (buses cost less than $10 per single journey).

    I can tell you that El Salvador is cheaper than europe or america in terms of bus fares (are like 0.30 cents) and even taxis are so cheap (no more than $4 dollars). Clubbing is also great and so cheap (no more than $3 dollars which includes 1 free beer). Not sure about hotels since I stayed in apartments but accommodation seems pricey there. Then again, Colonia Escalon is the most expensive neighborhood in the city.
