Currency Exchange

In 2001, El Salvador replaced the Salvadorian colon (SVC) with the US Dollar (USD) as its official currency.

This change benefits all tourists and businesses since all costs are transparent and easily compared. $1000 USD in the United States is the same as $1000 USD in El Salvador - except tourists will receive a lot more for their money in this nearby country.

Credit and debit cards are convenient and relatively secure. Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted; American Express cards are accepted in some businesses. However, do not assume that you can pay with a credit card - inquire first.

Travelerís checks are safe and almost universally accepted, especially in larger towns and tourist centers. Again, it is best to inquire first.

A variety of US and Canadian banks, as well as Salvadoran banks, are available in San Salvador, San Miguel and Santa Ana.
