In the last couple of months, things have gotten better, and the country is starting to open up again.
On August 24, El Salvador reopened its economy. Essential services such as medical assistance, grocery stores, pharmacies, public transportation, and gas stations are operating and available to the public. In-person classes for schools and universities remain suspended through December 31. Taxis and other private transportation companies are operating normally. The Salvadoran government recommends wearing a mask at all times.
Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport in San Salvador plans to reopen international passenger flights on September 19. After a six-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government announced Monday. I also understand that the resorts and beaches will open up on September 19.
Elizabeth and I went to San Salvador and went to lunch with our friend this week. It was very nice to get out for the day. We went to a nice little restaurant in the mountains overlooking San Salvador. We had an enjoyable meal, and the scenery was beautiful.
Elizabeth and I are looking forward to the remainder of this year, and we are hoping to spend time at the beach and enjoying the sites of El Salvador. I plan on writing more posts when we can get out and move around more freely.
I have added some pictures. We hope that you enjoy them.
Stay safe and enjoy life.
