Life Of A Gringo Expat Living In El Salvador Blog

  Hugh Talley — Retired, living in El Salvador,

Hello, (Hola,) My name is Hugh, I am 68 years old. While serving in the U.S. Army for 14 years, I had the opportunity to visit and live in many countries around the world, which was a wonderful experience for me.  Once that I had experienced the excitement of world travel, I could not get enough of it.  

Most of my life, I have worked in logistics and fleet management, I received my logistics training in the Army, I found it very rewarding and continued in the field after leaving the military. I retired in October of 2011 after 19 years of employment with Titan America LLC.  

My wife, Liz, is from El Salvador. We met and began dating in 2002 and were married in November of 2004. 

I came for my first visit to El Salvador in March of 2004 and fell in love with the country. We would visit the country 2-3 times a year where would always feel peaceful, calm and revitalized from the visit. We love what the country has to offer, the wonderful people, the beaches, the mountains, the beautiful sites and the history to name a few.

Our plan for this Blog is to deal with life, sites, issues and opportunity in El Salvador as we see them. I hope you will join us on our journey through life in El Salvador.

Please shear your comments and opinions, this will help us to improve and focus on your interest.

    Hi there Hugh. I’m glad I found your Blog. I love it. I’m from El Salvador, well sort of, its a long story. Even though I was born in New York, I was raised in El Salvador until the age of 10. This is when the civil war got a little crazy in El Salvador, my family decided to move to California. I’ve been in Cali since 1980 and did my first visit to El Salvador just this year. I went for one week and wow! Let’s just say that I cannot wait to go back and visit again. I don’t know how to get around, and I was very lucky because my older brother who lives in Maryland decided to meet me down there and take me around so I really got to see some amazing places.

    I day dream about buying a house down there and eventually retiring in El Salvador. I love the pace and the people. I think life can be much better in El Salvador, of course I love California and will always come to visit, but there is something very special about this tiny little country.
    I look forward to your posts and thank you for taking the time to put this blog together.

    BTW: I have this idea of buying a property or land beach front, but this sounds like high heat. Perhaps I should look at other cities like Planes De Renderos. I’ve heard its nice a cool in this area.

    All the best,
