Life Of A Gringo Expat Living In El Salvador Blog

About Hugh Talley — Retired

Hello, (Hola,) My name is Hugh, I am 62 years old and have spent a great part of my life traveling the world. I spent 14 years in the United States Army which gave me the opportunity to visit and live in many countries. I have worked most of my life in logistics and fleet management. I retired in October of last year (2011).

My wife, Liz, is from El Salvador. I met her and fell in love with her when she came to work for the company that I worked for in September of 2000 and we 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 right away. Liz and I would visit the country 2-3 times a year and I would always feel peaceful, calm and revitalized from the visit. I love what the country has to offer, the wonderful people, the beaches, the mountains, the beautiful sites and the history to name a few.

I retired in October and we relocated here in El Salvador in November to start our new life. I think that this is a beautiful country and a wonderful people with a lot of potential and opportunity that is overlooked by many people.

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

Your thoughts, comments and opinions are always welcome and invitited.

  1. 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,
