Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting San Salvador?

Renting a car from one of the reliable car rentals in San Salvador is one of the wisest decisions you can make. With an economy car rental, you can also visit some of the fantastic sites located in nearby towns such as Soyapango’s Puerta del Diablo, Delgado’s Celaque National Park, and Mejicanos’ Monsenor Romero Center. The country’s government has been implementing projects to ease road congestion. As a result, San Salvador doesn’t face a traffic congestion problem. You also don’t have to worry about struggling to find parking space as there are numerous secure parking spots spread across the city.

With a rental car, you can move from one site to another quite quickly and easily.
