Tag us on instagram @centrocoasting! We will regram your travels and show others what your bus travels look like.
Most travellers will only know El Dilirio as one big giant roundabout. It is a common spot for people to hop off one bus and connect to another going in another direction. There are 3 different sides to stand on depending on where you are going and as long as you know which direction you’re heading in it will be clear where you need to stand. Lots of drinks and snacks available as well as friendly locals to help you know where you need to wait if you aren’t sure.
HELP KEEP THIS SITE ALIVE! We're excited to say that centrocoasting is busier than it has ever been. We have thousands of new visitors each month. But, this also means that our hosting charges are getting expensive! We donate our time every day to answering questions and pay almost all costs associated with this website out of own pocket. If we have helped, consider a small donation to help us keep this site going. Thank you!

We do note 100% guarantee accurate information. In general the majority of buses operate between just before sunrise until sunset. Times are listed when we have them, but remember, you are in El Salvador and even the locals say the schedules are 'loco' sometimes. Always plan enough time in your day for travel and plan to be at your destination before the sun sets. Avoid arriving when it's getting dark. Short distance buses will cost between $0.25 and $1.50 and longer distance buses $1.50-$3.00. Some routes offer more than one class of travel: regular class and especial which often has a/c and makes fewer stops but cost a little more. Also, know that you and only you are responsible for your own health and safety in your travels and the choices you make. Travel safe and travel smart - and have fun!

I have written a blog post at professorasparagus.ca about our 1st 1 week tour of the east of the country all by bus (we are in the country for 2 months thanks to a friend who has a rancho). The post is really meant to help travelers more than tell a story at this time. You are welcome to glean info from the post acknowledging my website as source. Cheers, Wilma
