The bus travel guide for Central America
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.
Travellers pass through here when heading to locations such as: Usulután, El Cuco, Alegría, San Miguel, to name a few.
Have a look at the photos below for one taken from almost every direction.

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!
