San Salvador – Estación Ceiba de Guadalupe

Estación Ceiba de Guadalupe is a useful location to know. If you are routing through San Salvador then chances are you will pass this location. Essentially it is an intersection of two main roads: the Bulevar Monseñor Romero and the Panamerican highway.

 

One great perk about this spot is how close it is to the San Benito Tica Bus station. If you are arriving from an international destination by Tica Bus, you can easily grab a taxi in the morning for just a few dollars to this spot and wait for your bus!

 

From Santa Ana to El Tunco (or La Libertad or El Zonte) 

When coming from Santa Ana (or Ahuachapán, Sonsonate) and heading out to the beaches, have the bus driver drop you at the Parrada Ceiba. Walk across the overpass to the other side of the highway to grab a connecting bus headed towards the coast. Buses are constantly driving past and they stop in a general location so ask where the best spot is for you to stand for your destination and so just keep your eyes pealed for your bus number. The microbus to Sunzal will pas this spot – look for the 102A special service microbus (see photos). The price is $1.50. If you are headed to El Zonte you can get off the microbus in Sunzal and cross the highway, where you will wait for the 192 to pass. *be aware that the last 192 of the day passes around 5:30 pm so you should be leaving San Salvador before 4:30pm to make it all the way to El Zonte.

If you are coming from the beach and heading to Santa Ana watch for the Red TUDO bus. It’s A/C and pretty quick and also has music videos!

 

City bus to Terminal de Oriente

To get to Terminal de Oriente take bus 42A. Just ask where you need to stand to grab it. Each bus number has a general spot that they pull up to as they drive past. Heads up, this bus goes through the core of San Salvador and through a less safe area and arriving at Terminal de Oriente which is also know as a sketchy area. Use at your own discretion. Should you decide to take this route best to keep you new iPhone or fancy camera in your pocket.

FINE PRINT

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!
