We did this one pretty cheap. This was mainly due to limited movement between towns and the fact that dinner rarely cost more than $4. Here’s a quick breakdown of the El Salvador spending:
US Dollars: 351
Approx. Daily Expenditure (USD): 23
As a reminder, the entire trip budget is 40 USD / day. This is by far the best we’ve done at being under budget, and hopefully it will be enough to offset some of the more expensive countries. We’re hoping Honduras and Nicaragua will keep us on the cheap for long enough before we have to start splashing out in Costa Rica.
