By Bus:You fly into Comalapa Airport, the biggest airport in Central America, which is located 45 minutes by highway from the city. Once you´ve arrived and do customs. Get out and cross the big parking lot. Then go through an open building to reach the road. There is a bus-stop. You can either take route 138 or 400. Do not bring a lot of luggage or large backpacks, though, the mini bus gets very crowded no luggage racks!!!!

The bus will take you from the airport into downtown, San Salvador for 0,70USD. It is slower than the shuttles and can take up to an hour to get into town. After you get down in downtown you have to take bus routes, either 42A or 27; though it seems that route 27 takes a little longer to get to the hostel...Once you get into this bus ask the driver or the guy who charges to let you know when you are in la UCA which is one of the most important universities in the city and there you'll get down and walk until you find a small garden called Capri Plaza. We are right next to it. It´s a white house two levels. We only have a small frog sign infront of the house.



By Car: It will take you approximately 45 minutes to get to the city.

First you head east for around 750 mts. and turn right at RN5S and stay there for 27km, you will turn sharp right to stay on RN5S for 11.3km and will continue on right onRN5Sfor another 200 m. then you will give a sharp right at Bulevar Los Proceres/RN5S for 270m and will keep left at the fork and slight left at Carretera Panamericana, turn left at Calle del Mediterraneo and look for the Campus of la UCA ( Universidad Simeon Cañas), once there look for a small public garden called 'plaza capri' and we are right next to it.
