  1. I’m so excited (and jealous) about your time in Salvador, especially for those of you who are able to stay in the homes of real Salvadorans! I had the great pleasure to visit Salvador a few years ago, and I fell in love with the culture, music, dance, food and people. I look forward to returning at a future date, so collect recommendations on where to go and what to do.
