HELP ME FIND OUT??

by DESTINY2299

WHAT DO I NEED TO CROSS BETWEEN THE EL SALVADOR BORDER AND THE GUATEMALA BORDER FOR MY 9 YEAR OLD CHILD?? JUST HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE? BECAUSE HE DOES NOT HAVE A PASSPORT YET.

Re: HELP ME FIND OUT??

by easterntrekker

You should make sure you have a passport for your child . The rules are very rigid. We travelled from Guatemala to El Slavador and they looked for a passport from everyone.

Re: HELP ME FIND OUT??

by YVRDave

That may be the least of your problems. How do you get them back to the US without a passport?

Re: HELP ME FIND OUT??

by DESTINY2299

WELL I GUESS THAT IS ONE OF MY QUESTIONS TOO. . BECAUSE WHEN I SENT HIM TO EL SALVADOR HE WAS JUST ABOUT TO TURN TWO YEARS OLD, AND ALL THEY ASKED FOR WAS A COPY OF HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE BECAUSE HE WAS AN "INFANT" (UNDER 2YRS) BUT NOW THAT HE IS 9 YEARS OLD I GUESS IT IS DIFFERENT. . . HMMMM??!!

Re: HELP ME FIND OUT??

by DESTINY2299

SO IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A PASSPORT FOR HIM EVEN THOUGH HE IS OVER THERE AND I AM HER IN THE USA??

Re: HELP ME FIND OUT??

by rpbroz

I have been living in E·l Salvador for over 13 years now and have two children with my salvadorean wife. Your son should be able to apply for a US passpart at the US Embassy, he must have an original birth certificate, might have to be authenticated by Homeland security. I assume he was born in the US and os US parents? Let me know know of the details and perhaps I can get you some more information. As mention by others a passport is required for any minor to leave or enter the country. Anyway keep me posted or write directly to rpbroz@gmail.com
Saludos

What passport do u hold, at any country to get in or out you need the other parent's signed agreement notarized, before you decide to travel with a minor.

This is an international law, to prevent and making sure you have the rigth authority to travel with that person and make sure is not taken illigal.

Eduardo

Travel Tips for San Salvador

Can leave without trying the Pupusas!

by benquan

Pupusas are some kind of tortillas filled in with cheese, beans, or meats (or a mixture) and are El Salvador's #1 typical dish, especially during those lazy Sunday dinners when mom does not want to cook. Be ready to get your hands dirty! There are two varieties, rice and corn. Rice are more gluttonous and in my opinion a little better; order with a hot chocolate to drink and a piece of quesadilla (Cheese bread) as dessert.

Other typical drinks: Kolashampan and of course Pilsener, the standard beer.

Where to find them? Just ask for the closest pupuseria (all over). More famous sites: Los planes de renderos (25 min from the capital) and Olocuilta (25 min away).

Santa Tecla

by mikey_e

At one point, San Salvador was a small city around which there were numerous other towns and municipalities. One of these was Santa Tecla, a quaint, quiet town to the west of historic San Salvador. Since the end of the Civil War and the massive increase in construction, the city of San Salvador has engulfed many of the surrounding urban centres and there is now nothing more than a line on a map that separates the inhabitants of the various areas. Santa Tecla blends seemlessly into the rest of the country's capital, but that does not really mean that it is wholly a part of San Salvador. This municipality is an oasis from the violence, pollution and congestion of historic San Salvador, with cute Colonial-style homes and shops. Visitors to the city will be amazed by the slower pace of life and quieter atmosphere offered by this town beneath beautiful hills. An interesting note is that, despite the beauty of the surrounding foothills, there is currently a ban on building in the elevated areas of the municipality. This is because tremors, earthquakes and heavy rains have made the region particularly prone to landslides.

Military Musuem at the El Zapote Barracks

by malecon

The military history of El Salvador may not be for everyone and can be depressing the more you know. In this museum the evolution of weapons and equipment used by the El Salvador Army is shown thru displays in a series of individual rooms. The origins of the weapons spans the globe, including the U.S.

Interesting exhibits include:
1) Domingo Monterrosa Barrios - Commander of the elite Atlacatl Battalion. Does the name El Mozote mean anything to you?
2) "Soccer War" with Honduras.
3) FMLN - Farabundo Marti National Liberation - Weapons used including a U.S. M-16 that ended up in guerillas hands after being lost in Vietnam. The FMLN went to Vietnam for training. Also land mines used during the civil war. Note that we are told that there are no more land mines in El Salvador. But seeing a one-legged man is not uncommon.
4) Popemobile - Built for the Pope's 1983 visit. Said to be the strongest ever built. Built like a tank. Could withinstand a roadside mine blast. These were the worst of times in El Salvador.
5) One corner of the barracks was bombed to quel a revolt during the civil war. This is not part of the tour but someone in-the-know can show you where the shells landed.
6) Relief map of the country of El Salvador.
7) Large park and memorial to heroes of the war of independence from Spain in 1821. Built over a Mayan pyramid with the contours of the pyramid clearly descernable.
8) The old Presidential Palace is visible. Vacated in 2001 after an earthquake compromised its integrity. Now falling into disrepair but plans are to create into a museum.

Museo de Arte de El Salvador (MARTE)

by MalenaN

The Museum of Modern Art is situated within walking distance from the Museum of Anthropology so it is convenient to visit them both on the same day, and they are both worth a visit.
The museum opened up in 2003 and has a permanent exhibition of about 250 sculptures and paintings by El Salvadorian artists. There are also temporary exhibitions. Outside the museum are the Monument of Revolution and the Monument of Liberty. There is also a restaurant and a shop in the museum.

The museum is open on Tuesdays - Sundays between 10 - 18.
Admission was 1.50 dollars (June 2009).

Visit Souchi -- a short hop from the capital

by SESM

This lovely village is close to San Salvador. Besides the view of Lake Souchitan, the town is filled with interesting contemporary art. The Posado is a great place to stay and provides a lovely setting for a meal overlooking the lake. There's a tiny vest-pocket park that is filled with unique sculpture.
