History of El Salvador
El Salvador is a small but very densely populated country in Central America, bordered by Honduras and Guatemala. Once part of the Mayan Empire, the country was taken over by Spain in the 16th century. El Salvador has suffered large political and economic turmoil since that time, with a history of military coups, revolts, and Authoritarian leaders. After a long civil war, El Salvador gained its independence in 1992, and has since gained some stability in their government.
One of the largest facets of El Salvador’s economy is its agriculture. Early in its history, the indigo plant was the main export from the land. In modern times, coffee has overtaken the indigo plant as the primary source of income. However, increases in manufacturing have lessened the country’s reliance on coffee. Industry is continuing to grow in El Salvador, spreading their economy out even more and curing some of the poverty the land has suffered throughout its history. Since 2001, the main currency of the land is the US Dollar.
Many countries have items that are prohibited or restricted from being imported and exported. These items may include food, pets and medications and customs regulations are subject to change at any time. When traveling to El Salvador you want to be sure to research all customs regulations. This can be done with your local embassy or the country’s consulate prior to relocating. You can also visit VisaHQ.com, they offer customs regulations for numerous countries.
