General Availability: Medium-High
Quality of Bandwidth: In cities, excellent. Everywhere else, good luck.
Frequency of internet in hotels: Medium. Always in hostels and mid to high end hotels. Not likely in small guesthouses.
Frequency of internet in campgrounds: Low. Only expect internet if the campground is attached to a restaurant or a hotel.
Depending on your budget, buy a USB modem or a research your accommodation in advance. Free wifi can be found, but free reliable wifi is rare. Get a 3G USB modem. Tigo employees flat out refused to sell anything unless you have an El Salvador ID card. Donít go to the official store, find a vendor.
