The city of gangs. Yes, im talking THE city of gangs. San Salvador is ruled by gangs, literally. There are speculations on wether the police or the gangs have more power. Gangs such as MS-13 and M-18 has more than 25 000 members and another 9 000 in prison.

If this was in the early 2012, this city would have made it on the top 1 spot on most dangerous cities. In 2012, there were on average 16 killings per day. Due to a truce with police, this dropped later to under 5 per day. Yes, the city is still very dangerous and should be avoided by tourists.
