Shops and restaurants

For the relatively small size of El Salvador Airport there's a good range of restaurants, cafés, (snack) bars and shops. A visit to the Tapacun Specialty Coffee House is a must for those hooked on coffee. Here you can not only drink excellent coffee, but also buy packs of coffee.


You cannot store your baggage but there's a lost-and-found desk in the Arrivals Hall.


For questions about El Salvador Airport, flight schedules and airport services you can turn to the information desk in the central hall.


El Salvador Airport doesn't offer any business facilities except for some basic facilities in the Taca Salones VIP lounge (faxing, copying, internet access). This may change when the second terminal is ready. The nearby Rancho Estero (see Hotels) has a conference room available.

Disabled facilities

El Salvador International Airport has excellent accessibility for the disabled. The airport complies with American rules and therefore has wheelchair ramps and adapted elevators and toilets.

Other services

There are exchange offices and some ATM's in the central hall.
