Hi Taki,
By the way you are the second Taki I have met, the other was here in El Salvador with the peace corps and lived in Suchitoto for 2 years.
OK about your questions:
1) hotels and hostels range from $5-$10 to $100+ it really depends where you go.
2) Taxis in San Salvador run from $5-10 depending on where you are going and how good you bargin
3) Sodas beers and other bottled drinks start at $0.35-$2.50 again depends if you buy in a small store or a fanck hotel or resort.
4) You can find all the fast food joints from KFC to Burger king as well as the local chains of Pollo campero, mister donut, etc
5) Don't even ask about safety, if you are well traveled you have learned that any where can be dangerous.

I have been living here since 1994 and have lots of useful information about where to go, see, eat, etc and if you get to Suchitoto look me up at my internet cafe or restaurant both known locally as El Gringo.
Havce a great trip and enjoy El Salvador
