Available in Spanish & English, El Faro is an internationally acclaimed Central American digital news outlet founded in 1998 in El Salvador. In April 2023, El Faro moved its administrative and legal operations to San José, Costa Rica, registering the newsroom as the non-profit Fundación Periódica. El Faro has hewed to the idea that journalism is important for the development of democracy, defending an independent editorial line that defends freedom of the press and expression and promotes a critical analysis of current events in El Salvador and the region. This has permitted El Faro to maintain an editorial stance critical of different governments, whether left- or right-leaning, who have alternated in power since the news outlet was founded.
