El Salvador ATM issues

Has anyone else not been able to withdraw money from El salvadorian ATM’S using revolut (or other pre-paid cards)? I’ve tried many in El Tunco, La Libertad and San Salvador all to no avail. Some friends were able to use their regular bank cards (visa and mastercard) to withdraw.

Did you got any answers regarding your issue?
I’m planning to head there and use Revolut.

Just to update, I’ve been back from El Salvador and I was able to withdraw cash with no issues using Revolut from “Banco DAVIVIENDA” which has a little house as the logo. Also travelled lots within the country and never had any issue paying by card even in remote places.

However other bank ATMs did not work. With Monzo I was able to withdraw only from “Banco de América Central” a.k.a BAC.
