The municipality is a post-colonial provincial hill station and designated as the Summer Capital of Negros Occidental, a very popular tourist site amongst locals and foreigners seeking a moment of serenity away from the hustle-bustle of huge cities.
Although a small town, the town of Don Salvador Benedicto has seen a rise in its municipal economy thanks to tourism and local agriculture. Due to its high altitude like Baguio City, the town can support crops that grow in temperate areas, making it ideal for a multitude of farming businesses. Tourism is on the rise for the town especially when travellers head out into the heart of the province.
