Very cheap to go see and it is worth visiting to support this site. You can do it in an hour. We ate a the little food stand. We had a pupusa and it was good as well as frozen chocolate covered fruit. It was a hot day...wear mosquito repellent.

The accidental discovery of a pyramid led to this excavation and what you see is a clearing in the forest that served as an ancient Mayan site

Stopped here after visiting Joya de Cerén (it's very close). $3 for foreigners and entrance includes the very good museum/interpretive center and access to the site. Museum panels in Spanish and English. Very interesting history here! Few crowds. Make sure you see the indigo factory before you leave. Clean bathrooms!

San Andrés is not a huge Mayan complex but it is very much worth visiting it. For starts, the museum is outstanding. The site itself has both excavated and yet to be excavated structures and it is very peaceful here. I enjoyed my couple of hours here and recommend a visit, especially because it is close to Joya de Ceren.

This was part of our day-round-trip from San Salvador to Parque Cerro Verde. It was very hot, so bring water on a sunny day. We were happy that they had a small ceremony going on the day we visisted. Beautiful mayan historical pyramids.

We saw this ruin after visiting Joya de Ceren. I have been twice and I liked it better the second time as I am beginning to put the region in some context... The ruins are mostly covered in concrete as they are made of a material that doesn't weather well (like adobe). There is also an indigo "factory" on the property but it is fenced off, but you can see how the tanks held the indigo and in the museum you can put the architecture into context. The museum takes some time and so it's not great to go to with kids as there is a lot of text to read. However, outside of the museum there is a climbing structure (next to the indigo processing area), there is also room for kids to run around while at the ruins - they are not fenced off. Ideally you would look at the museum, go to the ruins and then come back to the museum. These ruins are on the same river as Joya de Ceren - el Rio Sucio (dirty river), which was a poor Spanish translation of the native name which was "Ash River"... Seeing this ruin, Joya de Ceren and the Anthropology Museum in San Salvador starts to paint a picture of the region as a densely populated area from very early on. I liked it and will go back just to see the museum.

I came here as part of the Mayan Route Tour hosted by Salvadorean Tours which included Joya de Ceren and Tazumal also. This archaeological site is quite green and scenic with views of the Cerro Verde and the volcanoes. The entrance fees were included with my tour but the cost is $3 for foreigners if you decide to do it on your own. There are souvenirs available, drinks and even a cafeteria on site which is a great way to relax during the tour and get out of the hot sun. I enjoyed this site but it is not the best ruin in El Salvador, that would be Tazumal. Happy Travels!!!!!

Small ruin, with good museum. Note that ruins in El Salvador don't compare to Mexico or Guatemala but still fun to visit when travelling from San Salvador to Santa Ana
