Great place of Mayan ruins. This was a historic site that held religious importance. The elite lived here. Burials, religious sacrifices, and anything that was considered sacred! Find a tour guide to get more information about the daily lives!

I wouldn't make this ruin a destination place, it is quite small with one main pyramid, ball court, small acropolis, and some areas of excavation. They have a small museum onsite. I went on a Sunday, and there were many street merchants selling souvenirs outside...More

I thought this Mayan pyramid was awesome! There weren’t a ton of people when I went (on a Monday) so I was able to get some neat pictures without a bunch of tourists in them. I think this was my favorite attraction in El Salvador....More
