1. From San Salvador: Mayan Heritage Archaeological Tour

Visit the most important Mayan sites in El Salvador on a full-day guided tour. Throughout the experience, your professional and local guide will explain to your small group all there is to know. Start with San Andrès, a large Mayan city that was preserved by layers of ash from a nearby volcano eruption. Get a glimpse into the life of the regular Mayan people and learn about the drink of the kings. Then continue to Tazumal, the largest pyramid in the country with a unique drainage system created by Mayans. Enjoy its museum and explore important historical artifacts. Learn how Mayans dyed fabrics using plants at Casa Blanca, a separate archeological park but once part of a single community which included Tazumal. In Chalchuapa, see some Spanish buildings left over by the conquistadores. End your day with a meal in a restaurant overlooking the Coatepeque lake.
