    A surprise was to reach this place, my expectations were very low. Since it enters the plain all change, the site is super you notice that it was a city of great importance. See the central pyramid, games fields, and the area where they were the houses of the town. All of that combined with the crows and seagulls flying. A safe and clean place.

    Great place if you like to learn about the history of El Salvador and some of its early inhabitants. The place has a small museum where you can learn about the history of this Mayan city. Very safe and a great learning experience.
