If one is nearby - and interested in archeology - then, as the saying goes, "why not?" It's certainly not Tikal...or Chichén Itza...or any other marginally significant site in and around Central America. But for 15-20 minutes...why not? (This said, note that foreigners should be prepared to pay 300% of the local price to get in -- worth it? Maybe...as long as one appreciates archeology...really appreciates archeology!)

Very nice for people trying to get into culture. Very close to Joya de Ceren as well so it is easy to hit both sites in one day.
Beautiful views good parking easy access.
It's a most if you're visiting El Salvador
