  • The Archaeological Park of San Andres, is located about 40 minutes from San Salvador on the road to Santa Ana. They are a series of temples (small pyramids) that are in very good condition and can walk in the surrounding area. It also has a museum where you can see objects used by the natives of the area in their ceremonies. It is part of the archaeological complex of the area.

  • Although the place is quite well preserved, new excavations are not and it is a pity that cultural wealth follow low Earth, the Museum is small, I would like to have a guide, but didn't see anyone in that work, regardless if you are a lover of archaeology and history forward, the entrance is very cheap , the place is pretty hot, wear cool clothes!

  • Very buitiful view the parking is easy and its just amazing
  • 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!)
  • Great and well maintained location
  • 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.
