Walk among the ancient ceremonial structures of San Andres, a site constructed over 2,000 years ago. Not far from the city and close to other ceremonial sites, this is a good place to stop and take in some history. Hire one of the professional and knowledgable guides to get a true sense and understanding of the history and culture of the remains you observe. Bring sunscreen and find refreshments on site.

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.
