El Salvador is part of the Mayan World, and in this tour we will visit its main archaeological sites. Joya de Cerén was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993, and it is known as the “Pompeii of the Americas”. This agricultural community was buried by the ashes of Caldera Volcano back in 600 AD. Thanks to the excellent preservation, this site allows us to witness the everyday lives of the Mesoamerican agricultures of such time period. There is also a comprehensive museum on site.
We will also visit Tazumal, a ceremonial site which has the highest known pyramid in El Salvador (24 meters). There is an interesting archaeological museum with many jewels and 4-sided stone sculptures with embossed found in 1942 and dating 800 BC approx.
