I had a great vacation in El Salvador. Thanks to my guide--Eduardo. He was punctual, professional, and very knowledgeable. He could make me feel better and much safer after I had been mugged in Guatemala.
We did the morning half day tour. Our guide was wonderful and was easy to talk to. He was prompt at picking us up and did not seem to rush us through our morning tour. He took us to two Mayan ruins and was also able to share cultural and historical information while we were driving between locations. Unfortunately the Joya de Ceren museum was closed for renovation but our guide was able to share a great deal of information with us as we walked through the site. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the Mayan history in El Salvador. I wish we would have had time to do the full day tour.
I had a full packed tour with the excellent guide Eduardo who proved a very knowledgeable companion. We saw the Mayan sites of Joya de Ceren, San Andres and Tazumal, the pre Mayan site of Casa Blanca and the colonial town of Santa Ana. While they are not on the same scale and most are only partially excavated Joya de Ceren is the only example I know of ordinary people's houses from the Mayan era, rather than religious buildings. We were also very lucky to witness a couple of celebrations of the Winter solstice by the indigenous community. I was also delighted to see the national bird of El Salvador, the Torogoz, perched on a tree!
Casa Blanca was interesting, although there remains a lot to excavate. Santa Ana was a good contrast to the other sights, being a colonial town, although it being a few days before Christmas meant that there was a lot of traffic near the center.
Senor Cesar was outstanding. He took very good care of all of us. He was very patient and knowledgeable and took great care to answer all in details. Thanks a lot for showing your beautiful country to us.
