Don’t waste time at the airport in between flights – make the most of your layover in San Salvador with this private 4- to 6-hour tour of El Salvador’s Mayan archaeological sites. Follow part of the famous Mayan Route to two equally fascinating sites, Joya de Cerén and San Andrés, and learn how the two settlements were preserved beneath layers of volcanic ash.

It was great to be greeted at our gate by Marco holding a sign with my name on it. He ensured we got through customs smoothly and got us to our driver, Victorino who did an excellent job showing us around San Salvador and took us to 2 different archeological sites. 5 stars overall!!
