Day 3
Joya de Ceren Archeological Site – San Andres Acropolis – Lake Coatepeque

This third day of your tour starts at the Joya de Ceren archaeological site, which in 1993 was declared a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO. This pre-Columbian Maya farming village is so well preserved that it is the only place where you can appreciate the day-to-day life styles of those former inhabitants. Joya de Ceren was buried by several volcanic eruptions that left the village under 14 layers of ash. The villagers were apparently able to escape in time – no bodies have ever been found – although they left behind utensils, ceramics, furniture, and even half-eaten food in their haste to leave. Then will we take off to one of El Salvador’s principal Mayan ruins, the San Andres acropolis, which was inhabited by Maya between 600 and 900 AD; there is also a small museum on site. In the afternoon you will have optional have lunch at Lake Coatepeque, with an amazing view over the lake! …which is a beautiful, sparkling blue crater-shaped body of water that is 6 kms. wide and 120 meters deep, surrounded by the steep green slopes of the Izalco and Santa Ana volcanos.
