EXCURSION DESCRIPTION

The archeological discovery of greatest importance in the last 50 years throughout Latin America: a Mayan village that shows us how the Mayas lived, as Joya de Cerén was preserved by nature upon being buried under the ashes of the volcano’s Loma Caldera eruption 1.400 years ago. Joya de Cerén is considered a site of first order of what is known as the Mayan Route or the Meso American Route. It has been recognized by UNESCO as Patrimony of Humanity. After this visit we will be transferred to San Andres, a ceremonial center where semi-discovered structures (pyramids), some mounds, and its historical museum can be appreciated.
