Lake Coatepeque or Joya de CerenI have a short layover in San Salvador, El Salvador and am being picked up and going on a tour by a tour company there. I have the option of going EITHER to Lake Coatepeque or Joya de Ceren. What would you recommend? I´d be interested to hear all thoughts you might have about either/both.

1It depends on what you like. If you haven't had contact with ancient cultrues, the Joya del Cerén site is very significant in antrhopological terms (it unlocked misteries about the mayas, etc. what was their diet, etc.). It is rather small - you could combine with a visit to nearby San Andrés pyramids). Coatepeque lake is a bit farther... but a nice volcanic lake. Welcome to El Salvador!
