Joya de Ceren is very interesting. It's different from most Mayan ruin sites, no big buildings or temples. It shows how the Mayans lived their day to day lives.

Tazumal is the biggest temple in El Salvador and one of the most restored sites. Not a huge site like Copan or Tikal, but impressive in it's own right.

San Andres has a small museum with interesting artifacts. A few buildings are excavated. There is a large field/plaza area. We were there on a weekend and there were many families having picnics and playing on the grass. It was quite lovely.
