Sepulturas, Copan Ruinas

4.0
Head away from the main ruins of Copan to see Sepulturas, a rare example of the ruined residential structures belonging to the Mayan elite and middle classes. A picturesque 1.5 km (.9 mi) path brings you to this quieter spot. Tour the ruins, have a picnic, and watch for the many exotic birds, such as the scarlet macaw. Admission is included in the price for the main ruins. Plan your Sepulturas visit and explore what else you can see and do in Copan Ruinas using our Copan Ruinas trip planning website .

  • It lies 200 metres from the Archaeological Park, they gave us a Tour to show us all the ruins of the houses where they lived the Maya, the people of the town, the settlement was large, houses were basically dormitories and only used them to sleep in beds of Stone king zise, we did a walk and we could see the Copan River, were 1 hour and it was well revealing. I liked to know more about the way of life of our ancestors.

  • A kilometre from the archaeological site of Copán. You enter the entrance to Copan. There is a road parallel to the highway to arrive. Because it is housing structures is much smaller and spectacular that Copan.
