  • It is definitely a great experience archaeological, interesting to learn a little of our history.

  • We walked the 1.5 km from the Copan ruinas, but the main sites, houses, were closed due to maintenance.So only a nature trail was open, which we did not do.  more »
  • 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.

  • Where the witch and nobles lived in beautiful homes
  • Best Ever. Got todo he there Is awesome.....
  • Archaeological site which is being studied, less developed but which allows you to see how the Mayans lived. It was the residential place of scribes, astrologers, shamans. Interesting layout of houses and how they were distributed. There are also current excavations and studies they are doing. There are 2 trails pea to make the journey, surrounded by trees which makes a pleasant temperature.

  • Although it may not seem it, it is an important place for the study of the maya civilization that is very underrated, the problem is that it is not given enough publicity and support for the excavation and scanning of the site. Here is the House of the scribe, found several tombs, as well as several objects that have contributed to this important part of our country information.

  • The graves of Copan are only 1.5 km from the ruins of Copan and must take advantage to go see them. Here are the residences of persons practising in the city of Copan, as the little. The environment is also very nice and some animal and plant species can be seen. Beside the graves also other ruins.
