  • Pleasant square with local dressed salesgirls with bald thing and fabrics. Cosy outdoor cafés on what food and drinks. A visit to the roof of the cathedral is worth it and gives a nice view over the plain and the city. There are plenty of pin vending machines for the local currency and dollars.

  • I really enjoyed my stay in Copan because each day I would go out and stroll around the square and sometimes sit in its central shady park. This is one of the most beautiful squares in Central America...  more »
