  • Best Ever. Got todo he there Is awesome.....
  • It is a well-preserved place. Seen as it was the life of that civilization, since it was the area of housing. Everyday life.

  • That can see the way the Mayans lived, it is interesting to see homes of the privileged class of Copán, Copán Ruinas visits not might need to visit this place
