Located close to the Guatemalan border, Copán is the main highlight of our cultural offering with the most elaborate high relief sculptures in the Mayan World and two world-class archaeological museums. The time tested skills of Mayan ancestors still exist today with specially honed skills for working with wood, leather and stone carving. The city of Copán has narrow streets, along with the brightly colored buildings and a friendly intimacy that creates a warm and inviting tourism center. The site of Copán itself, is the most studied archaeological site in the Maya world, through the city and the site you are able to truly understand the balance of life of the Maya ancestors and how they have influenced life in the country today. But Copán is not only the regular archeological site, it is also famous for bird watching, boasting the most complete aviary varieties of native macaws, toucans and parrots within Honduras. As well, you can enjoy out of the ordinary activities such as: going extreme with canopy and relaxing at the hot springs. Ninety minutes from Copán in the foothills of the Celaque National Park is a city famous for the presence of the “Lencas” spirit. This spirit lives within the city, the surrounding areas, the cultural relics and the rich traditions of the region abound. The colonial feel of the city mixes with the richness of the archaeology, four colonial churches, houses, streets and haciendas. It is worthwhile to invest some time visiting and exploring the historical treasures it hides within its core.
