Day 1: San Pedro Sula - Copán Ruinas
In the morning you meet with your guide at the reception of your hotel. The transfer to Copán, located at the extreme west of Honduras next to the Guatemalan border, takes about three hours. En route you have the chance to enjoy beautiful countryside and to obtain first information about Mayan trade routes, social and political organization, as well as theories on their mysterious demise.

In the afternoon there is time for a walk through the picturesque town. Overnight in Copán.

Day 2: Copán Ruinas - San Pedro Sula
After breakfast we visit the legendary Archaeological Park of Copán Ruins, which consists of two main sites: the ruins and the sepulchres. Apart from Tikal, Copán is recognized as one of the best excavated archeological sites. Although Copán was much smaller than Tikal, it stood out due to its artistry. Learn about the impressive 63-step stairway with over 2'500 hieroglyphs and masterfully carved stelae. By now it is the longest Maya text that has been discovered. There is enough time to gain insight into the history of Copán and take some great pictures before we return to San Pedro Sula in the late afternoon. End of the program or extension of your stay with another one of our itineraries. Please ask for our special archaeological tours and/or extension programs in Copán or to Quiriguá and Tikal in Guatemala.
