Immerse yourself in Mayan culture on this full-day tour to the Copan Archaeological Park. Leave Antigua Guatemala behind and explore the historic Honduran ruins.
Copan Ruins Tour
First thing in the morning on the day of our excursion, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Antigua Guatemala and set off on our comfortable bus journey to Honduras. During the drive, you'll enjoy a hearty breakfast to build up your energy for our adventure in Copan.
Arriving in Copan, you'll see one of best-preserved Mayan cities in Central America. We'll embark on a guided tour of the different areas of the archaeological complex, discovering the temples and the sculpted monuments that have been recovered during excavation. One of the most spectacular features of the ruins is the pyramid located in the Patio del Sol, or Sun Courtyard, in the main square, which was used by the Maya to observe the solstices and equinoxes of the sun.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site is full of Mayan sculptures representing the reigning dynasties: tree-style statues made of stone which were also used as sundials.
After touring the "Kingdom of the Sun", you'll have free time to continue exploring the Copan archaeological ruins at your own pace or to enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (not included).
We'll return to Antigua Guatemala for around 8 pm, where you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
You must bring your valid passport on the day of this tour to Copan, as we'll be crossing the border between Guatemala and Honduras.
