Copan is a Mayan archaeological site in Honduras almost at the southernmost limit of Mayan influence. It was occupied for a period of about 2000 years and has one of the largest and best preserved Mayan staircases covered in Hieroglyphs.

Copan was the first opportunity on our tour to explore Mayan ruins and it did not disappoint. Our guide was excellent, a music teacher from the modern day town of Copan, who helped paint a vivid description of what life was like and how the ancient city functioned.
