Smaller and less impressive than the actual Ruins, it gives a good idea of the living spaces of the Mayas as opposed to the ceremonial temples and ball game areas. Worth including in the visit!

This spot is underdeveloped and not really worth the time visiting. All you can see are half-buried structures. There's much work being done out here, but it's not interesting enough for my taste.

Included in the fee for the Ruins, drive about half a mile out of the ruins, I missed the entrance twice since the sign is at the level of the highway floor. You will need about 2 hrs.

This, off the beaten path location, is the perfect place to feel like an explorer. It is set apart from the main ruins and is not as known to tourists. That said, it is absolutely worth it. You get to walk through trails through the jungle and near the Copan river in order to come across several groups of residential... More

Not far from the main ruinas in Copan, the Sepulturas are worth your time to get a better understanding of the ruinas layout and uses of the different areas and design.

This place is nice but if you are visiting after the company ruins like most people it will be underwhelming. That being said the place is quiet and could be a good place for a picnic lunch or early morning bird watching. Take a taxi(took-tuck) instead of walking as the pathway there is mostly unshaded.

I believe this is the only example found to date showing how the regular middle class Mayans lived. This is worth the effort to see. This site is about a half mile down the street from the ruins. Entrance to this site is included with the purchase of a ticket to the main ruins of Copan (so don't lose the... More

Other than the tomb or two, there was not that much to see in my opinion. Again, you have to use a lot of imagination.

I wish they had someone to give out tours and explain the story behind it! Maybe because it is fairly small, it's not such a great deal to have tour guides.

It was hard for us to focus on the ruins here for watching the many species of birds and enjoying the peace and quiet of the site. Only a 20 min walk from the main ruin site, this little visited area is fascinating both from the cultural aspects and as a nature preserve. We visited two times after visits to... More
