The largest and best maintained ball court! Other ruin sites have smaller or incomplete ball courts, this one is the best! Beautiful!!

“Interesting Ball Court”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

It is interesting to see the ball courts at various sites in Central America, as they are not all alike and the there are variations in the stories from guides regarding how the games were played. it is difficult to imagine the playing of these games.

“copan Ruinas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Contained with the main site-a bit of housekeeping to get these into one thread would be good. The ball games though are pretty deadly-you lose, your the sacrifice scary stuff

“Dont miss the macaws”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The ball court is a great place to stop, drink some water, and use your imagination to see the Mayans gathered to watch a game. I loved hearing and seeing real macaws flying around the park while looking at the ancient sculptures of the same macaws that the Mayans liked. A link back to history.
