“Living areas for Copan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

You can get a good idea of how these folks lived and worked in the plazas. These homes are the upper crust but the hoi polloi had less permanent construction similar facilities.

“We saw an Elegan Euphonia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The Sepulturas are very well kept and have a different feeling to them. Often visitors miss this wonderful site. Make sure you don't.

“Probably not worth the extra walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We walked here from the Copan site after walking there from town. We were the only tourists there. The man who checked our tickets at the site (same ticket from Copan gains you entry here) was very kind and happy to see visitors, but there wasn't terribly much to see after having seen the main site of Copan. Also, at one point we saw several men carrying machetes eyeing us from just outside the site. We generally felt pretty safe, but given we were the only ones there, we felt pretty isolated and a bit worried at that moment.

“Atmospheric "little sister" site to Copan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went after we had already visited the main site in the morning. Shady and with the information for our impromptu guide (free but we tipped), I thoroughly enjoyed this site and we had the place to ourselves - if you make it out to the main ruins, it is worth the extra km or so (we got a rickshaw) to Sepulturas
