Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins of Copan from San Pedro Sula

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This 14-hour day trip starts with an early morning pickup at your San Pedro Sula hotel between 5:00am and 5:30am. Your actual trip begins at 6am with a drive over to the Mayan Ruins of Copan. The car ride in your air-conditioned minivan takes about four hours, so sit back and relax.

    Once you reach the ruins, you can explore the area. Walk around, and admire the intricate carvings on the columns or the bricks of the buildings. There’s also a museum you can choose to go through as well.

    Afterward, it’s time to get some food. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant with local cuisine (own expense). When you’re done eating, your group heads over to the Macaw Mountain Bird Park to catch a glimpse of the country’s national bird. The park also takes care of more than 100 birds who were mistreated as pets, so there are many other species to see while you're there.

    Next, sip on an afternoon cup of coffee, which is actually known as one of Honduras’ best coffees. Then, jump back into your minivan for the long ride back to your hotel in San Pedro Sula.
