The back of the L$1!

Here’s where you get the shot showing what’s on the back of the $1 Lempira!

Go up the backside path and stand facing north on the east side. There’s your shot.

Best Mayan archeo site

Copan is known for the quality of its art, whether it be limestone carvings, pottery, buildings, incence burners, etc. Any one who visits this site will be amazed and overwhelmed.

Copan can not compete with Tikal or Palenque, when it comes to architecture. buildings are less impressive. still, located in a beautiful forest setting, the pyramid is a nice construction.

One of the Highlights of Copan Ruinas
Sep 2016 • Friends
We absolutely love the the Mayan Ruins at Copan, one of our favourite places in all of Central America. The Pyramid over Rosalila Temple is probably it's crowning glory but the whole complex is magnificently beautiful. The temples are spectacular and the grassy lawns and leafy tree copses make the whole place idyllic and peaceful.
Well worth hiring a guide. They are very inexpensive and vastly knowledgeable and we felt it added greatly to our visit.
Great to get so close to the temples, right up to and onto!
A truly wonderful place and an absolute must-do.

This is a part of the Copan ruins site. It is incredible to view. Make sure you enter the two tunnels as well, seriously impressive.

One of the many temples in the Ruinas Park, this one is accessible to climb and gives great views of the other ruins and the surrounding forests.

Don't miss out on the two tunnels...
Jan 2016 • Family
The magnitude of these constructions on constructions is mind boggling. To get it all into perspective make sure you enter the tunnel that leads to a corner of Rosalila. It is quite short, wide, well light and ventilated. The 'Jaguar' tunnel system is much longer but equally fascinating to explore with viewing on to hidden decorative facades and staircases and a bathing/plumbing system. You do not require your own torch to see either tunnels as is stated in some guidebooks.

At the extreme end of the Copán complex lies this nondescript pyramid that belies what lies beneath. The Rosalila Temple (not the Mayan name) has been covered over by successive pyramids, as was customary in Mayan culture for successive dynasties. The Temple was discovered by archaeologist who—gratefully—tunneled beneath the many pyramid layers and unearthed from inside archaeological treasures. Rosalila Temple is one of them. When open, I advise exploring the short tunnel to behold the Temple. Since this pyramid is adjacent to a steep hillside descending to the river that erodes ever closer, those with pediment impairments should take caution.

Tunels
Sep 2015 • Family
Tunel Rosalilia and Tunel de los Jaguares requires an additional entrance fee of $15. Pricey but quite worthwhile. The tunels can get quite hot. Rosalilia tunnel is short but you get to view the exposed temple through glass window. The other tunnel is quite long. Very very interesting to visit.
