Entrance fee to Copan

Does anyone who has been there recently know what the entrance fee is to the ruins and to the museums? I also heard there are 2 fees, one for Central Americans and one for everyone else.

Looking around online I've seen $10, $15, $18, and $30 for the ruins themselves ( not including the guides) some of this information seems to be out of date.

It's $15 for the ruins, and an additional $15 if you want to go in the tunnels. The museum at the site is an extra $7.

There is a much lower rate for Hondurans, but I don't believe it applies to people from other Central American countries.

its definitely worth hiring a guide, i've used them a couple of times and they were always very informative.

Didn't hire guide as I had read a lovely book about the ruins. We had quite an adventure trying to find the ruins, as we crossed the wrong bridge on the river, so when we eventually got there, it was late so we just went into the museum, which was very informative and set us up for the ruins the next day.

We thought that some of the guides were really hurrying their clients around, possibly so they could get the next tour and obviously more money. Guides were between $30 and $40.

A mistake we made was not paying the extra for the tunnels at the entrance to the ruins, because you cannot pay at the entrance to the tunnels.

Copan is a lovely place. It is worth a visit to Macaw mountain and evidently the Hot springs were great although we didn't have time for those. L.
