Having visited several Mayan archaeological sites, including Tikal, Copan was absolutely worth the trek into Honduras.
Where Copan lacks in tall pyramid structures like its neighbor, Tikal, it easily makes up for with the intricate carvings, statues, stelae and beautiful geographical position in the valley.
Spend 4 hours here - hire a guide to show you the site, and be sure not to rush right into the main plaza - it's more fun to see it 'build up' as the guides will do.
