Copan ruins, Honduras

Venture into Honduras for this remarkable Mayan ruin

Copan in Honduras is one of Mesoamerica's most remarkable Mayan ruins, situated at the eastern edge of the empire.

Copán, though not as expansive as Tikal or Chichén Itzá, boasts unparalleled craftsmanship preserved amidst the lush embrace of jungle vegetation. Marvel at intricate carvings adorning 21 stone columns, known as stelae, scattered among temples and ball courts.

The renowned hieroglyphic stairway, comprising 1,250 glyph-adorned blocks, stands as the longest inscribed text in the New World. Despite its grandeur in the 8th century, Copán succumbed to decline, yet its enduring legacy offers a captivating glimpse into the ancient Maya civilization.
