  • The main square of Copan Ruinas is surrounded by cafes, restaurants, the colonial cathedral. Quite striking much of the boys wearing white hats which I had not seen elsewhere, seems to be characteristic of this area of the country. They set up tables with handicrafts and it is a good opportunity to buy them.

  • A Painting Square with beautiful gardens, sculptures alluding to Mayan culture and even a wall with a Mayan Arch. The Church and some restaurants surround you, also the Museum is located there. Handicraft stalls are set up on the side of the square in the mornings, good place to explore. Enjoy the Painting Central Square of Copán because: THE LIFE... it's a TRAVEL!
