TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Marina Copan
This is a gorgeous hotel--romantic nooks and crannies scattered on each floor provide beauty and seclusion. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and speaks excellent English; they will help you plan trips as well as call trusted cabs for you. Also, don't miss the great views from the rooftop balcony! Worth it in every way!

Once through, Copan was just 10 more minutes away. We checked into our hotel and then headed out to the town centre to get money ...

We cycled directly south through the rest of the flat, dry ranching country of El Peten, with the main attraction on our last stretch being the wildlife—on the road we encountered a huge hairy spider, a bright green, foot-long lizard with long legs, and howler monkeys honking and roaring above us. We kept in mind the warning we had seen posted in Tikal that the howlers like to defecate on the heads of people below, and stayed across ...
... ones that had just been rescued because they pluck their own feathers out when they are stressed - not a pretty sight. But it was nice to know that some of the wild birds came to visit the caged ones. A good show of solidarity. The best bit, however, was the interaction area where we got to play with the birds, so to speak. These were birds that had cages but were free to fly around all day (and leave if they ...
