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!

An overnight in an unremarkable town called El Parasio, ready for the Nicaragua border in the morning. we're taking no **** this time!!!
... which also has a breeding program. They are now repopulating the Copán Valley and released already a dozen macaws, which are flying freely in the archaeological site.
We stayed at Via Via and had Belgian beers!!! Sadly only dark Leffe on the menu... Oh I miss Westmalle, La Chouffe, Duvel, etc
Next: a 6th country! Whhiiiieeeee! Belize here I come!

... from 465AD to 800AD. The copan ruins were recently discovered in the early 1800's. Archeologist are yet to uncover all the structures at this site but they have found there were 16 Kings over its Mayan history before they were forced to leave under the rule of King 17. They dont know all the names but the ones they do are pretty funky... Smoked Jaguar, Smoke Monkey, Leaf Jaguar, 18 Rabbits (which somehow has become my tour nicname from a few, well ...
