Road to ruins

Copan, Honduras

Met new friends from Australia day before yesterday near Mariscos on Lago Izabal, then went for a swim and stayed at the lake one night at a place called Denny's Beach.

Yesterday, we rode buses to the border of Honduras, arriving at dusk then today we explored the Mayan ruins (from around 500 to 800 AD) that are the main tourist attraction of Copan. The town here is beautiful, caters to tourists but has a lot of charm. Judging from the look of the houses and streets, conditions in here in Honduras seem noticeably less poor than across the border in Guatemala, but this could be just around Copan.
