After Antigua we made our way to to Copan Ruinas in Honduras, just over the border from Guatemala. The town itself is a cute little town with nothing much to see, but what we were interested in were the ruins that lay close to here. Just a short walk from here are the ruins of a city where one of the most important Mayan civilizations used to live. This city (now in ruins) has sometimes been called the Paris of the Mayan world beacuse it is said that its culture was so developed and that they governed the surrounding regions for centuries.
