Departure Time

4:30 AM
Get an early start on the day with 5am pickup at your hotel in San Salvador, and relax on the journey to Honduras—this is the perfect time to catch a nap as you travel across the countryside.

Upon arrival at Copán, you’ll begin a guided tour of the archeological site. Copán is arranged around a central Acropolis with plazas, pyramids, ball courts, and monumental altars dedicated to ancient Maya gods. The 328-foot (100-mt.) wide Hieroglyphic Stairway Plaza is considered one of the greatest structures left by the Maya civilization, with a single inscription that contains a series of 1,800 glyphs. See images that tell stories from a dynasty of 16 rulers who brought Copán to power during the Classic Maya Period. Explore the elaborate stelae and altars that surround the plaza, then look beneath the surface at the Acropolis, where the largest archeological cut in the world exposes the remains of several successive plazas.

At the end of your Copán tour, make the return trip to San Salvador, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Copan Trip

We enjoyed the trip, Eduardo and the driver made our trip easy and fun. Eduardo is funny and entertain us all the way. In addition, Eduardo gave us a geographic l overview of the region and shows us the various landmarks on the way. Also, he coordinated with Tito, the guide in Copan. Tito gave us all the historical details and shows us all the ruins. It was an excellent trip, and I recommend Salvadorean Tours for this trip, the best price and service.

The tour was excellent to put it in one word. Our guide Eduardo of Salvadorean Tours was excellent. He gave us exciting facts and insights as we go along the way. He showed us different places and talked about the people, culture, even geology and of course introduced us to the local delicacies. He made sure that everything run smoothly including the border crossings. Our local guide at the Copan Ruins was very good and he answered all our questions. It was a really long drive but it was well worth it. I would highly recommend this tour and of course Eduardo our guide to anyone who wished to visit and explore the Copan Ruins of Honduras.

This tour was great, everything ran smoothly, including the time of crossing the borders. Thanks to my guide--Eduardo. He was punctual, professional, and very knowledgeable. He could make me feel better and much safer after I had been mugged in Guatemala. This tour is highly recommended.
