Copan Ruinas ........When I finally arrived in Copan Ruinas , after a very unusual transportation misadventure, it was a pleasant surprise. I found myself in a sleepy, little, colonial village with winding cobblestone streets. I instantly knew that my visit of less than 24 hours was going to be way too short.

It was nearly dark by the time I arrived in Copan Ruinas. I planned to find a hotel on the central square. It probably would have been a little expensive. But, as soon as I stepped off the bus, I was greeted by a young man who wanted to take me to his family run hotel. (The same thing happens in so many destinations around the world.) The room was only $12.00 and so very convenient. I walked four blocks away from the square to the edge of town. Yep, a small town! I tossed my luggage and headed to town for some food. I needed at least one meal during the day.

Nearly everything I wanted to see in Copan Ruinas was around the central plaza. Shops, souvenirs and something to eat. The actual Copan ruins were an easy fifteen minute walk out of town.
