Of course, the reason everyone comes to the town of Copán Ruinas is to go to the ruins of Copán. We walked the 2 km from our hotel first thing in the morning.
(Want to know more about what you're looking at here? NOVA has done two excellent documentaries that include Copan, and you can watch them online: Cracking the Mayan Code and Lost King of the Maya.)
It was nice to come home to a comfy hammock every afternoon at the Hotel Marjenny (room with hot shower and tv, plus use of internet and hammocks: $15/night).
It took us a while to find the entrance to the local market, which is camouflaged as a single vegetable stall. Once we made it inside, we found great pupusas and licuados awaiting us.
And then we were done. We were up at 5:30 AM to catch the first bus to San Pedro Sula, and after 2 plane rides and some weather-related delays, we caught the last Metro home. We got to bed late, but with the lack of roosters and motorscooters, it was a very good night's sleep.
