Copan

Take a trip into nearby Honduras to visit the Mayan site of Copan, with its unique intricately carved stelae, and explore these remarkable ruins in the company of resident archaeologist David Sedat.

Copan, considered by many to be one of the most spectacular cities of the ancient Mayans, flourished during the 7th century and was considered the cradle of its civilisation. The jungle that surrounds Copan is dense, filled with sounds of a variety of animals such as monkeys, colourful guacamayas (large parrots), tree sloths and peccaries.

David has embarked on an effort to reunify the ancient Maya realms of Copan, Honduras and Quirigua, Guatemala, separated by some 35 miles only. This project envisions a system of trekking trails and experimental botanical gardens by which many local communities throughout this hinterland can become involved in sustainable agriculture and tourism.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
