There is plenty of stuff to do while in Copan. Here are some activities both in San Lucas and in town for you to enjoy while staying with us:
Come and visit our very own Mayan ruins on-site! Though still being studied by archaeologists and anthropologists, some have suggested that that the alignments and measurements of the Acropolis where planned from this ancient site.
Here's a wonderful ancient photo-gallery from back when Mr. Sylvanus Morley one of the foremost researchers visited Copan in the early 1920s. Mr. Morley became a close & dear friend of the Cueva family.
Gaia: Meditation and Yoga Pavilion. ::: A sacred space to re connect with our spirit.
Perfect space for morning and sunset to meditate and/or practice yoga.
The magic space allows us to connect with ourselves surrounded by luscious nature and feeling the healing and magic energy around and below us.
Enjoy guided tours on horseback to different places like La Pintada Village east of San Lucas, the a waterfall on the Copán River, and to Las Sepulturas Archaeological site.
The restaurant at San Lucas is a culinary destination all of its own. You can not only indulge your palate in our inspired regional cuisine prepared by our creative local Maya Chorti staff, but you can also join Us and learn to roll tortillas and wrap tamales.
The biological diversity found in the area surrounding Copan allows for excellent birding. Our pine and oak forests are home to many animals which include an updated (2012) bird- list shared from Victor Emmanuel Nature Tours & the Boston Audobon Society that has passed 400 species (and counting!). This makes Copan one of the more well-studied areas in the country.
