Honduras was our next stop in Central America. Judging by the big gun our driver kept under his seat and the even bigger gun on the hotel reception desk the first place we stayed at was not the safest town. Needless to stay we arrived late, ate dinner and went to bed without out taking many pictures!
Copan however, is a well-known tourist destination made famous by the Mayan ruins.. Even though we felt a lot safer there, the tour we were on really only allowed a half day to explore so L and S and I opted to stay an extra day and catch up with the group a day later. We made the most of our time with a very leisurely look around the ruins and a visit to the Macaw Mountain bird park which was a refuge for hurt or stressed birds.
Copan, the town
This lovely wee gaucho showed us around, we didn’t really have a clue what he was saying but we enjoyed his company!
