The town of Copan Ruinas, Honduras (Part 1)
One of the advantages of studying Spanish at the Ixbalanque language school is getting to live in Copan Ruinas while you are going to school. I really enjoy this little town that is nestled in the hills of the Copan Valley in northern Honduras. It is one of my favorite places in the world.
As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs, the taxi system here is the “Tuk-Tuk” which is a motorized golf cart. They are all over the town.
Many of the town’s activities are centered around the town square which was just a two block walk from the family with whom I was staying. There is also a very interesting museum on the square. I will have some photos of that in a subsequent blog.
Around the outside of the square are a couple of shops, a market, a few banks, and a coffee shop where I liked to hang in the a.m. and sip Honduran coffee. Sorry, I don’t have any photos of the retail surrounding the square, you will just have to visualize it—just don’t visualize Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. This town is for the people who want a totally different experience!
In my next blog, I will post some photos of the streets of Copan Ruinas, Honduras. You really don’t want to miss those, so don’t wander off and start reading some other traveler’s blogs!
