The town of Copan Ruinas, Honduras
Unless you have a very long way to go in Copan Ruinas, Honduras, it is easier just to walk everyplace rather than take one of the little tuk-tuk taxis.
One note of caution: there are lots of inconsistencies in the sidewalk construction and cobblestone streets, so it is very easy to lose your footing unless you pay close attention to where you are walking. A footnote here: on my last day of this trip, I fell down a flight of concrete steps on the sidewalk, severely spraining my ankle.
Every morning, I attended the Ixbalanque Spanish School. I would return to my family stay for lunch, usually take a nap, and then explore the town. There is always something interesting to see.
Occasionally you see some tourists that are visiting the ruins outside of town. For the most part it is just fun to do a little souvenir shopping or visit some of the public markets.
I will show some photos of the public markets of Copan Ruinas in my next blog.
