There were very few tourists the day we visited the Mayan ruins of Copan Ruinas, Honduras. I went with Kathy and Sharon, 2 other students from the Ixbalanque language school. It is very easy to spend several hours at the ruins.
We hired a guide for $25 for 2 hours. We seemed to be the only ones with a guide. It surprises me that people travel such a long distance to see something so incredible and try to do it without someone qualified to explain what you are seeing.
Having visited Copan Ruinas (2) two different times, I like the fact that it never seems to be crowded. Occasionally a bus of tourists will roll through Copan Ruinas, Honduras, but it never seems to put much pressure on the ruins. I consider it a very peaceful and tranquil site.
