Overview

This tour will make you discover Mayan mysteries and secrets.

Day 1:
Starting with Joya de Ceren, also called the Pompeii of America, it is the only Maya village in the world and was preserved due to the hot ash from a nearby volcano and discovered by accident in 1977 but opened to the public almost 12 years after once the civil war stopped.
The San Andres, the most southern Maya city, is a ceremonial center part of the Joya de Ceren with its own museum. 

Overnight: Plaza Copan Hotel  or similar , with air conditioned and private w/c

Day 2:
The second day you will star with a visit of Copán Ruins, a World Heritage site.
Copán was occupied for more than two thousand years from the Early Preclassic period to the Postclassic. The city developed a distinctive sculptural style within the tradition of the lowland Maya. Perhaps to emphasize the Maya ethnicity of the city's rulers.

The Copán site is known for a series of portrait stelae, most of which were placed along processional ways in the central plaza of the city and the adjoining acropolis, a large complex of overlapping step-pyramids, plazas, and palaces. The site has a large court for playing the Mesoamerican ballgame. In two parallel buildings framing a carefully dimensioned rectangle lies the court.

The site is divided into various groups, with the Main Group and the Cemetery Group in the site core linked by a sacbe to the Sepulturas Group to the northeast.
Central Copán had a density of 1449 structures per square kilometer (3,750/sq mi), while in greater Copán as a whole this density fell to 143 per square kilometer (370/sq mi) over a surveyed area of 24.6 square kilometers (9.5 sq mi).
