Copan

History:

"Copán began as a small agricultural settlement about 1000 bce. It became an important Maya city during the Classic Period (c. 250–900 ce), and at its peak early in the 9th century it may have been home to as many as 20,000 people. A dynasty of at least 16 kings ruled Copán from about 426 to 822, by which latter date the city had entered a serious decline. The Maya had completely abandoned the site by about 1200."

​Start Preparing for Your Trip

   Vaccinations: Routine vaccinations, Hepatitis A, Typhoid

Visas: No visa is required for U.S. citizens for a stay up to 90 days

What to Pack: "Pack lightweight cotton, linen or silk blend clothing to deal with the heat. Leave the polyesters and other synthetic fabrics at home because they do not breathe well. Choose light-colored clothing to further help with the heat. Pack a mixture of shorts, capri pants and short-sleeved shirts. If you are traveling with another person, pack half of each person`s clothing in each suitcase. If any luggage is lost on the way, you will each have clothing for the trip."
