Before heading on a trip to a new location, I pride myself on doing a ton of research to know all that there is to do so that we get the MOST of our experience! And when traveling with kids, this makes it a challenge since they like to do other things than just chill out on a hammock or drink a beer overlooking the town. They get restless within minutes and I need to have a good idea of what to do to keep them stimulated.
Aside from the typical stuff for us to do like horseback riding and canopy tours, stuff that we have done to the hilt and personally, even my seven year old is over it for the time being. This is what I discovered to do.

Attractions in Honduras – 4 Cool things to do with your family in Copan, Honduras
1. Copan Ruins – this is a no brainer, since there is little reason to come to this place. My recommendation definitely get the full package of ruins entrance, tunnels and museum.
2. Macaw Mountain – An excellent half day trip to the Macaw rescue center. It has a lot more than just Macaws, such as parrots, owls, toucans and more. Plus, they have an interactive area where you can sit a gorgeous red or blue macaw on your arm.
3. Copan Ruinas Town – a tiny, colorful town that can be walked from one end to the other in less than 15 minutes. The only reason your kids can get tired is because of the insane heat! But you can always relax for a while in the Central Park.
4. Los Sapos Ruins – this isn’t a full-on ruin, but more of a cool and easy hiking trail. The ruin is located on the property of Hacienda Lucas, which just happened to be our hotel. But if you’re not staying here, just the visit to this hotel and ruin is awesome!
