Copan Ruinas, is actually the name of the town and the ruins themselves are Copan in Honduras. This town is truly one of the cutest I’d visited in a Central America.
We live in Antigua, Guatemala which is the last true colonial town in all of Latin America, however, Copan Ruinas is definitely in the ranks of colonialism and even though it’s much more modern in the sense that a lot of the ‘colonial’ style was added after the era, it’s simply adorable.
Take a look at all this information about traveling in El Salvador.
The majority of the streets are cobble-stoned with colorful houses and buildings. It’s so small that you can walk the entire space in a matter of 15 minutes from one end to the next.
Most of the so-called action, of course, occurs around the quite large central park. You can find tasty restaurants on practically every street, adorable boutique hotels that are tripadvisor winners of best hotels in the world (yes, I was very shocked to learn this) and a couple of souvenir shops.
We also checked out the central market which was tiny in size and sold lots of local ingredients with plenty of cowboy stores.

From the looks of the locals that live here, I’d say they were cowboys and farmers with a few business people thrown into the mix, and a sprinkling of expats.
I so recommend spending an afternoon just chilling out and enjoying the scene. And, what surprised us the most, Copan Ruinas has a full on night life to boot!
