Copán





Copán, a pre-colombian city, is located in western Honduras and is considered to be the site of a major Maya kingdom of the Classic era (5th through 9th Centuries).
Its remarkable stelaes, along with sculptured decorations on buildings, are known as some of the very finest of ancient Mesoamerica.
When these photos were taken, only 20% of the city could be visited, as the rest was still buried and/or covered by the jungle.

On the last day we realized they have been not only guests but also roomates, as we saw them getting into the roof and walk on the bungallow ceiling...
The sandy terrain seems to suit the cashew trees well.
