Mysteries of the Maya and Aztecs
Follow in the footsteps of the Aztecs, Zapotecs and Maya on an inspiring adventure through Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras from Mexico City to the Yucatan Peninsula
Despite being Central America’s second largest country, Honduras is less visited than its smaller neighbours. However, with several natural and ancient highlights in the form of colonial towns, mountainous jungle scenery and Caribbean beaches to offer to offer travellers, it is well worth exploring.
The country’s beautiful national parks are outstanding and provide rewarding wildlife viewing and bird-watching in swathes of protected rain and cloud forest. However, the jewel in the crown is the extraordinary archaeological ruins at Copan. While Europe was slumbering through the Dark Ages, the Mayans in Honduras were discovering the secrets of astronomy and Mayan architects were producing prodigious temples and ceremonial complexes. The most wondrous of their works have come to light at Copán, in its jungle valley setting.
