On Tuesday morning you will be taken on a trip through the departments of El Progreso and Zacapa to reach the Honduran border, where you will go through a quick border crossing.
After this you will be taken to Copán, a fascinating Mayan archaeological site. You will have free time to explore the temples and monuments here. The artistry at Copán is some of the best in the whole Mayan world.
After breakfast on Wednesday morning, you will return to Guatemala and head to the Quiriguá archaeological site. Quiriguá has some of the best-preserved stelae in Guatemala. In the afternoon you will return to Guatemala City.
The Mayan site of Quiriguá has some of Guatemala’s best-preserved stelae. Set within the Caribbean Lowlands near Lake Izabal, Quiriguá is smaller but similar to the ruins of Copán, especially in regards to the architecture and carving style. It’s far less visited than Copán but nonetheless holds some fabulous Mayan structures.
Set just across the border in Honduras, the Mayan site of Copán features some of the best ruins in the Mayan world. The hieroglyphic carvings here are magnificent, as are the well-restored pyramids, palaces, and stelae. The artistry at Copán is exquisite and without parallel.
