Take a tour of Copán Ruins in Honduras – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. Copán, in the rainforests of Central America, is a place that begs the mind to lose itself in legend, imagination, and fantasy. More elusive than Athens or Cairo, Copán begets secrets of an ancient world, a mysterious civilization. A product of the Mayans, the ruins today stand stoically silent, letting visitors only guess at their once loud voices. The once thriving civilization Now only echoes of collapse. A place of alluring ambiguity, deep in the heart of the Central American rainforests.
