The Pre-Columbian city today known as Copán is a locale in extreme western Honduras, in the Copán Department, near to the Guatemalan border. It is the site of a major Maya kingdom of the Classic era (5th through 9th Centuries).

The kingdom, anciently named Xukpi (Corner-Bundle), flourished from the 5th century AD to the early 9th century, with antecedents going back to at least the 2nd century AD. Its name is an apparent reference to the fact that it was situated at the far southern and eastern end of Maya territory. The nearby modern village of Copán Ruinas itself may have anciently been known as Oxwitik.

After a short 20 min, walk in the giant riverbed of the Rio Cangrejal we begin our expedition into the jungle. The rainforest is breathtaking! Reaching the bottom of El Bejuco waterfall we enjoy our tropical picnic. On our way back we follow the Bejuco Creek and jump into a crystal clear pool and take a shower - and a therapeutic massage under the 30 ft. waterfall.

Paddling along the lagoons edge we can see and hear a lot of wildlife and see the local people fish from and sail their dugout canoes. Before long we enter the ‘Monkey Channel’, another narrow, overgrown channel full of mangroves. This is where most of the wildlife sightings occur. Lots of birds, bats and howler monkeys are often seen. From here we paddle to the Caribbean Sea where we get picturesque views of a serene beach and the nearby Cayos Cochinos. It is here where we have an enjoyable swim and beach picnic!

Diving: Roatan is the healthiest reef out of all the Bay Islands!

From what we have read, the Bay Islands are taking many precautions to protect the reef. Historically, the reefs around the Bay Islands have been healthy and pristine. In 1998 the Honduran government invited the nonprofit Coral Cay Conservation to study the reef and propose solutions to sustaining it, and initiatives have now been adapted by island communities and businesses to secure the reef's health. So far, the effort is slowly working. It remains crucial-especially with even more divers expected for everyone to help preserve the coral reef.
