Copan, 00504

The basics

With 10 acres (4 hectares) of forests and gardens, Macaw Mountain offers the chance to see well-tended native plants in a natural environment. A nature trail and elevated walkways stretch through the park, where you’ll also find an information center, coffee roasting house, brilliant-colored birds, and a freshwater swimming hole. Since Macaw Mountain is a short distance away from the wonderful Mayan Ruins of Copan, it’s included as a stop on some tours of the site.

Things to know before you go

  • Bring a bathing suit, as there’s lovely swimming in the park’s tree-lined river.

  • With smooth, elevated wooden walkways, some areas of the reserve are wheelchair accessible.

How to get there

The reserve is located on V-331, a little over 1 mile (2 kilometers) north of the central square in Copan Ruinas. If you’re traveling on your own, it’s possible to catch a taxi or mototaxi (motorcycle taxi) to the park. Prices tend to be fixed, but it’s a good idea to agree on a rate before departure.

When to get there

Open every day of the year, the reserve has slightly shorter hours on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. The birds take a rest in the early afternoon. Mosquitoes appear in the humid forest later in the afternoon, so it’s worth arriving early or wearing protective clothing.

Things to do in Copan Ruinas

There’s plenty to do in this small jungle town, starting with the fascinating Mayan Ruins of Copan, an ancient site with a ball court, plazas, pyramids, and temples. Next, head to the Sculpture Museum, which holds many of the artifacts excavated from the archeological site. A little farther afield is Luna Jaguar Hot Spring, featuring soaking pools, a mud bath, and a naturally steamy sauna.
