You could spend an interesting 1/2 hour examining (from a distance) the intricate, Maya, stone-cut carvings from the 7th century.

This was part of our basic tour I have her wish we could somehow see it closer either with binoculars, or some kind of suspension system that would allow you to walk up there and look at it closer

Be prepared to walk and see as much or as little as your physical condition can handle. Our guide Cesar was super and spoke English much more than we could speak spanish. Was well versed on history and culture. The walk through the ruins is extensive and can be very stenious. Look ahead and do not climb if your shaky. Steps are uneven and spaced wide apart. You may climb to the top of the ruins but becareful railing are few. The Stairway is under cover and is great to view. This is one of the easiest to walk to and back. No bathrooms in park. Quite a distance back if that is needed and their is no other services in park, carry water.

The hieroglyphic stairway is a must. One of the most incredible things I've ever seen in person before. You can look at pictures but nothing compares to seeing it in person.

I understand the reason for the canopy but the magnificence was obscured as a result. I wish I had a better idea of the history. Even the tour guide I had, I didn't think was very good with the explanation.

The stairway is one of the most amazing ruins in Copan. If you visit with a tour guide they will even teach you a bit of hieroglyphics! It is sad that the people who reconstructed the stairway were not Mayan and did not understand the written language. So the messages are jumbled. Nonetheless it is a must see that I highly recommend!

Copan ruins are stunning anyway, but the Hieroglyphics stairway is something else! Is unique in Mayan word. You could sit there admiring it for ages!
