Just for an hour or so while you are in Copan, sit and watch the people enjoy leisure time under the shade of the trees in the park. On weekends, there is great street food in the evenings.

Everything happens here it seems. People of all economic levels are here. On one side of the square there are outdoor food stands up each evening. People hang out and talk. Couples sit in the more hidden spots. It is really lovely.
