A long day.... We left Rio Dulce in the morning and drove to the Honduran border. Before crossing into Honduras we visited Quirigua, known for having some of the tallest statues in the Mayan world. Border crossing formalities took longer than expected and we didn't get to Copan until late afternoon. It's a pretty town, obviously aimed at enticing tourists to the neighbouring Copal ruins. In the evening a group of us took a truck an hour into the mountains to the natural springs. Trying to find a balance between scalding hot water and freezing cold water was tricky but the BBQ dinner afterwards was worth the visit.
