Copan Canopy Tour - at Lonely Planet forum

One of the most fun parts of Copan was doing the zipline. Its called the Canopy Tour de Los Sapos. Its about a mile walk from the south of town, or you can arrange a pickup from some of the tour operators in town. Its fairly pricey, I think it was $35 US per person, but it was definitely worth it. Its several kilometers of zipline over the canopy, and you can see the ruins from the zip line. The longest zipline was about a kilometer. - travelinggnome08

it is a true 'canopy tour'... ie: ziplines. These are cables suspended above the forest canopy that you are attached to... and then zip along! I spent 5 weeks in Central America... and this visit is a must. Beats the hell out of any zip lines I have ever seen in Costa Rica or Guatemala. 16 lines in total, and 2 of them are 1km long over the forest cover. You even have views of the Copan Ruins. Professionally run and well worth the 2 hours. Money well spent. - travelbug1970
