Parque Eco-Arqueológico Copalita
Parque Eco-Arqueológico Copalita information
This pre-Hispanic site 600m north of La Bocana village was opened to visitors in 2010 and is still being excavated. Notable archaeological features revealed so far are limited to a ball court and two fairly modest temples, but an interesting museum, well-made pathways through semitropical forest and a spectacular lookout over the mouth of the Río Copalita add a lot to the appeal.
The site was occupied by different groups between about 500 BC and AD 500, and again from AD 1000 to the 16th century. Visits take one to 1½ hours.
