    Jardín de Mujeres Tejiendo Maya Chortí is a small business made up entirely of woman. It is situated in the small Chortí Maya village La Pintada which I visited on a horseback-riding tour. Here the cooperative of woman weave colourful scarves and sell them in their shop. I had not intended to buy anything but when I felt how soft they were I changed my mind. Now I have a scarf lying on my sofa and it is perfect to put around the shoulders if it is a little bit cold.
    My scarf, which is 152cm x 73cm, was 400 lempiras or 20 dollars (July 2009).

    Casa de Todo: Pick up a few souvenirs in one place

    Honduras is a terrible shopping destination. In most towns, there is simply nothing you can bring back to friends or relatives. In Copán, you will find a few dusty places with dispirited crafts. Casa de Todo was rather the best of these, and I was able to pick up a couple of trinkets.

    Just outside the ruins: Souvenirs of Copán

    by Pieter11 Written Dec 27, 2007

    Statues like this are for sale, but much smaller..

    Just outside the maingate of the Copán complex you will find a ridiculously cheap souvenir stall that is rn by some local people. At a carpet on the ground, they sell all kinds of souvenirs like wooden and stone statues, jewelry and local clothes. Different from what you would expect just outside a worldfamous attraction like Copán, the prices are very normal for Hondurese standards, which is very cheap.

    For a stone statue of bout 15 centimetres high, I had to pay about 2 dollars. An even bigger one of 20 centimetres high would cost 3 dollars. One thing: if you would like to try to bargain and make these prices even lower: waste of time. There is nothing they can/want to do about these prices, but to be honest: there is no need to anyway!
