As a major tourist destination, Copán Ruinas  has its share of souvenir shops, many with Guatemalan and Salvadoran as well as Honduran crafts, including junco palm goods, leather, ceramics, jade and wood sculptures, and the ever-present T-shirts and coffee.
The high-end shops at the Yat B’alam mini-shopping complex have unique pieces of Lencan pottery and stylish jewelry, as well as other goodies such as hand-carved candle holders and candles made by a women’s cooperative.
Algo Maya also has a good selection of well-made items, including San Rafael eco-sustainable coffee (head to the tiny coffee shop across the street for a brewed cup) and glass plates and trays made by a cooperative near Tegucigalpa .
Across from the Hotel Marina Copán  is another mini-shopping center, Casa Villamil, housing classy shops selling cigars, jade, silver jewelry, and handicrafts, as well as a coffee shop and gourmet deli (6:30 a.m.–10 p.m. daily).
On the road leading south out of town (past Hotel Popol-Nah ) is Yax Pasah, selling stone carvings in Mayan designs. If you’re looking for something bigger, head out of town toward Ostuman, where the Lara family has a wide variety of stone carvings available for sale right along the highway—and will even carve a full-size stela for you if it’s what you want.
An association of Honduran artisans manages a shop called Pabellón Maya, one block south of the Copán Archaeological Park , and there is an artisan mercado next door, although both have a fairly uninspired selection of crafts.
