The government of Honduras plans to build an aerodrome near Copán Archeological Park, but will ensure that it has no environmental impacts on the Amarillo River, which flows through the area.
Tourism Minister Nelly Jerez told Tierramérica that thanks to the formulation of an environmental impact plan and a favorable position on the part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the construction of the aerodrome “will soon become a reality.”
In 2004, UNESCO ruled against the building of an aerodrome on the Amarillo River, but according to Jerez, “its latest resolution is not unfavorable, it simply calls for measures to be taken and guarantees that there will be no environmental or archeological impacts.”
The Honduran government hopes to promote tourism in Copán, one of the main Maya culture sites in this Central American country.
