Honduras: Pico Bonito – Copan Extension

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA Our optional 4-day/3-night extension will take us to the beautiful Hacienda San Lucas from where we will visit the Mayan ruins of Copan.

Copán Ruinas is a tranquil oasis of ancient culture and sublime nature nestled in the foothills of western Honduras, just 7 miles from the Guatemala border.

    Spending the night in a candlelit San Lucas room is a truly enchanting, unforgettable experience.

     

    San Lucas offers eight distinctive rooms with private bath, hot water, solar lighting, and ceiling fans. Hand-crafted from local cedar have firm, comfortable mattresses.
