Trip Itinerary


April 1st

Meet Janet´s group in SAP airport arriving on CM flight from Roatan, and transfer to Copan. We will do a short visit to the Guamilito market so you can experience a local market full of wonderful sights, sounds and smells! Among them is the line of women making tortillas by hand, from corn meal to toasting the tortillas on the grill, you can sit and watch the entire process from start to finish. This isn't a tourist attraction by any means. We will provide a light snack at the market so you can last till lunch. After this visit we continue our trip; our driver will take us on a paved highway through Western Honduras, following the Chamelecón River Valley. Throughout the trip you will see enchanting rural scenes, which will include forested mountains, livestock farms, tobacco plantations and in the higher elevations, coffee "fincas". Speaking of coffee fincas, we will enjoy lunch at one prior to visiting Copan. We will visit the Welchez Coffee Plantation where we will enjoy a traditional lunch up the mountain in the middle of the coffee plantation, this will be your introduction to mainland food. From here the trip to our hotel will be 30 minutes. Upon arrival to Copan, we check at the Hotel Marina (or similar). The remainder of the night is yours to enjoy. Remember you will be spending the night in one of the most charming towns in Honduras, where you will be able to stroll the cobblestone streets, explore the many restaurants and cafes, hunt for souvenir bargains and mingle with the friendly people of the town.

Early breakfast at the hotel, prior to our visit to the main archeological park, we will visit the central square. Remember this is Palm Sunday, so there are many cultural experiences you cannot miss since they are only available during Easter week. Then we will head directly to Copan archeological park where our bilingual guide will give you a walking tour of the main archaeological sites. This includes the acropolis, the ball court, the hieroglyphic stairway and the great plaza of the stelas; as well as of the majestic Museum of Mayan Sculpture, acclaimed by experts as unique in the Mayan World. A masterpiece within the museum is the exact size replica of the famed Rosa Lila Temple, discovered in 1989 perfectly preserved underground, return to hotel in the afternoon.
