Driving from SPS Airport to Copan?

I was just wondering if anyone can advise about the experience of driving from San Pedro Sula airport to Copan Ruinas? We were thinking of taking Hedman Alas bus, but the timing doesn't work for our connecting flight to Roatan, so we might just drive to Copan.

How do we get there? What's the route like? Is it safe? Well-marked? Any thoughts/tips?

Thanks so much in advance for your help. Can't wait for this trip.

Driving to Copan during the day time is doable, but I prefer the Hedman Alas. The drive will take about 3 hours and the road is not always good everywhere, potholes etc. And if you are stuck behind a truck, it will take even longer because it is not easy to overtake.There are signs to Copan and it is not difficult to follow.
