from San Pedro Sula to Copan

Hi, we are arriving in SPS the evening (@7PM) and would like to head off straight away to Copan in order not to loose a day. The problem is that, from what I see on the web, the last Hednam Alas leaves SPS around 3 PM. Does anyone know if there are any other options to get from SPS (preverably even from the airport) to Copan after 6 PM? Thanks

I can't find any evidence that there is any bus transport that time of the evening. You may be able to hire a private taxi for the trip. If you can find one who take you it will probably cost you double what a hotel and bus the next morning will cost. Its not a particularly safe trip at night.

You may consider the Microtel (http://hotelhonduras.com/) or Gran Sula (http://www.granhotelsula-sanpedrosula.com/) for the night and start early and fresh by bus in the morning. If you are on a budget the Tamarindo (http://www.granhotelsula-sanpedrosula.com/) has some inexpensive private rooms, nice owners and is located in a safe neighborhood.

Enjoy Honduras!

I live in San Pedro and I would NOT travel the road road to Copan after dark. If you have to ask why then you don't have very much Central American traveling experience. You need to just forget about it and go to Copan the next morning. In SPS try Hotel Copantl (approx. $70.00).
