I've been to Copan 7 times now, and stayed in several different places, however, I keep returning to Casa de Cafe. The rooms are clean, comfortable and charming, the gardens are beautiful, the breakfast is still my favourite in all of Copan (their homemade bread is to die for!), and the staff are some of the kindest and most accommodating people I have ever met. The owners, Howard and Angela always personally see to it that guests are comfortable and happy, and consistently to above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable.
It's a great home base for day excursions to the ruins (I usually walk there, takes about 20 minutes), to the bird park (take a tuk-tuk, it's a bit further), or to the hot springs (this can be arranged with hotel staff). You can walk anywhere in town from Casa de Cafe. However, the gardens, hammocks and delicious lemongrass tea (picked fresh from the garden) might convince you to stick around the hotel for some R and R all day. You can also schedule a massage right at the hotel (which I have done twice), and it is definitely worth it.
If you are looking for a relaxing oasis but are on a budget, this is definitely the place for you. I can't wait to go back.More
