We were quite impressed with the rustic charm and amazing cuisine. The staff was excellent and the owner, Flauvia, was a delight to spend an evening with. They made arrangements for trips into Copan to visit the ruins, enjoy the town, and birdwatching up in the mountains. The drive there is 2 1/2 hours from San Perdro Sula on a winding road and a bumpy ride up to the hacienda. But the positive experience is on the the top of my travel list.
P.S. We had absolutely no fear, regardless of what the newspapers reported and the grounds have security at night.
