How to describe Hacienda San Lucas? It is so perfect!
The hacienda main building is 100 years old - we arrived a night - a 15 minute bumpy ride out of town - where are we going? - and then - a candel lit hacienda with the warmest welcome - truly beautiful.
The main building is where you will dine - in the cosy cucina by the fire if cool or outside with beautiful vistas or candel light. Flavia or Argi will be your host - full of information of the surrounding area, ruins and history. The staff speak a little English and were so helpful with our limited Spanish. The meals are fantastic - we ate all dinners there - why go anywhere else.
The rooms are built to resemble the old architecture - yes they are cande lit at night but you have lights in the bathroom and bedside and plugs for charging - lovely. They are large and linens in both the bedroom and bathroom are excellent.
We walked back and forth to town along the river several times - about a 40 minute walk - or they will drive you in and pick you up or arrange a tuktuk.
This is the only place to stay in Copan!
