This hacienda is a real treat for travelers who are not looking to live in the center of touristy Copan. The hacienda is located on a hillside across the river from the town of Copan. From the hacienda grounds, guests can see the Copan ruins located below as well as the town of Copan . The staff is really polite and attentive. We ate two excellent breakfasts (which were included) and two tasty dinners at the hacienda. In the evening, they use numerous candles to illuminate the grounds. This is not the place where you will find bright lights and TVs. The staff speaks adequate English. We noticed they had a guard providing security for the hacienda at night, which gave us a sense of security.
