*beware of ‘La Casa de Tudos’, beside Hotel Los Gemelos, as it was a nice place but our dinner was taxed with 10% tips, 10%IVA and 15% alcohol tax, which we did not read in the fine print in the menu. Their internet password is 1a2b3c19fb.

*44km from Copan Ruina towards La Entrada on the left, or 20km from La Entrada towards Copan Ruina on the right, there is a nice fruit stall owner by the name of Yovany, pronounced as Jo-ba-ni. Honest, down to earth person, around 32years old with 3 children, selling cutted tropical fruits to the local tour buses that stopped at his stall. If you want to drink a cold sugarcane juice, eat some watermelon or make friend with a true local, this is the person. He didn’t want to accept our money when he gave us a pineapple, knowing that we are travellers.
