Copan Ruinas

we stayed in Hotel Los Gemelos, from Parque central down the road to the ruins, directly at the corner. Price was 120 Lempiras min, 150 for a double. Safe parking incl. guard dog.
alternative is camping on the gas station 300 m from the ruins.

near Gracias

we stayed on Balneario Alejandra 10 min north of Grancias opposite the Gas station. room incl. private bathroom is 150 for 3 persons. u can also camp there or hang a hammock. great food as well. the pool is fun as well and the family who runs it is great.

Lago de Jojoa

D & D Brewery, is in 2003/2004 Central America on a Shoestring LP. it is near Los Naranjos, turn left (coming from South) behind the bridge over the canal in Pena Blanca, follow the road till u come over another bridge, then there is a sign on the right leading into a little dirt road. another 500meters and u are there)
camping is 40 Lempiras pP in a great garden, safe parking with guard dogs. and it is a brewery!

*there will be some guys coming to help you to find a place to stay for commission. they will offer something like 100Lemipira for private room with aircon, TV, WIFI, offer sounds good but too good to be true. No harm following them?
*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.
