Iguane Azul is a nice place to be. We stayed there for only two nichts but it was very nice. The shared bathroom is outside but that is not a problem at all. There are a lot of informations in the hostel so you know what to do in Copan - and it's not only to visit the Ruins of... More

Iguana Azul is warm and inviting. The hostel is beautiful and breezy with comfortable beds and hot showers. The wonderful staff and owners keep everything ship shape with a keen attention to detail. My friend and I stayed in Copán Ruinas for 5 days and fell in love with the town and the surrounding area. Iguana Azul is in a... More

We were struck with sickness in Copan Ruinas (no fault of this hostel) and Howard was extremely helpful organising a visit to a local doctor. There was a lot of information about local activities and the restaurant next door was delicious (although pretty expensive). The room was a bit small and tired and the shared bathrooms are outside. No good... More

I spent a week at Iguana Azul, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. This hostel doesn't really feel like one, but rather a nice B&B. Cute place with good indoor/outdoor seating areas, freshly cleaned facilities, and nice decor. $8 makes this a good value. The best part was the wealth of information provided- I was able to plan my whole week... More

What a great find! This lovely little hostel is a couple of streets back from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Copan so it is lovely and quiet. It is very clean and comfortable. My partner and I got a private room and although we usually go for a private bathroom we were really content with the shared... More

How do you describe an oasis within an oasis? La Iguana Azul. I'd go back just for the pancakes. Over the course of a month traveling through the region, this was the most comfortable and relaxing place at which I stayed. Wish I'd been able to stick around longer. The garden at the b&b next door is particularly lovely. Thoughtful... More

Great place! Friendly service, inexpensive, clean, and cozy place! We have stayed here twice now, and both times were very delighted. If you are looking for a simple place with basic necessities close to the center of the city, this is a wonderful option. We will return anytime we visit!
