La Ceiba to Copán

Hi there,

My husband and I are trying to avoid losing a couple hours by taking a bus from La Ceiba to Copán. Does anyone know of any private drivers that go on this route?

You might try Copan Connections.(copanconnections@gmail.com). They arrange transfers and have been around a while. Website is copanconnections.com

Another source would be MC Tours in Copan. To give you an idea on pricing, several years ago we took a private ride from San Pedro to Copan for $100; recently it seems that the same ride now goes for maybe $140. But, again, that is SPS to Copan and not from La Ceiba.

Correct .. SAP - Copan Ruinas runs $140 and its a 3 hr trip. La Ceiba - SAP is 3 1/2 hrs. Your best bang for the buck is the Hedman Alas bus www.hedmanalas.com, 1st class, comfy and secure. And it will get you from La Ceiba - Copan Ruinas in a jiffy!

I love Hedman also, and take that every time I can if the timing works out. It makes sense from a cost standpoint, unless you're a group of 4 or 5 maybe. And it's also great in terms of comfort, and probably security as well. Buying tickets over the web is a bit of a challenge, though, especially if your Spanish is limited. Several times I've had to telephone them to make a reservation, and that definitely eats into the price differential vs. a private car if you're calling from the U.S.
