Stayed at Hacienda La Esperanza for 3 nights while visiting Copan Ruinas. The proceeds from this hotel support Clinica Esperanza, a facility dedicated to providing medical service to the Indigenous communities in the area. The line of patients waiting to see the doctor indicated to me that it is certainly a great cause. As for the Hacienda, the room are...

We had such an incredible stay at the Hacienda! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are extremely comfortable and clean. Rodger and Suyapa are the most gracious hosts. They will do everything they can to accommodate your every need. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!

The hacienda is beautiful and well maintained. It is tucked away from the road with a gated entrance and gorgeous scenery surrounding it. The people that run the hacienda are very kind, generous, and helpful. And the breakfast in the morning is the best I've had! The hacienda is in a great location too, just a short walk to the...

I recently spent 2 weeks staying at the Hacienda, and it was one of the best experiences I've ever had! The food is absolutely phenomenal, the rooms are clean, and the wifi is good.

I indulged in the culture here, got to eat home-cooked, all organic food for every meal, and picked up some Spanish along the way. It doesn't get any better than that! The Rum is amazing and I got to hear some great stories from Rodger and was given a town tour and a list of hot spots in town. Also,...

The physical environment is bliss and the family are among the nicest most helpful people I have ever stayed with. In addition to the charity work these people are involved in every day, they are the kindest and most hospitable people imaginable.

My daughter and I came to Copan Ruinas to see the Maya ruins. We stayed at Hacienda Esperanza in part because all of the money earned is donated to the charity, Clinica Esperanza.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hacienda La Esperanza (The hacienda of hope), the only bed and breakfast in all of Honduras, or perhaps the world, whose sole reason for existing is to help the indigenous poor of Honduras. Tourists who stay with us find that we are donating back 100% of all room revenues to support our medical clinic to treat the Mayan Chorti Indians of Central America, who are some of the poorest people on the planet. Indeed, Hacienda La Esperanza has a cause worth supporting. This Spanish Colonial Estate is a welcome relief for many travelers who come to Central America, and it is known for its incredible attention to detail. For example every component of the Hacienda had to be made by hand from authentic period materials From the hand crafted iron work, to the it lovely antique rustic furniture, you will feel as if transported back in time to the late part of 18th century Central America. As you look around you will discover that the Hacienda La Esperanza is filled with all sorts of period antiques, as well as original painting from some of the best artists in Honduras. Visitors are inspired by the peaceful setting of the Hacienda, and often remark about the way the way the world seems to take on a slower pace the moment they arrive. Abundant green vistas, lovely flowers, and numerous native birds, top off the picture perfect effect. With great attention to service, details, and a cause that helps others, you have the winning combination that defines the spirit of Hacienda La Esperanza. Ours is a mood of spirit, combined with a deep respect for our guests. The term "mi casa es su casa" is not a cliche at the Hacienda La Esperanza. We really mean it, and when you enter our gates you become a member of the family.. We care about your needs, and will do everything in our power to see that you are amazed and enchanted with everything about the Hacienda. The heart of the Hacienda is found in our Kitchen. Here we make the magic that you expect. Our breakfasts are famous, and our Honduras dishes and desserts will make your mouth water. All of our vegetables come either from our own organic gardens or from the local markets. All of our guests are free to enjoy our homemade bread at any time. Upon request we are always happy to brew you a cup of our special organic coffee that is grown in the mountains nearby. All of which is complimentary. If you seek, you will find that we are into wildlife and fauna. Here we value, and work in harmony with nature to bring an incredible experience to you. We are very popular with the birding set, and the Hacienda has been listed as a Central American hot spot with sighting of up to 36 different species of birds here on the estate grounds. We are located just outside of the town of Copan Ruinas. The walk into the town is 5 minutes and we offer complimentary rides to town as well as many of the sites. The advantage of this is the serene quietness and great sleep that our guests talk about. The entire Hacienda is enclosed private and gated, with secure parking for all of our guests. ... more   less
