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. The entire hacienda is beautiful and has tons of character and an authentic feel to it that is hard to find elsewhere. I'd highly recommend it... More

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,... More

I had the pleasure of staying here recently, and it's an incredible get-away! The food is nothing short of amazing and easily some of the best I've ever had. The rooms are nice, cozy and clean and there is a good wifi connection at the Hacienda for keeping in touch with people back home. I would highly recommend staying here... More

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. I will admit that initially I thought it was too good to be true but it isn't. Imagine... More

Unfortunately, my husband and I did not get the opportunity to stay at the Hacienda la Esperanza as our plans changed before we arrived and we had to return home. However, I wanted to take the opportunity to say that Rodger was extremely helpful and very responsive when we made our reservations, then changed our reservations, and ultimately had to... More

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. This was just one of the marvelous aspects of our stay at this beautiful house, set in tropical gardens, hosted by Rodger and Suyapa whose warmth and... More

A group I was traveling with stayed here after visiting the ruins at Copan. The setting was attractive, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the host, Roger, was gregarious with lots of info and stories told in a pleasant North Carolina accent. The breakfast was the best I've had in Honduras. Hacienda la Esperanza is operated to support a... More

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
