Tours from San Pedro Sula to the ruins?


We are only in San Pedro Sula for one day (en route to Belize), but we would really like to see the Copan Ruins. Is this an easy day trip by bus? Or are there any tour operators around that do such tours?

Thank you for your help!

Copan Ruins would be too far to do it in one day, it takes about 4 hours to get there in bus, you would need the whole day to maybe have a glance and 4 hours back, plus I don't think you would be able to catch a late bus.

If you hire a private driver that would be a different story.

Have fun

I agree. I've enjoyed using Hedman Alas buses in Honduras but the schedules wouldn't work for a day trip. http://www.hedmanalas.com

Even with a private driver you'd be spending twice as much time on the road as at the site. If you decide to use private transport, I've had great luck with a driver named Miguel Martel: 962-00372 (dial 011 504 first if calling from the US); I've read his email address is andresik04@hotmail.com but haven't used it. Hope that helps. Happy trails!
