“3rd stay at the Hacienda, and it keeps getting better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2010

As I grow more fond of Copan, I remain impressed and enthusiastic about the Hacienda. Great people, great atmosphere in a really stunning setting. All that and you are still contributing to a very worthy cause by staying here. The staff is great, the food better than ever. I will be staying here whenever I travel to Honduras.

The hacienda and the landscaping is absolutely beautiful. The accomadations are excellent. A great breakfast is served when you desire it and with a smile. It is close enough to town that you can easily walk if you want and far enough away to offer complete peace and quiet no matter what is going on in town. I would choose to stay here even if the the price was twice as much and it all went into the pocket of the richest man in town. However, this is not case at Hacienda la Eseranza. The hacienda and the small well equiped clinic in front of it are owned and operated by Paramedics for Children (a US charity) and all the proceeds from the Hacienda go to one of the many programs that the charioty runs to help the poorer indigenous people who live in the mountains surrounding Copan Ruins. This means that when I stay at the Hacienda, I am not only experiencing a very special time for me, I am also making life a little better for some of the local children in the area. Great place! Great concept!

All of the revenue from this delightful hacienda goes towards helping the people of Honduras. The inn is located behind the medical clinic. Paramedics for Children has been providing medical care and school supplies to the children in this area. Rodger is like Greg Mortensen in Three Cups of Tea.

I had a wonderful stay, the flowers on the grounds were extraordinary and the host was congenial and helpful. I came to do charity work and had time to explore the ruins and the town of Copan Ruinas, which was within walking distance. The room was spacious with a much needed ceiling fan.
It was wonderful having fresh fruit for breakfast as well, the help was friendly although I wish I paid more attention in Spanish class. We still managed to get our points across. The only thing that was missing in the room that I could have used was a reading lamp the owner assured me that would be taken care of soon.

I loved this place. It has all the amenities. Computer service is available so bring your laptop if you have one. The rooms are clean and quite charming. The grounds are filled with flowers and tropical fruit trees. The help is friendly and the owner is a great guy.

The Hacienda is within walking distance to Copan Ruinas but is situated just within the Mayan territory just over the Copan river. If you like mountain views and ancient ruins while staying in a B&B that makes you feel at home, well, you won't be disappointed.

I loved staying at Rodger's. The rooms are big and cool. The food is delicious with great coffee! and If you're lucky a music jam with Rodger. The hacienda is in a great location behind a little medical clinic that is part of this experience. It was such a great time that we have been twice and hopefully will be back again.

After several trips to Copan Ruinas, I am alway's excited to return to Hacienda La Esperanza. Esperanze is set within walking distance to all the attractions and sites of Copan Ruinas. However, just outside the town enough to see the stars and hear the birds in the morning. The B&B itself is clean and has all that culture that Honduras has to offer, along with an outstanding staff, wonderful food and the comfort of home. I would certainly recommend Hacienda La Esperanza to anyone. 2 thumbs up!!!!

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
