Had a wonderful day and was the only guest. Carlos showed me around the farm and told me lots of things about the coffee proces but also cacao. Horseriding was great as well as lunch and the hot springs. Recommended daytrip from Copan!

Once you are in Copan Ruinas, go to Via Via Restaurant. From there they will tell you when the bus goes. Via Via is in the centre of the little town and every one knows it.
