How long drive from La Ceiba to Copan?

We are wondering how long of a drive to Copan from La Ceiba? How safe are the roads?

By non-stop bus (Hedman Alas) it is 2.75-3 hours from La Ceiba to San Pedro Sula and another 2.25-2.5 hours from there to Copan. In a private car you may be able to take an hour off of that as you wll be avoiding downtown San Pedro Sula.

The roads are in generally good condition but not well marked. Your biggest dangers are the other drivers on the roads. Do NOT drive at night (it starts getting dark fast around 5:30 PM).

You may consider checking out the Hedman Alas bus line site at http://www.hedmanalas.com/index.htm

Have fun!

From Palma Real in Playa Roma add another 30-40 minutes to get to La Ceiba.

Thanks Charlie : )

You have been a great help.

Maybe when we are in La Ceiba we will drop by.

You also own a restaurant too right?

Cheers,

The Iguana Bar & Restaurant is on the same property as the Coco Pando Resort Hotel. Great food and crowd on the beach!
