TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Marina Copan
This is a gorgeous hotel--romantic nooks and crannies scattered on each floor provide beauty and seclusion. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and speaks excellent English; they will help you plan trips as well as call trusted cabs for you. Also, don't miss the great views from the rooftop balcony! Worth it in every way!

We crossed the river via a bouncy rope bridge and immediately noticed the steam rising up from the hot streams coming down the mountain (and the slightly sulphury smell!). We were shown to ...
... I did not hear that."
She bursted out laughing and said "Well that is shocking, they should have checked on you."
"It sure is. Wow."
That's how tired I was, I slept through an airport fire alarm, which must have been pretty loud.
I boarded the plane in Miami just fine with no questions about return tickets from American Airlines (ugh!). After some of the most insane turbulence of my life, ...
... at the hot-springs. As part of the package our local guide hired the chef from one of the local restaurants to cook for us. We had the equivalent of kabobs with chicken, beef and vegetables grilled on an open flame. There was black beans and fresh pico de gallo on the side as well as tortillas and garlic bread. It was so good and really filled you up. Full and ready for a nap we piled back into the box of the pickup for the 1.5 hour ...
