Guests Travel By Horse

After the flash flood our guests, Dale and Courtney, of Bend, Ore., safely make it down the mountain - and their luggage, too!

Copan River Floods

After several weeks, if not months of rain, it finally happened. The river went over its bank and into the valley. What is normally nothing more than a big flowing creek, the river destroyed acres of corn not to mention the road leading up to the hacienda. Dinners and rooms have been canceled for the next two days. As you can tell by the photos, the level of the water dropped quickly.

Our sign just after the main bridge surrounded by water.

Destroyed corn.

Creek-like just got really big.

Travel + Leisure Magazine Feature

This is Travel + Leisure magazine's May front cover. Rated as one of the best travel magazines in the U.S. with nearly 1 million readers. The article mentions five “must-sees” in Roatan, Utila, Copan and La Ceiba. Hacienda San Lucas is prominently featured in its one-page article and we are proud to be recommended as the place to visit and stay in Copán!

Estilo Magazine

These are some new layouts we are submitting to Estilo magazine. Estilo is a Honduran glossy magazine. This particular edition will be sold in El Salvador - hopefully to increase regional tourism.

Friends From Kansas

Dear Flavia,

Just a note to thank you for everything....we had such a wonderful experience at Hacienda San Lucas, and certainly look forward to seeing you again some day. I still have, in my memory, that wonderful view in the early morning, sitting on the hillside, drinking coffee, and looking down on the Copan uins. Thank Argi and your wonderful staff for us as well.

We have recommended your hotel to our friends who I believe are coming to visit Copan sometime this summer. They are wonderful friends, and a lot of fun as well.

Have attached a couple of pictures.

Fondly , Jane W.

Change In River

This is how Tropical Storm Agatha changed the Copan River. I believe the river rose nearly four feet but did not leave its bank. No major tragedies to report like in Guatemala and El Salvador. God bless.

Yoga Portal

One of the best places to come and feel great about yourself! Mayatan elementary and high school teachers have been coming for months! Thank you girls!
