    Para llegar a Copan desde Guatemala, el punto de partida es Chiquimula a donde se puede llegar con transporte publico por carretera directo desde Guatemala City y desde Puerto Barrios. Se encuentre aproximadamente a la misma distancia de cualquiera de las dos ciudades, 3 horas y media. En Chiquimula se toma un autobús o una camioneta, para un trayecto de 1 hora y media por, ya, buena carretera. La camioneta es mas cara pero más rápida y cómoda. Los tramites en la frontera se aceleran si solo va a Copan, se tienen que pagar pequeñas tasas en los dos controles. Ya en Honduras ya solo quedan 30 minutos en una picup. Salen muy a menudo, son caras, se aprovechan de que somos viajeros, pero no hay otra cosa.

    Roads

    Most of secondary roads in Honduras are usually in not very good conditions, especially after the disaster of hurricane Mitch in 1998. So it is mandatory to get around with a 4x4 car. Well... sometimes even with a jeep you can have a flat tire !! :(

    I perfer to go to the mainland of Honduras by TACA Airlines
    I plan to go on my first trip to the Bay Island and will be sailing to that destination.
    Walking. You must remember you do not have the right of way if you are crossing a street.

    The cheapest way is Taca Airlines, however, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone! American Airlines has a direct flight to San Pedro Sula and Roatan Island from LAX and Houston. It's worth the few extra bucks!
    The buses are cheap, but often crowded. Taxis don't charge much more than the buses and they can be found everywhere. Small planes are the best way to hop from island to island. And the water taxis are the best way to get around while on the islands.

    Air and bus. We used buses at the time, the best being Tica Bus, which was -- and possibly still is -- a company that ran/runs Greyhound-style buses from Guatemala City to Panama City.

    We used SAHSA, the national airline, to fly between Tegucigalpa and San Andres Island. At the time they were using Lockheed Electras, though those have no doubt been replaced by jets long ago. I do recall that the landing was so smooth on the island that my wife didn't even realize she was back on the ground.
    Buses again. There are also a few domestic air routes as well.

    Our mode of transportation was usually in the bed of a pickup truck, but we saw several of these carts on the road.

    As I came from Guatemala, the best way to get there (cheapest) is by bus or driving.
    Hedman Alas, for a couple of dollars more you can travel in one of the best transportation in Honduras.

    Go to the Bay Islands, in the Carribean Sea, some of the most beautiful waters, and there is very inexpensive scuba diving. (I think it costs less than $200US to acquire your diving certificate)
