Highly Recommend Yat Balam as your base for exploring the Copan area. Heinz was very friendly and have us lots of pointers on what to check out around town. He also sorted us out with a great guide for the ruins and umbrellas for heading out in the rainy afternoons :) Perfect in every way and superb value for money....

Our travel edginess and weariness instantly dissipated upon entering the Yat B'alam Boutique hotel in Copan. My wife and I were received with warm smiles, inmediate recognition, and unparalleled hospitality. Our first impressions were indeed lasting impressions which set the tone for our 2 night stay. At least 3 members of the staff greeted us at the door and promptly...

This was my first time traveling to Honduras (alone!), I found this site through TripAdvisor and I could not ask for a better experience. I specifically picked this hotel not because of the price, but because another couple of travelers recommended it. Their positive acclaim and enthusiasm for this place convinced me to select it for my stay in Copan....

What a gem! We picked this boutique hotel based on the stellar reviews and it didn’t disappoint! The rooms are beautiful,so clean, spacious, high ceilings and modern w/local flare. I didn’t expect the rooms to be so nice! It is a central location in Copan Ruinas – walking distance to everything. The staff was awesome – all the people who...

What a beautiful hotel! We were greeted like family and treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. Rina and staff aim to please you in every way. This small hotel is elegantly beautiful, spotlessly clean and the rooms are arranged so you do have a lot of privacy. Our cute little room #4 faced the back and we got...

Like others said, book in advance, because this place only has 4 rooms and fills up quickly. It's easy to understand why. The owners, Sr. Hugo and his wife, are friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable, safe and clean. If I return to Copan Ruinas I will definitely stay there again.
