Nestled in the hills above the tranquil Copán Valley, Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old retreat overlooking the world-renowned Maya ruins of Copán. Converted into an eco-lodge in 2000 the hacienda is situated on 300 acres of tropical forest in Western Honduras. Lovingly restored using local materials, techniques and labour the Hacienda San Lucas' mission is to provide guests with a unique and unforgettable experience whilst helping the development of neighbouring communities.
Spending the night in a candlelit San Lucas room is a truly enchanting, unforgettable experience. Whether you're a first time visitor or one of the many returning guests, the tranquillity of San Lucas at night will wash over you like a lazy dream. The eight distinctive rooms at Hacienda San Lucas have private bathrooms, hot water, solar lighting, and ceiling fans, the beds are hand-crafted from local cedar and the mattresses are firm and comfortable.
Activities abound in this tranquil valley. Without leaving Hacienda San Lucas' grounds, you can hike the nature trails, visit the mysterious Los Sapos (The Toads) archaeological site, or go bird watching. The famous Maya archaeological ruins are but minutes away. Horseback riding tours, to and from the town of Copan, along the river, or up into the hills to tour villages or the San Rafael organic coffee finca. Or just relax. Lie in a hammock and read a book or paint the stunning nature and views.
At the end of the day, relax in a hammock with a refreshing cocktail as the sun sets over the mountains. Indulge your palate with the regional cuisine served at The Restaurant at Hacienda San Lucas with dishes like Tamal Presidencial. The restaurant at San Lucas is a culinary destination of its own. The candlelit meals are an experience to be savoured.
