Esquipulas - San Pedro Sula

From Esquipulas, head for Santa Rosa de Copan. At Santa Rosa de Copan, you can go on to San Pedro Sula via La Entrada. The first few hours will take you through breathtaking mountains; after passing Santa Rosa de Copan, follow the signs for La Entrada. An alternate route is to drive toward La Esperanza and then on to Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.

Learned Lessons

Don’t drive these roads at night. There are many animals along the road, and theft is common around La Entrada. Most of the roads are very good, and you can expect to maintain a comfortable speed. Nevertheless, remember that you are sharing the roadway with children, livestock, carts, and parked vehicles.

Special Directions

The route via La Entrada and San Pedro Sula is visually stimulating, and the roads are in great condition. If you want to visit the coast or the Bay Islands, this is the route to take.
