Santa Rosa de Copan is often overlooked by tourists but it can provide you with a great Honduran experience. It is a historic downtown and is a lovely place to spend your weekend. There are so many things that you can take part in. Here are some of the things that you can do.
Take Tour of Cigar Factory
The city has a significant history when it comes to producing good quality tobacco. Even though tobacco production has lost its importance to coffee, it is still quite popular among the masses. I visited a cigar factory. Daily tours are organized from 10 am to 2 pm. Through this tour, I came to learn how cigar is produced. However, there are no cigars for sale here. Since I wanted to get some, I visited the factory outlet. Here, you will be able to choose from different forms and sizes.
Visit the Coffee Processing Plants
Western Honduras is largely dependent on coffee and one of the most famous hubs is Santa Rosa de Copan. There are several processing plants in here and all of them are tourist-friendly. These places also have their own coffee shop. Check if your hotel can arrange for the tour. If not, there are some local places where you will be able to avail the tours.
Take a Walk Around the City
The city has the ideal climate for a vacation. Also, it is safe which makes it perfect to take a walk around. In case you go out too far and cannot walk back, you can always take a cab. I took a guide with me to learn about the various parts of the city. The best place to start with your walk in the local market.
