Hacienda San Lucas

Copan Mayan Ruins
Hotel - Restaurante Hacienda San Lucas, Copán Ruinas 00000, Honduras

Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old property that was converted into an eco-lodge in 2000. Owned for many years by the Cueva family, the hacienda is situated on 300 acres of pristine tropical forest in Western Honduras, and overlooks the renowned Maya Ruins of Copan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hacienda was lovingly restored by hand to its original design using only local materials, techniques and labor.

In contrast to other Central American countries, Honduras is just beginning to perceive sustainable ecotourism as a viable and substantial benefit to the national economy. Hacienda San Lucas has played a major role in this burgeoning awareness.

San Lucas was created and is successfully managed without external incentives or support. In fact, from its inception, San Lucas was treated by many Hondurans with substantial skepticism or indifference. Thus, the pioneering success of Hacienda San Lucas sends a powerful signal to the region that sustainable ecotourism works. San Lucas now serves as a role model for positive change.


There’s always something fun, exciting, or relaxing to do at Hacienda San Lucas, like 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. Hike the nature trails to spectacular views of the Copan Valley, the ruins, and the town of Copan. Enjoy a soothing soak in the hot springs at the Lunar Jaguar Spa or visit the hacienda’s on-site ruin Los Sapos, the mysterious Mayan ceremonial site whose true purpose still confounds archeologists. Enjoy fantastic birdwatching (with nearly 390 species identified to date), and the exotic butterflies, in the exuberant, lush tropical forest or visit the Macaw Mountain Bird Park & Nature Reserve, just a 15 minute drive from the hacienda. Or… just relax. Lie in a hammock and read a book, paint the stunning nature and views, play with our dogs, learn Spanish or simply meditate.
