This beautiful hotel has been at the heart of the Copan Experience since 1945. Overlooking the Central Plaza in the charming town of Copán Ruinas, Honduras, the Hotel Marina Copan was named in honor of Doña Marina Welchez, and built on the site of her family home nearly 60 years ago. A Copan tradition, this was Copan’s original hotel, home to generations of Maya investigators and enthusiasts. Today, a modern hotel that jealously guards the town’s colonial architectural heritage, the Hotel Marina Copan is the most comfortable and convenient base for exploring the fascinating Maya World, and the diverse natural landscape that the ancient ones left behind.
Laid out around cozy but spacious passages and well-groomed gardens and fountains, the accommodations you can find in the Hotel Marina Copan are an evocative reminiscent of an old colonial house. All 49 charmingly appointed rooms and suites are non-smoking zones and feature natural wood ceilings, hand-carved furniture and warm hues, all of it contributing to a peaceful ambiance where our friendly staff will make sure your stay remains a memorable one.
DINNING AT HOTEL MARINA COPAN
Glifos Restaurant: Despite its discreet location inside Hotel Marina Copan and its cozy, low-key ambiance, Glifos Restaurant is all about exuberance and personality. Glifos has been Copan’s best known eatery for more than two decades, with the promise of a fine-dining experience which has been only perfected through time. This Copan original, opened in 1991, remains a signature eating locale, the epitome of not just its Central American – regional style but also its own character.
Take, for example, the Pollo al Loroco, as described on the menu: ‘Aromatic seasonal Loroco flower and butter contribute to enhance the tenderness and flavor of boneless chicken breasts, embellished with crunchy steamed veggies and rice with local herbs’.
Café Welchez: Just outside Hotel Marina Copan at the corner facing the Central Plaza you will find Cafe Welchez, a nice place to spend some time with friends and enjoy the casual meal and some natural fruit smoothie or perhaps a delicious sweet dessert with a beautifully decorated cappuccino.
