Santa Rosa de Copán Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 55 photos
Santa Rosa de Copán is the largest town in Western Honduras, with 42,000 inhabitants. It has been a cigar manufacturing center since the 18th Century. It is a very pleasant town, not as "backward" as Gracias, Lempira... but not as close to the Lenca villages and to the Celaque Mountain either.
Santa Rosa has an attractive central square, and pleasant spots to sit down and relax. You can find a pleasant café for a pastry and coffee, for instance, which would be unthinkable in Gracias.
The historical part of the town is up on a hillock, with what must be well enforced architectural renovation guidelines. The more modern part of the town is down from the hill (a short walk), and that is where you will find the bus station and the cigar factory.
