I am a former Middle School/High School Teacher who gave up the charmed life of an educator for a hotelier & tourism entrepreneur in Copan. I also dabbled for a time in travel writing; authoring a guidebook on Honduras & a weekly English language column on the Honduran travel sector. We own & manage a number of highly regarded properties in Copan, focusing on providing quality tourist lodging options. My partner in all these endevours is my lovely Honduran wife Angela. We are fully bilingual and eager to help make your visit a great one. We love to travel and have rambled with our backpacks throughout Mexico, Central & South America & most recently South East Asia.
