Meetings, Congresses and Conventions are a big part of tourism. They have made certain destinations succeed and set themselves apart from the rest of the competition. As a region, Central America has been striving to become a player in this interesting and growing market. Panama leads when it comes to Central America Convention Facilities. They have the largest facilities and outstanding connections into their airport. Panama City’s Tocumen Airport is one of the best connected air hubs in Latin America. Only Mexico City and Cancun are better connected.


Did you know that the second largest Central America Convention Facilities are in Honduras? Yes, who would have thought so? I bet you thought I was going to say Costa Rica or Guatemala did you not? The Copant Convention Center in San Pedro Sula has the best facilities for Meetings, Congresses and Conventions in Honduras!

I had a chance to visit the facilities and was impressed by the size, quality and diversity of the facility. It is within the Copantl Hotel facilties in San Pedro Sula. The Copantl was the first World Class hotel to open in San Pedro Sula. It still competes as one of the top hotels in the city. It is the only independent hotel of its class in San Pedro Sula. It also boasts the largest Meetings and Conventions facilities in Honduras.

As a general rule, at least politically, Central America consists of 5 countries. These are Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Based on this conception, we can say outright that the largest Central America Convention Facilities are in Honduras.

The main ballroom has a capacity for up to 4800 persons. High ceilings, full air conditioning, and modern sound and audiovisual equipment are what you would expect in a World Class facility. There are many different smaller rooms, ideal for break out groups. Of course, catering for events is available and of the highest quality.

The location for these facilities is ideal. Not only is it next to the Copantl Hotel. It is within walking distance of many other first class hotels. The Real Intercontinental, the Holiday Inn Express, and the boutique Hotel La Cordillera are within a couple of blocks.  The ample parking, which holds over 500 cars. This is the best and largest Central America Convention Facilities. When deciding on a venue for your Meeting, Congress or Convention, you should consider Honduras as the ideal venue. Come and check it out!

Outstanding side trips available from San Pedro Sula include the Archaeological Mayan Ruins at Copan. The magnificent Bay Islands of Honduras and the magical nature and beaches in Atlantida are also great alternatives. Visit Copan Ruinas, the island of Roatan or the Garifuna Villages of Tela and La Ceiba. You will be hard pressed to find a venue with better facilities, value and diversity!
