The Marina Copan Convention Center opened its doors and hosted its first event earlier this month. This is a fantastic venue that opens many different possibilities for Copan. There is no doubt that this convention center, together with the new highway, is the beginning of a new and very bright future for Copan Ruinas!

I hate to admit it, but it has been 20 months since I was last in Copan Ruinas.

Wow, Cafe San Rafael keeps getting better and better!
