“Welcome to Hotel Hacienda San Lucas”

Hotel Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old property

Nestled in the hills above the tranquil Copan Valley, Hotel Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old family-owned retreat uniquely situated directly above the world-renowned Maya ruins of Copan. Hacienda San Lucas is a 100-year old property that was converted into an eco-lodge in 2000. Owned for many years by the Cueva family, the hacienda is situated on 300 acres of pristine tropical forest in Western Honduras, and overlooks the renowned Maya Ruins of Copan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hacienda was lovingly restored by hand to its original design using only local materials, techniques and labor.

Core Value of Hotel Hacienda San Lucas


The mission of Hotel Hacienda San Lucas is to provide our guests a unique and unforgettable  experience based on a spiritual commitment to share our family’s patrimony of an authentic rural hacienda that is helping the development of neighboring communities. This
responsibility includes the care and preservation of the nature and archaeology, as well as personal attention to each visitor, so that our guests feel like personal friends of our family.


The Copan valley is filled with archeological footprints of the ancient Maya. The Hotel Hacienda San Lucas property is home to the ruin Los Sapos (“the Toads”), which a recent Harvard University study deemed an important ceremonial site for the ancient Maya. To this day, the local folk tradition believes that Los Sapos holds special powers related to birthing and fertility (the toad is a fertility symbol in Maya tradition, and this region is home to 12 species of toads). There are also numerous unexcavated ruins throughout the property, which have been protected by the family from looters for many years.


Beautiful hotel

Beautiful hotel nestled in the mountains of Copan. Wonderful & friendly staff, great food and views like no other!!
Myra Kristy - Designation

A rustic place with all the comforts of a luxury hotel.

Adding the quality staff that attends and its administrators (Jose and Norma) that make an unforgettable experience. Delicious food, views and vegetation that must be experienced in person. Copan Ruinas an unforgettable experience for the quality of art that the Mayans handled at that time.
