Is it possible to go by bus from Chiquimula/ Rio Honda(Copan), by bus get off see the site and catch another bus north to Santa Elena / Flores?
Yes it s possible, mi dice that public transportation is line of slow , un mese u take a chicken bus, Erich I do non suggest( the drive too fast), best is to contaci private driverswith proper lucente and insieme...ask me of u want more details
Not sure. We were with a tour.
no but you could book a mini bus privatley
Sorry, I have no idea. We were shuttled by mini-van. The site is not very far from the main road - perhaps 4 km but it was a good three hours drive from Copan. The traffic was awful (just before Christmas) and there were certainly plenty of buses caught up in the mess but I have no idea as to pickup or drop off locations. The road did appear to stop just beyond the archeologogical site at a banana plantation so it is possible that there is not a bus service from the main road.
