Travel info

Getting to Copán is easy…

Ixbalanque Spanish School is just 3 hours by air-conditioned bus from San Pedro Sula, or 4 hours from Guatemala City. Both airports are serviced by frequent international flights. We recommend travelling through San Pedro Sula for its proximity, and lack of a border crossing.

Because of the convenient location of Copan the are multiple ways of getting here

Our students travel to Copan from San Pedro Sula on Casasola Express, which offers the most experienced and affordable transport in the region. Their comfortable buses depart San Pedro from the Transportes Norteños Terminal daily at 8:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m. Easy connections are available in San Pedro to Tegucigalpa, Tela or La Ceiba.

There are other bus companies in town that run regular, comfortable bus service between Copán and Guatemala City/Antigua. When you arrive in Copán, the bus stations are located only minutes away from the school. If you let us know in advance what bus you’re arriving on, we’ll will be happy to meet you, and take you directly to the family you’ll be living with.
