Introducing Santa Rosa de Copán
Santa Rosa de Copán is a cool mountain town with cobbled streets and some lovely, restored colonial buildings. It’s far less tranquil than Gracias, for example – but there's more going on here including some great cafes and restaurants. However, it doesn’t have any world-class sights like Copán Ruinas and, consequently, not as many tourists, which is part of its charm.
The annual festival day is August 30. The town is also renowned for its colorful Semana Santa celebrations.
