Trip to Copan ruins from Nica: safety

Post New Topic

My family of 4 (incl. 2 boys 12 yrs old) are interested in doing a road trip to Copán Ruinas from the Chinandega area of Nica, likely via a route including the Guasaule border and via a route to avoid the capital. (CA3 to CA1 and Rn112) for no other reason than google maps suggesting it. We have an old Costa Rica registered Montero Sport. Knowing nothing about Honduras, does anyone have any suggestions for us on this route, or is there a better one)? Google maps suggests nearly 12 hrs. Sound about right? What do we need to know about safety? Are we nuts? Is there a place roughly in the middle that would be a nice place to stay ( and see?). We are gringos, and obviously look it with sun/salt bleached hair. My wife is fluent in Spanish. Thanks for any advice... If your advice is don’t do it, it’s not safe, please explain. Cheers!!

In fact, we are also considering circling northwestward to Antigua Guatemala and then possibly back via El Salvador... I will likely post to those forums as well, but just in case there are additional thoughts from your experience on a potential loop through those countries... we’d appreciate that info too! Cheers
