Hotel Marina Copán has been regarded as one of the finest hotels in Copán and the surrounding area since it first opened in 1948. The original hotel was built in a style evoking the republican and colonial eras of the town’s history.

Expansions and renovations were completed in 1990, 1998, and 2004. The Convention Center, the largest and most elegant facility in the area for elite celebrations and corporate events, just opened its doors in 2019.


“Being the first hotel in Copan and still owned by the same family for three generations has allowed us to establish a foundation of professionalism, dedication, and excellence in all that we do. We are now widely recognized as one of the best places to stay in all of Central America and the Maya world, and we work hard to live up to that reputation by giving our guests a lot more than a comfortable place to sleep.”

The Story

After arriving in Copan in the first half of the 20th century, renowned Mayanist Sylvanus Griswold Morley found an incredible treasure in the friendship and warm welcome of Marinita Villamil and her family. Their home soon became a favorite stop for all of the researchers interested in learning more about the ancient Mayan civilization.
