    Rio Dulce – El Florido (border to Copan Honduras )

    1 direct bus a day leaves at 09:00 am from the Litegua bus stop/ticket office on the north side of the bridge in Rio Dulce, arriving at the border just before 16:00. Price 125Q. It does a 20 minute break for food underway. Also possibility to pee as they make a 5 min break in some litegua busstops. At the border you can exchange quetzals for lempira and take a collectivo to Copan Ruinas town for 25L.
