Route information for Copan Ruinas to Utila has been sent to us from the adventure traveller at atewasabi.com. A big thanks to Alex for this contribution!
!! MUST leave early (7am) to reach the island the same day, as the ferry runs only twice a day: 9am & 4pm. The slow ferry was broken with no estimated time to repair.
#1: 8:30 shuttle bus from Copan bus terminal to La Entrada – 70 Lempiras, hop off and hop on the new bus
#2: 10:36 chicken bus to San Pedro Sula – 100 Lempiras, arrive at 12:40 at a very big bus terminal. If you take the same bus, don’t waste time in the bus terminal and try to get the first bus out to Ceiba (sellers will tell you their bus goes first. Check!).
#3: 13:45 bus to Ceiba 115 Lempiras (another company would sell the ticket for 125 Lempiras). Arrive at 18:00 to Ceiba (there is Walmart and lots of fast foods, and a hostel right in front of the bus stop) – 10USD/night with AC.
#4 Taxi to the ferry (the next day)- 50 Lempiras/person (6 people)
