Copan to Coban (Guatemala) by shuttle/public transport

Hey guys,

I will be visiting Copan on Easter Sunday and looking to travel to Coban in Guatemala the following day. I wasn't able to find any shuttles (as opposed to private vans) that would go directly between the two cities- are any of you able to recommend something?

I am also happy to break the journey up as long as it can be done in a single day (for example go to Rio Hondo/ Chiquimila first)- do you know where I can find the bus schedules?

Any pointers are v much welcome.

You might email or Facebook message ViaVia Cafe in Copan; they offer shuttles on some routes. I'm not sure how good they are at replying.

Good advice above. You could certainly make the trip in a day using long range buses from Copán to Guatemala City and from there to Coban. The share shuttles and Hedman Alas buses go in the afternoon, though - not sure how you'd make the first leg in the morning but there are probably other options. By local buses, also possible, but more complicated. Hopefully someone with more recent experience heading out fro Copán will chime in.
