Life in Santa Rosa de Copán
Founded in the 1790's, Santa Rosa de Copán is located 94 km (58 miles) east of the border with Guatemala and El Salvador. Santa Rosa de Copán is the administrative, financial, and cultural center of western Honduras, and has become a progressive business center. With its distinct blend of old and new, it is the ideal place to live or visit. You find a relaxed, small-town atmosphere, forward-thinking city government, and excellent school system. The city's park, colonial historic center with its cobbled streets and scenic beauty represent real quality of life for its residents. In addition, being home to several high schools and three universities attracts a growing number of residents. When you buy real estate in this city, you don't just acquire a property: you also buy a stake in one of the most delightful areas of Honduras. That's why it makes sense to select a property for the long term: you'll be choosing to stick around!
