      Day trip to Honduras
      Kevin_P, Feb 2023
      Great day trip to Copan ruins. Ruben, our guide, was friendly, but we were disappointed he was not of assistance at the boarder crossing. We were supposed to stamp out of Guatemala and go to the next window, Honduras, but this was not communicated. We entered Honduras and returned in the evening to find out that since we never stamped into Honduras, they could not stamp us out. We were disappointed that we did not get a Honduras passport stamp. As we were driving away we realized we needed another stamp to enter Guatemala, so we drove back to immigration. This frustration could have been resolved with the guides help. Other than that, lunch was great and the ruins were excellent.
