San Juan Intibucá
A bumpy 52km north of La Esperanza, the village of SAN JUAN INTIBUCÁ is slowly finding its way onto the tourist map thanks to a local cooperativa promoting the area’s Lenca traditions. Information about tours and demonstrations is available from Hotel Guancascos in Gracias or Gladys Nolasco (2754 7150 or 9786 1012, [email protected]), who can be found at a building marked Docucentro Israel copias y mas, a five-minute walk from the main square, opposite a small fruit and vegetable market. Options include participating in the roasting of coffee beans, hikes to nearby waterfalls and cloudforests, and observing the production of traditional handicrafts.
