EL FLORIDO BORDER
Description : A dusty road with a few administrative buildings and lots of money changers.
Comments : The procedure is pretty straightforward and relaxed as there aren't usually too many commuters.
What to do ? Get your passport stamped on the Guatemalan side and pay Q10 exit fee (I was not asked anything but I was lucky). There should not be any entrance fee / Get your passport stamped on the Honduras side : you should get 30 days (extendable) / Proceed to the custom to pay the US$1 Honduras entry fee (same exit tax) / Pay for the pick-up to Honduras (Q10 or L20) / Then, if Sunday, change some money with those pushy guys (L15 for 1 dollar or L1.9 for 1 quetzal)
What you may not like ? Reaching the border at the same time as a tourist bus / Changing too much money : rates are slightly poorer than at the banks in Copan / The fluctuating entry fee to Honduras : the rate varies from nothing (be discreet and try to skip the custom procedure) to US$5 / The lack of buses to Copan and any rain during your trip, as you stand at the back of the pick-up
How long ? 15 minutes if not busy
Where to stay ? You did not come to stay
Where to eat ? You did not come to eat
The trip to Copan
/ Honduras : SSS / Right / Q10 or L20 / 30mn
