We are located in Hopkins, just south of Dangriga. Being located on the central part of the Belizean coastline puts most of the country within easy reach of Beaches & Dreams. The Belize Barrier Reef, Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve and Three Sisters waterfalls are all close by and accessible. The Mayan ruins and Glover's Reef tours require full days to do, but are well worth the trip.
Hopkins itself is a small Garifuna Fishing village, but also home to a diverse cultural community. The Creoles, Mestizos and Mayans all provide their input into the melting pot that makes Hopkins a wonderful village to visit. With 5 miles of beach, we are located at the southern edge of the beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts, but with-in walking distance to them all. Enjoy the feeling of seclusion on your own patch of perfect beach, while being close to all the happenings of the village. Take a kayak out to see the sun set over Victoria's Peak, one of the highest mountains in Belize, and view the rest of the Mystic Maya Mountains as another day in paradise closes it's eyes.
Enjoy an evening of local Garifuna Drumming and sample some Belizean cuisine. Mingle with the friendly villagers, who are always happy to share their rich culture with visitors. Hopkins is known as the Friendliest Village in Belize, and for good reason.
Watch the local fisherman paddle out at sunrise in dug-out canoes to catch their fish for the day. In the afternoon, a few sailboats can be seen on the horizon and morning charters come in from fly fishing, trolling, snorkeling and scuba diving tours, all just minutes from our little village.
Take an early morning bike ride to see a plethora of birds bidding good morning to a new day. Hopkins' location near the mouth of the Sittee River lends to the areas diverse flora and fauna. Explore seafront, savanna, mountains and jungle all with-in a 5 mile radius of Beaches & Dreams.
