Hopkins

Welcome to Hopkins

Any fan of cultural tourism will tell you that a trip to Hopkins Village is unlike any other. Hopkins is a small, coastal, seaside village full of history. It is primarily inhabited by the Garifuna people, most of whom make a living from farming and fishing.

 

November is one of the best times to visit Hopkins because the 19th is celebrated as Garifuna Settlement Day, a national holiday that highlights the rich cultural legacy of the Garifuna people.

This tranquil hideaway will introduce you to native Garifuna foods (like cassava bread, mashed plantains, and hudut), handmade Garifuna clothes and crafts, and the lively art of Garifuna song and dance.

 

 

Another major draw for travelers is Hopkins’ gateway to the southern portion of the Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Hopkins is the place for an authentic Caribbean adventure with features like snorkeling, fishing, local drumming lessons, beach adventures and not to mention, access to some of the best dive sites in Belize – Everything you love about a vacation can be found right in this beautiful little village.
