Getting to Hopkins Village from Belize International Airport

Hopkins is a small Garifuna village on the coast of the Stann Creek District in Belize, known as the “coast with the most” in Belize. Today Hopkins Village is a small but vibrant community of approximately 1,500 villagers. The people live mostly by fishing and recently, many have found work in the growing hotel industry. The residents are known for their friendliness and genuine hospitality and are very welcoming to visitors. It is a small village but full of rustic charm.

Once you have book your vacation in one of the many beautiful resorts in Hopkins, they are plenty of ways to get to Hopkins:
