Advertised as the "Friendliest Village in Belize," Hopkins remains a small fishing settlement on a stretch of golden coastline that offers plenty of modern amenities.
Start off your visit on the 7th (Sat): see what you can catch with a fishing tour and then look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at Glover's Reef Marine Reserve and then identify plant and animal life at Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve.

For where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Hopkins day trip planning site .

Washington DC, USA to Hopkins is an approximately 12-hour flight. Traveling from Washington DC to Hopkins, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.
