Experience the REAL Hopkins, Belize!
Hopkins Belize – the beautiful Garifuna village that is one of the best, and most authentic, places to visit on your Belize vacation! Welcome to Coconut Row – and our sister properties, Palm Cove Cabins and Buttonwood Guest House – the three most beautiful beachfront properties in Hopkins Village! We have a variety of accommodations to meet the needs of every group, from luxurious hotel rooms for honeymooners, to two-bedroom apartments for larger families, to stand-alone cabins on the beach.
All-inclusive resorts are NOT the best way to experience Hopkins, as you’ll be stuck eating expensive food and twiddling your thumbs in the “resort area,” several miles outside of the village, meeting nobody except fellow tourists. Would you like to experience the REAL Hopkins, Belize? Then come stay with us, right in the center of the village! Our beaches are gorgeous, our service is friendly, and our staff is fantastic… and you’ll love the experience of walking to all the wonderful local restaurants and bars, meeting the local villagers (they are amazingly friendly), and exploring the village!
Coconut Row has one of the nicest beaches in all of Hopkins, perfect for those looking to lounge in the sun while drinking a coconut! Our colorful collection of hotel-style rooms and two-bedroom apartments is located smack in the center of “downtown” Hopkins, within easy walking distance of all the local bars and restaurants. For those feeling lazy in the morning, there are four local restaurants within a two minute walk, and the best grocery store in Hopkins right across the street.
Palm Cove Cabins is our newest property, right next door to Coconut Row. We are excited to announce that upon completion of the renovations (in mid-February 2015), Palm Cove Cabins will be owned and operated by Coconut Row! Palm Cove is a collection of three stand-alone cabins and a two bedroom apartment, all on the beach.
Buttonwood Guest House is located three blocks north of Coconut Row, also on the beach. The hotel rooms at Buttonwood are the most luxurious rooms in all of Hopkins – just as nice as a resort, but at a fraction of the price! As with Coconut Row, Buttonwood also has some apartments for those with larger families or for those looking do to their own cooking. There is also a grocery store across the street, and one of the best local restaurants is a minute’s walk away, with several more within easy walking distance.
Hopkins Belize is a safe and friendly village. Your family will love the welcoming atmosphere and the Garifuna culture. It is also a terrific base from which to explore nearby areas. The snorkeling on Belize’s barrier reef is second to none – don’t miss it – and you can get dropped off right at our beach in front of your rooms! There are scenic rainforest hikes and spectacular waterfalls to swim beneath in the nearby Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve. Bocawina National Park hosts the longest zipline course in Central America, as well as waterfall rappelling (and more jungle hiking and waterfalls.) Cave tube cave in amazing caverns at St. Herman’s cave system, ride on horseback through citrus groves and rainforest trails, and drive the Hummingbird Highway on your way to visit Mayan ruins. We can arrange any of these things for you at any time; just let us know!
Let us help you with your travel arrangements. We are an agent for both Maya Island Air and Tropic Air and are happy to make your in-country flight reservations at no charge to you!
