Hopkins, Belize: The right place for your Caribbean escape

Hopkins, Belize: The right place for your Caribbean escape

HOPKINS, Belize – Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort is located on a white-sand beach along Belize’s central coast, between a lush rainforest and the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. But how is Hamanasi so different from other resorts in Belize? Great question! This award-winning eco-resort is in an ideal location, giving guests access to numerous on and offshore adventures while also providing an authentic cultural experience.

Hamanasi offers half-day dive and snorkel trips to a pristine, five-mile long section of the Belize Barrier Reef, mostly within the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, the largest marine reserve in Belize. Divers get access to all three of Belize's atolls on all-day dive trips, which give you more diving variety than you can get anywhere else in the country. You can also try your hand at spear fishing for lionfish; divers work with a private Divemaster to learn about this invasive species’ habitat, how to spear and bag the fish, and how to clean them properly for consumption.

If the seas are rough or you prefer to stay on dry land, checkout Hamanasi’s inland adventures. The resort is a short drive away from beautiful national parks, dense rainforest, caves, waterfalls and even ancient ruins. Hike through the forest to the Mayflower waterfall, soar with the birds on a zipline through the canopy, explore the caves and cenotes at Blue Hole National Park, or discover the remarkable Mayan ruins at Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. Checkout the Reef & Rainforest Package to plan your adventure.

But what about Ambergris Caye and Placencia – aren’t those areas similar? If you like to be in a larger town around a lot of people and plenty of nightlife, Ambergris Caye maybe up your alley. If you want to hole up at your hotel and only do a few activities because sites are farther away, Placencia may work. However, Hamanasi provides convenient access to amazing sites, without the hordes of tourists, and is only one mile from Hopkins, an authentic Garifuna fishing village with fewer than 1,300 residents.
