Hopkins, Belize: Friendly Caribbean Village Close to the World's Second Largest Barrier Reef
Belize First magazine named Hopkins “the friendliest village in Belize.” Set on the Caribbean coast, the town is made up of about 1,000 residents, most of whom speak English. Its welcoming atmosphere has helped make it an up-and-coming tourist destination, and there’s a growing number of restaurants, small bars, and gift shops here.
Probably the biggest draw for tourists, though, is Belize’s barrier reef—the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. It’s located just off the coast in Hopkins, and Hopkins Bay Resort offers a variety of diving tours and cruises so you can see it on a dive. One of these trips heads to the Great Blue Hole, a site that Jacques Cousteau declared one of the top 10 dive sites on earth; 130 feet below here, there are some massive dripstones. Or, on another tour, you can wind through the Maya Mountains en route to Xunantunich, a preserved Maya ceremonial site. At the top, there are panoramic views of Belize, Guatemala, and the bald spots of monkeys.
