A small and friendly beachfront lodge in the Garifuna village Hopkins offering relaxation and water sports on Belize's Caribbean coast.

Garifuna – Black Carib immigrants from St Vincent, themselves descended from Nigerian slaves - moved to Belize at the beginning of the 19th century. Their distinct, vibrant culture now defines the cheerful and welcoming village Hopkins, which stretches out languidly along a white-sand beach between the verdant Mayan Mountains and the Caribbean Sea. A dreamy place in which to relax, this fishing village – which hosts a marina at the point where the river Sittee flows out into the sea – also has several small hotels, bars and restaurants. Our favourite lodging is the beachfront Parrot Cove, laid-back and low-rise, with contemporary guest rooms clustered round an outdoor pool and an inner courtyard. There’s a gourmet restaurant with an eclectic menu overseen by one of Belize’s most prestigious chefs, and an equally informal beach eaterie. Complimentary bikes, kayaks and paddle boards are available, but you may choose just to swing in a hammock and watch the sun set.

What our clients say

  • Local flights were amazing enabling us to really see and appreciate the country.  In three weeks we only met 3 other British couples as most travellers appeared to be from North America, but Belize was well worth the visit and 2012 is the end of the current Maya calendar.  The diversity of the local cultures and cuisine were a wonderful surprise and experience.

  • Very impressed with the quality of 3 of the hotels we were staying in. We went mainly for the scuba diving in Belize which didn't fail to impress - truly world class.

  • JLA have been great, and Belize as a country is nothing short of astonishing in every way possible. We will be going back at some point. In fact I'd quite happily live there.

  • There were so many highlights, but undoubtedly the most memorable part was seeing jaguars near Chan Chich on two consecutive days, and even being able to take photos of the second one. This was the main aim of our trip, having failed to reach Chan Chich in October 2008 because of flooding.
