Welcome to Hopkins

Hopkins

Hopkins is one of those rare destinations, where nature and culture takes precedence and explorations are endless...

Hopkins is known as the cultural center of the Garifuna community. Practice the traditional drumming and dancing while meeting the locals. Book a visit with the Lebeha Boys for a truly traditional dancing and drumming demonstration, inches away from the Caribbean Sea. Here, you can meet some of the nicest people in the world, dance to the rhythms  of the Garifuna's drumming, while indulging in tasty cultural foods.

After that, check out the over 100,000 acres of preserved jungles, and rivers within the famous Maya Mountains, or head to Hopkins Beach for a relaxing day.
