About Hopkins, Belize
Often billed as a village where “time moves like a turtle”, the unhurried and easygoing pace of traditional life in Hopkins is best experienced by adopting an open-minded, relaxed attitude.
Stretching approximately five miles around the perimeter of a small inlet, this fishing and farming village is a great place to experience Garifuna culture, including their unique group drumming, home-brewed Punta music, and working alongside with traditional craftsmen.
Often ranked as the friendliest village in Belize, Hopkins is in the center of the Garifuna culture, a unique people with both African and Caribbean roots who migrated to the country in the 18th century. With a laidback, easygoing atmosphere, the village is a popular destination for visitors interested in learning to play Garifuna drums, sampling Garifuna cuisine, learning more about traditional fishing shing culture, and as a jumping off point for the nearby Belize Barrier Reef.
Don’t miss Garifuna Settlement Day every November 19 when the town and surrounding area play home to a large festival complete with music, food, dancing, artistic exhibitions, and a dramatic re-enactment of the first landing of Garifuna on the shores of Belize in large canoes.
