We just got back from our second stay at the Hopkins Inn. Six years ago we had stayed with Greg, Rita and Lucy the dog (then a puppy) and it was on my "bucket list" to once again drive down the stunning Hummingbird Highway from Belmopan to Hopkins and swing in a hammock on the beach at Hopkins Inn (Belikin beer in hand). Check!
Along with serving a delicious breakfast each morning, Greg and Rita will help you find a local guide for any activities that you are up for. While, this time, it was too choppy to snorkel with Noel Nunez (we did this last time and HIGHLY recommend it), on our last day, we were able to book the Mayan guide Marcos Cucul for a kayaking cave tour down Caves Branch River. Incredible. We learned about kayaking, nature, the river, and a bit of Mayan history from this amazing soft spoken man. I can't recommend Maya Guide Adventures highly enough.
All in all... a perfect trip! Thanks, Rita and Greg! Give Lucy a scritch for us!
