Staying at the Hopkins Inn was like finding Paradise ! The village of Hopkins is colorful, clean, small, everything that my husband and I wanted after 4 days of activities in the Cayo district. We showed up at around noon and our oceanview cottage was ready, right on the sand, with an unobstructed view of the sea from our verandah, and a walk of about 10 feet from our front door to a lukewarm ocean water! Placencia beach has a lot of algea in the water which makes it a little unpleasant to swim in,not so in Hopkins! The sand is white and as you enter the warm water, you keep walking on sand with no big drops, no rocks, no algea, just sand and water!I looked at my husband and declared "this is Paradise!"Rita brought us breakfast the next morning on our verandah, toast, fruit, and pastries ( the cabana has a coffee pot in it with coffee, so we could have as much as we wanted and as early as we wanted), and we just shared our time between reading, swimming, eating ( we did go the Jaguar reserve) and talking to people; there are several supermarkets in the village, and the cabana having a fridge, we bought water and beer, very handy.The cabana itself is very clean and very tasteful, good size and the bed is comfortable, good job Greg!Hopkins is a delightful village but you do need a car,I don't know if the bus goes there and the road is unpaved.
