Hi Everyone!

We wondered if you guys had any input on where to stay in Hopkins for a night or two on our way back from Placencia in Feb/March 09?

We don't need anything fancy, just clean and maybe ac for the hubby!!! And of course on the water!!

I like Jungle Jeanie's, also called Jungle by the Sea. It's south of the village, on the water. Pleasant cabanas, but no A/C. Hopkins Inn is another nice moderate place. Don't think they have A/C, but I may be wrong about that.

Another spot that's not bad and has A/C is Parrot Cove, which used to be called something else-Cove that doesn't come to mind at the moment. It's in the same area as Beaches & Dreams, south of Jaguar Reef. The rooms in the main building are smallish but moderately priced, and there's a pool. Fancier apartments are also available. Eating breakfast there earlier this year, I saw both a manatee and porpoises just off the beach.

Then of course you have the more upscale places. Hamanasi is the class of Hopkins, with Jaguar Reef and Hopkins Bay/Belizean Dreams condos also very good but not cheap.

We really enjoyed our stay at Laru Beya. Well located within stumbling distance of King Casava with a nice beachfront, clean cabins and even internet.

I know how you feel. We did our 16 day jaunt through Belize with only reservations for our stay in San Pedro. Otherwise, we just winged it. Have a great trip!

Greetings All!

I'm a single gal from the US and a writer. I am planning on coming to Belize possibly the first part of February for at least 3 months and possibly 5 or 6 months.

I need to rent a cabin... or a tree house... something cozy and NOT fancy at all. My biggest requirement is CLEAN :-D! I also need a kitchen as I love to fish and want to eat all of the local and wonderful fruits and veggies... and I write cookbooks! Having the internet available would be a real plus but if that's not reality, then I would need to be within walking or bicycle distance of an internet cafe.

I've done a ton of research but have never been to Belize (however, have traveled internationally a lot and solo)... In my research and with some very kind email responses (I already feel as if I have new friends in Belize!)... I think the Hopkins area is where I would love to be...

Can anyone please help me with some contacts for an extended rental in the Hopkins area? It would be much appreciated!

Also, I've seen photos online of the Hopkins Pre-School and am wondering what I would need to do to explore doing some volunteering while I am there (no, I don't have much money... that's why I need a reasonable rental... but I'd love to do some giving back while I'm there). Thanks!

Thank you in advance :-D... I can't wait to get to Belize and am hoping that it will eventually be my "permanent address!"
Warm regards,
