Just eight miles south of Dangriga, minutes off the Southern highway, is the quaint and quiet fishing village of Hopkins. The road trip in will give you a great chance to spot the regal jabiru stork and other interesting birds that frequent the marshy landscape surrounding the village.
Spread across nearly five miles of a sandy, palm-strewn inlet, Hopkins is home to about a thousand Garifuna fishing and farming families. Time moves like a turtle; the men of the village fish and carve canoes while the women can be found weaving baskets and singing together. The Garifuna language is also widely spoken throughout the village.
