The fishing is wonderful! If fresh lobster and conch are something you are looking for, you have come to the right place! We are one mile west of three of the best ocean front restaurants in Belize. Or go into the village and eat at one of the local restaurants and enjoy a local cultural “Garifuna” dish.
A full time crew maintains our properties. They visit the property daily to handle any of your concerns. Just ask!!
We also have a vacant beach front lot which you are welcome to visit or camp out for the day.. ask Anthony or Gil about it.
Let us help you have a vacation to remember!
How to get here: Four major airlines fly into Belize International Airport (BZE). From there you have two options: rent a car and drive down to Hopkins or take one of the regional carriers (Tropic Air or Maya Air) to the Dangriga Airport where you can arrange for us to pick you up.

wonderful experience!Guest comment entered by manager
We had a fabulous time in Hopkins and at Bocatura. We ended up doing more diving than we planned, and had a really amazing time with Lucie, Declan and their crew. Because of that, we didn't spend a ton of time on the river or any time at all at the beach! We went out to South Water Caye and to Glover's Reef. Fantastic weather and beautiful diving. Saw lots of wildlife down there, turtles, rays, eels, even a blacktip reef shark! As for the cabin, it was totally lovely. There wasn't a lot of wind and we were there right after some rainy weather, so I think the mosquitoes were in full effect, but we had a nice time hanging out on the deck, and it stayed pretty cool indoors. You've done a great job making it comfortable, and it had everything we needed. Maybe one thing that would have been nice would be a place to put a little clothesline on the patio, to hang wet things out to drip-dry? Bet the guys didn't think of that! That's my only tiny suggestion. Tony and Anthony and co were all really friendly, great and helpful. In fact, every single person that we met in Belize, locals, ex-pats and travelers, were all totally nice and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. Thanks again!!

About: Saltwater fly fishing was the addiction that brought my family to Hopkins, Belize but it was the laid back atmosphere and warm, friendly people of Hopkins that made our decision to build a home an easy one.
Hopkins was a natural choice for me. The flats are a quick panga ride away and the local restaurants are just down the beach. If you are looking for a relaxed, laid back town, Hopkins fits the bill perfectly.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Bocatura Bank is perfect for the individual interested in observing nature. The baby hummingbirds, 4'-5' iquana, quash... a whole tribe (30) emerges from the jungle to eat the Molly apples or bananas when in season, large birds dot the mangroves along the river edge. Small birds search the property for food.
