Bocatura Bank is tucked in off the Sittee River road- see VRBO map- it is south of the Village about 2 miles, and 1 mile from Belizian Dream, Hamanasi, and Jaguar Reef Resorts. The area is surrounded by jungle growth, plains grasses, and cane grasses.

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.
Why Hopkins: 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.
