Property description

Bocatura Bank Cabins are ideal for the naturalist, birder, fisherman who would like affordable, quality and clean accommodations. 

The Bocatura Bank is four acres with tall canopy trees, fruit trees and a variety of landscaped shrubs. The property has 925 feet of river frontage. 

There is a 90' dock running parallel with the river. The dock is great for fishing and easy access for our kayaks. The river edges are a combination of mangroves, palm trees, grassy edges. The river is a main outlet for the Cockscomb Basin and shares much of the same wild life. There is a lighted 500' walkway that connects the parking area to the cabins.


Cabin 2 (VRBO 464737) is a 2 bedroom (1 queen, 2 twins) one sofa bed in great room ; Cabin can sleep 4. It has a fully equipped full size kitchen and bath with a shower. The kitchen is in the great room that has a full size kitchen, dishes, silverware, pots, pans and utensils.

There is a charcoal grill just outside the cabin.

Cabin 3 (VRBO 762066) has one queen size bed and a bath with shower and a mini kitchen for basic cooking. Kitchen has a microwave and small refrigerator. It has basic cooking utensils.

Cabin 4 (VRBO 639162) is a studio with a queen size bed in a great room that has a full size kitchen, dishes, silverware, pots, pans and utensils.
The charcoal grill is just outside.


Cabin 1 is the residence of our caretaker.

All cabins have large micro-screened-in porches and deck chairs and cushions. Security lights are on every building and security bars on all windows. 



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 of quash (20+) 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.

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 and plant your toes in the sand or go for a swim... Ask Anthony or Gil about it. 

Let us help you have a vacation to remember!

I am frequently asked about fishing in the river .. recently “Tim” was staying at Bocatura and contributed the following (Feb 2016).

“Fishing was good and I caught permit, barracuda, snapper, jacks and catfish just in front of the property (Bocatura)…..The water was clear and I caught on both lures and shrimp, fish and conch baits. I put in the hours to get the results but quickly learned that sunset and the first hour of darkness was the best time no matter what time the high tide was. Tony told me I was the best fisherman that had stayed but I expect I just stuck at it to find what worked and when. Fishing from the kayak was great fun.”

Bocatura is centrally located to reach many of Belize’s exciting activities. 

Water based activities: 
Snorkeling trips,
 Scuba diving
 
Inland Trips:
 Mayflower Waterfall Hike,
 Mayflower/ Bocawina waterfall repelling,
 Jaguar Preserve in the Cockscomb Basin, 
Jungle horse back riding,
 Guided hikes
Cave tubing, Monkey River trip, 
Xunatunich Mayan Ruins, Southern Ruins trip ,
 Zip line,
 Marie Sharps factory- HOT sauce and
guided bird watching.

 Work with our tour partner(s) to plan your week.



The fishing is wonderful! drop fishing, trolling, river and lagoon
Fly-fishing. If fresh lobster and conch are something you are looking for, you have come to the right place!

“South Hopkins” (request our map) is home of three of the best ocean front restaurants in Belize. “South Hopkins is 2 miles form Bocatura. Or go into the village and eat at one of the local restaurants and enjoy a local cultural “Garifuna” dish.


Bocatura cabins are comfortable cabins on the Sittee River. The river flows from the watershed of the Cockscomb Basin to the west. The river area is ideally situated for mangrove growth along the banks and out to the mouth of the river where there are tall, tall black mangroves.
Bocatura Bank is tucked in off the Sittee River road- see VRBO map- it is south of the Village about 3 miles, and 2 miles from “South Hopkins” with Belizean Dream, Hamanasi, and Jaguar Reef Resorts. The area is surrounded by jungle growth, plains grasses, and cane grasses. Bocatura Bank property is a well maintained 4 acres of trimmed lawn area. It is a paradise for birders.
Recent guest comment:
”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.”

The owner comments: 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 great local restaurants. If you are looking for a relaxed, laid back town, Hopkins fits the bill perfectly.
