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 from 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. "
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.
