Hopkins House Description
Jan’s Beach Cabana is nestled among palm trees on a quiet stretch of white sandy beach directly on the Caribbean Sea. Secluded, yet minutes from the shops and restaurants of the quaint Garifuna fishing village of Hopkins. Enjoy beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea to your East and the Maya Mountains to your West. Wake up to the sound of waves and tropical birds. Enjoy your coffee on the veranda overlooking the water and pristine cayes offshore. Be on the lookout for dolphins, manatees, pelicans, parrots, magnificent frigate birds, herons, ospreys and hummingbirds just outside your door.
