Placencia Village

  • Jake's Purple Space Monkey

    Placencia Village Restaurants

    We found the Purple Space Monkey to be very satisfying. We ate there for breakfast and enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast, fry jacks, and orange juice, which all tasted great. We also used their WiFi and it was fast and reliable. We enjoyed live music while eating there for dinner. The nachos were great as well as the chicken teriyaki...

  • Hamanasi Resort

    Hopkins Restaurants

    Hamanasi is one of the two big resorts near Hopkins. It is beautiful but very removed from the local community. It seemed like most of the people staying there were unaware that the Setlement day festival was coing on near by. The food here was excellent and at least slightly inspired by local fare but it was basically American fare.

    Hopkins Off The Beaten Path

    While many visitors to Hopkins don't get out this way, a visit to the nearby Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is a terrific way to leave the beach behind and explore the wild jungle, for a different view of Belize. It is about 30 minutes from the village. Check out my recommendations of things to do there and enjoy while you're taking a break...

  • Internet Cafe

    Dangriga Shopping

    In addition to just wanting to see what Dangriga was like while we were in the area, we had a few other reasons to pay a short visit. In Hopkins, we were unable to find any stores selling wine, no ATM machines and no internet cafes - in short, a desperate situation without wine, money or communications!Our first pass through Dangriga was in search...

    Tobacco Cay Things to Do

    Tobacco key isn't the beat all place to do either activity. Although I'm not trying to discourage you in any way. You can walk in the the water from the edges of the island and see wonderful fish and the corals are coming back. I mean that the was a hurricane a couple of years ago that changed the island a bit by filling in a really nice lagoon...

    Tobacco Cay Nightlife

    I know this is somewhat of a joke but this is a small island. Before taking the skiff from Dangriga make sure you buy some rum (One Barrel is the Belizian brand) and some mixers or you can beer with you but there isn't much refrigeration on the island because of generators and solar power. It could be better but hey this is Belize and part of the...

Cockscomb Range

  • Excellent Bird Watching

    Cockscomb Range Things to Do

    Cockscomb Basin gives an opportunity to see many different jungle birds, and is well worth the time to hike around and look for different species. Early morning is best, but be prepared for the warmth and coolness even then; it can be deceptive.

    Cockscomb Range Transportation

    The toughest thing about getting to Cockscomb is actually getting there. The major bus lines will stop at Maya Centre, but that is still about a 30 or 40-minute drive away from the park entrance, and a good couple hours of walking should you attempt it by hand. Taxis in the village will cost about US$20 each way, probably more if you ask them to...

  • Tubing

    Cockscomb Range Things to Do

    You can easily spend a couple hours lazily drifting down the South Stann Creek River through Cockscomb Basin. With no dangerous fish or snakes, it is a relaxing place to drift and soak up the sun and maybe see some wildlife, like the howler monkeys we witnessed relaxing on the branches. You can rent tubes from the ranger station for about US$2.50,...
