Hopkins offers all the local supermarkets and utensils you will need to eat and cook in the jungle at the jaguar reserve. The beaches in Hopkins vary throughout the year, from good to poorly looked after, as the ocean dumps a lot of debris that is not cleared regularly. If you are driving Belize, the one road in Hopkins is filled with potholes over the whole road, so there is no avoiding a bumpy ride.

Hopkins hostels are generally available all year round with no need to book in advance. On Settlement Day is the only time a booking is suggested, but many people still turn up with no reservation.
