Exploring the Beauty of Hopkins, Belize With a Rental Vehicle
Regularly voted as the “Friendliest Village in Belize,” Hopkins is located on the southeastern coast. Travelers heading to Hopkins have two options: either drive down from the Belize City airport (which takes about three hours) or flying into Dangriga and then driving up the coast (about 30 miles).
Renting a car is the best way to see the sights both in and around Hopkins as well as the surrounding region. Indeed, many travelers say that driving is half the fun of a vacation in Belize! And with your own rental vehicle, you can explore places like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (home to the world’s first jaguar preserve), ancient Maya cities, Punta Gorda (Belize’s chocolate-growing region), the village of Seine Bight, and the gorgeous Placencia Peninsula.
The best place to rent a vehicle is with Roam Belize. Based right in Dangriga in southeastern Belize, Roam Belize has a large fleet of modern, spacious vehicles that are perfectly suited to exploring the highways and byways of Belize. Instead of driving overland from Belize City and then back, you can rent a vehicle right in Dangriga and enjoy exploring the area at your own pace. When your vacation comes to an end, all you’ll need to do is fly from Dangriga back to Belize City and then back home.
Driving a car in Belize is simple and hassle-free. If you’ve got a valid driver’s license in your home country, you’re all set. The rules of the road are almost identical to those in the United States such as driving on the right, distances measured in miles, and all signposts written in English. The only big difference is that the panoramic views along the way are so beautiful that you’ll need to budget in extra time to stop and take photos!
Roam Belize also offers private ground transfers and shuttle services for visitors who prefer not to drive themselves. All of Roam Belize’s drivers are experienced professionals who have passed advanced safety courses. When you choose Roam Belize, you’ll receive friendly, courteous, and punctual door-to-door service to and from any destination in the country.
Roam Belize also works with tour operators to provide guided excursions to all of the top destinations in the country, including cultural tours of Hopkins to learn more about the Garifuna people, trips to Dangriga (the cultural capital of Belize), ancient Maya cities, national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, and adventure tours to enjoy activities like zip lining, cave tubing, bird watching, horseback riding, and more.
