Choices of Activities to do in Belize
 
Beach lovers;
Weekend in Hopkins: Hopkins is a Garifuna fishing village originally called Ougadudoo, change to Hopkins in 2000 and is quickly becoming a tourist spot. First placed I stayed when traveling Belize, I met Trish and stayed at her unique hometel have been friends with her ever since. . Hanging out in Hopkins at with Trish at Kismet offers a personal first hand look at the everyday Belizean experience and into the local DRAMA. Trish knows everybody and everyone knows her, Kismet is built on the beach, and is fairly private as long as the locals are not strolling by. Trish makes hot breads and tea every morning and cooks a dinner at night. Hanging out with Trish is a blast and going the cayes with her is an experience to remember. Best time to go to Hopkins is in the beginning of the trip -from the Airport to Punta Gorda. We stay there a couple of days, then catch transportation on to PGEstimated cost ; 25.00us a night taxi-about 20 us each way to get to kismet. Cost: 130.00 US
Punta Negro- Breathtakingly Beautiful
The most breath taking adventure Spending the day and Night in Punta Negro is another journey you will never forget. Punta Negro is a Negro village located on the shore of Belize where there is o commercial contamination. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The beach is pure sand the waters are un spoiled. It is unspoiled Earth, we get there by boat and go snorkeling, diving for conch shells and cook the conch on the beach , we can stay overnight in the small village for a small fee. The accommodations are simple, and native. , the people are warm and open. Estimated cost 200.00 us ( please note Gas is very expensive in Belize, and is reflected in the cost) Believe me it is worth it!!!!!

You will learn how to work with Immigration customs and money. If you know some Spanish, you will get a chance to use it here. I have some friends I travel with who know the ropes better than I , remember we are Americans and look it, Great prices on Silver, hotels are real cheap and so is food. Estimated cost: 200 us
