The best of both worlds. When I visited Hopkins Belize I was pleasantly surprised to find the coastal charm of the area while also surrounded by luxury hotels and endless activities to take part in. This gorgeous area is the ideal location for wedding couples who want an intimate setting mixed with adventure and relaxation. From snorkeling to lounging in a hammock ocean side, Hopkins Belize offers guests and couples an all around experience in the sun. Aside from Hopkins, there are a handful of gorgeous locations in Belize to choose from for a destination Belize wedding. Regardless of where you choose, be sure to bring sunscreen!
