“Our Home away from Home Base. Fully equipped for Family Fun and relaxation”

  • 5 of 5

I researched for a month to find this place and was not disappointed. Better than described and well located to explore Hopkins or entire country if you so choose. Annette and her team keep the place amazingly clean. Mirko has a large number of pre-researched and set up tours should you feel adventurous. Both were always available and proved an invaluable source of local information.

New brand name appliances and a Sealy mattress, Two new bikes.

We loved the deck and often found ourselves snacking there and enjoying the day. Local miles long unbroken beach - truly steps away - was amazing and we swam their daily.

We wanted for nothing during our 32 day Hopkins stay (15 here in the North Cabana) and We plan to return here as soon as our work will allow. Incredible value considering the high quality of the Cabana and property and value added inclusions like A/C and bikes that most others charge extra for.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The accommodations were excellent. We had everything we needed here: deck, hammocks, kitchen, air conditioning, and Mirko the property manager is also a travel agent and booked us on several excursions. We would definitely recommend this place. Both Mirko and Wade (the owner) went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and checked on us almost daily to see if there was anything we needed.

I will say that this cabana is not on the beach and faces a street, but the beach is a very short walk away and is easily accessible. All of the good restaurants we found were within walking distance of the cabana, as was the grocery store and a fruit stand for fresh produce. We enjoyed the local fare and there is something for everyone here.

We really enjoyed the trip to the Mayan ruins in St. Ignacio and the cave tubing at Blue Hole National Park. The snorkeling out near the reef and the fishing were also amazing. Some of the best snorkeling we have ever done, and we caught a large Barracuda as well as several other fish we were able to eat. All of this was facilitated through Mirko and his company Flying Boat Tours. Didn't even have to leave the cabana to book them.

There is WiFi included in the rental, which we didn't know about when we booked, and there is a cabana phone that you can put prepaid minutes on when you get there. Also very handy. All in all, I would very much recommend Latitude 17. It was a great experience and the people we dealt with were awesome.

In the Heart of Hopkins

  • 5 of 5

We loved Latitude 17. It is in the heart of Hopkins Village and we loved sitting on the deck watching village life. The beach is a 3 minute walk across the street. Everything we needed was included in the unit. It is clean and comfortable. Mirko and Annette take pride in what they do and it shows in the cleanliness of the unit.. If you need anything they are right there to help. We would definitely stay there again.

Cabana Latitude 17 Hopkins Belize!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderfully clean and well kept cabana in downtown Hopkins. Nicely furnished indoor and outdoor. Close to the beach, grocery store and restaurants. There are available golf carts for rent close by, Mirko and Annetee will pick you up from the Dangringa airport. You can cook in the well stocked kitchen. We had drinks on the front and back porch and there is even a palapa to sit under that overlooks the ocean- what a view. Mirko and Annette know the town and the aviailable excursions--use them as a great resource. Wonderful people, wonderful place. The only thing I would have liked in the cottage available for my use would have been a hairdryer, otherwise it was perfect and everything was thought of.

Cabana Latitude 17, Hopkins, Belize

  • 5 of 5

I look forward to returning to Hopkins, Belize and since my stay at the Latitude 17 Cabana from 1 - 15 June 2016, I will be wanting to stay with Mirko and Annett.

Mirko and Annett are both friendly, available, outgoing people, always willing to help with any question or need. The cabana and the property were meticulously cared for beautiful properties.

The cabana was very well furnished with anything needed for a party of four to prepare and enjoy a complete meal, the bed was very clean and comfortable and my son said the futon slept great. The pictures of the property in their ads prepared me for the cabana and I was not disappointed.

The weather was hot the first two weeks in June and the air conditioning kept the cabana perfectly cool.

I rented a golf cart from Mirko and Annett for ten days, the golf cart operated perfectly and allowed me to really become familiar with the layout of Hopkins.

Both Mirko and Annett recommended several places to eat and they were all wonderful, I enjoyed several breakfasts at the Thong across the street from the cabana.

I would definately stay with Mirko and Annett if I am ever in Hopkins, Belize again. Hopefully I will be.

Latitude 17 is right in the center of Hopkins Village and its front veranda is the perfect spot for watching village life go by! It is 30 seconds from the beach, 25 min from western hemispheres largest barrier reef and 30 min from the jungle.

Latitude 17 is a very well-priced option for everyone who want to discover Garifuna Culture in the friendly fishing village Hopkins.
