Welcome to Los Mangoes and Hopkins Village. Hopkins is a friendly and lively Garifuna village that is situated on the Caribbean Sea. Experience the vibe of the Village from the comfort of a beautiful bungalow. Los Mangoes has magnificent views of both the sea and the mountains from its rooftop patio. Clean and tidy, simple but comfortable, it has two units with queen size beds, ceramic tile bathrooms with hot and cold water, AC, ceiling fans, and covered veranda. The larger unit, Bellyfull, has a fully equipped kitchen & living and dining area. The smaller unit, Blue Mango, is a studio style unit with efficiency kitchen area, reading nook, and double mahogany vanity in the large bathroom. You can rent a single unit or the whole house.
Blue Mango(studio style with efficiency kitchen, 1BR, 1BA)
Bellyfull(fully equipped kitchen, sitting and dining area, 1BR, 1BA)
Whole House(2BR, 2BA, fully equipped kitchen, etc.)
Los Mangoes is about 150 steps from the sea and about the same distance from Lebeha Drumming Center. Restaurants, shops, grocery stores, churches, laundry service, health clinic, public transportation, etc. are all within walking distance.
Relax in your private bungalow, take long walks on the beach, dip into the sea, get into the groove of the drums, watch the sun rise over the Caribbean, and set over the Mayan Mountains or just sit in the hammock and watch Hopkins go by. There are several adventures to participate in nearby for a memorable day trip; including, fishing, snorkeling/diving, hiking to waterfalls, exploring Mayan ruins, tubing, caving, zip lining, repelling, bird and wildlife viewing, and much more.
After you venture out on a day trip, come back to your oasis at Los Mangoes. Enjoy a home cooked meal in your equipped kitchen or allow us to arrange a chef, sit back and enjoy a book in your climate controlled atmosphere equipped with double hung windows to reduce bugs and noise, sink into your queen size bed and sleep like you have never slept before.
Reserve some time to experience the hospitable village of Hopkins. Bicycles are available on site for rental and are a good way to explore the village. Most everyone you cross paths with will greet you with a 'good morning, good day, or good night'. Hopkins is an enjoyable community where people take time to talk with their neighbors. And we think we have the best neighbors in Belize. Our property manager, Lawrence Casimiro, Junior, lives in the neighborhood across the street and is accessible at any time. Ms. Eileen, who lives across the street, is one of the best cooks in Hopkins, not to mention she is one of the sweetest people we have met in Hopkins. Lebeha Drumming Center is near by and Jabar(head of the center) as well as many of the drummers live close by. The time we have spent with our neighbors has been rewarding and invaluable to our overall experience in Belize.
Los Mangoes is a private home in the village of Hopkins. In our opinion, staying at Los Mangoes is the best way to experience the rich culture of Hopkins. Experience the vibe of Hopkins Village from Los Mangoes.
Ned and Dia are from the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia. They first came to Belize in 2001. After stumbling upon Hopkins in 2003, there was no doubt in their minds that this was the place to establish their home away from home.
Dia Lawless purchased this bungalow in 2013
Los Mangoes is in close proximity to all you can experience in Belize. It is located on the north end of Hopkins and is a great place to experience the vibe of the village. Hopkins is a safe and friendly community rich with culture and willing to share it with you.
Enjoy mountain and sea views from the rooftop, take a long walk on the beach, take a dip in the sea, and experience the wonderful community of Hopkins.
This was a fantastic choice for a place to stay in Hopkins. We found it to be clean and comfortable with thoughtful touches like fresh flowers, beach chairs and the best beach towels ever! We found Ned and Dia to be amazing they gave us tons of advice and helpful information and helped arrange a wonderful snorkeling trip for us and our friends. Our trip wouldn't have been the same without them, we wished we could have had more time to visit and hangout with them, but there was so much to see and do! Next time! It is a great location to walk 2 min to the beach and a few minutes to restaurants. You won't be disappointed with this choice! We were also very impressed with how much they are doing to help the local community, especially the children. Laurie and Dan from B.C. Canada
Ned and Dia are wonderful landlords. They provide a lot of little touches that mean so much. Such as fresh cut flowers every week, a prepaid cell phone with a local number, and just their helpfulness in getting to know Hopkins. I would highly recommend this property.
If you are wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle, Hopkins is the place. Beautiful location and beautiful people who welcome you as if you were family. The added bonus is staying in town at Los Mangoes. The house is comfortable, clean, nice, and a short walk to the beach. Plus, Junior, the property manager, will make sure that you are well taken care of and will introduce you to the town. And thankfully we also got to meet Dia and Ned. They are awesome. My family and I are so grateful to have had this opportunity to stay here in Hopkins Belize!
Every part of my trip to Belize was made better because of my home in Hopkins. The house was comfortable, a block from the ocean. It was very clean and comfortable. Hopkins is centrally located, so we were able to easily do activities in eastern, western, and southern Belize. The scuba was fantastic.
To stay else where in Hopkins would be foolish.
The owner and property manager went biond all expectaions to make sure we enjoyed our stay and everything went perfectly. Thanks for the great memories and friendships.
We spent two weeks in Hopkins in January 2016 at Los Mangos. Los Mangos was very comfortable, very clean and in the perfect location for us. It had everything we needed and we were well taken care of by Ned and Dia, the owners who are such amazing people totally enjoying life and all the experiences it has to offer. The property caretakers, Junior, his wife Liebi did an excellent job of making sure we had everything we needed and included us in their community so we could experience the true Hopkins, Belize. Los Mangos is a great place to spend your Hopkins vacation, restaraunts are within walking distance. We enjoyed the Tuesday night entertainment at the Driftwood and the Thursday night entertainment at the Swinging Armadillo. Hopkins has many talented drummers and musicians. We highly recommend Los Mangos and we will return.
You can enjoy relaxing at the bungalow swimming in the sea, beach combing, fishing, snorkeling, just sitting in the hammock or take a short trip to ruins, waterfalls, reefs, caves, rivers, etc.
