Well, Belize does not disappoint. Belize has to be the perfect place to put your feet up and chill plus take in many great sites and history. For those that do not know where Belize is, this incredible part of the world can be found on the Caribbean coast of Northern Central America.
Jungle to the west and hundreds of Islands sprinkle the Belize Barrier reef. This is the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Australia, of course, is number 1. The Belize barrier reef is approximately 300km long. When looking for the best place to stay in Belize, we must be honest and say there are so many beautiful places, but we pride ourselves on Seiri del Mar, with spacious, luxurious accommodation. A breath-taking coastline and a pool that, well, let’s say, will become your favourite place on earth.
So back to why Belize is so fantastic and a must for your next holiday. Like many who travel to Belize, you might choose to visit Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, San Ignacio, or you might choose paradise on earth and head straight to Hopkins Village and stay at Seiri del Mar, which does mean heaven by the sea. “Seiri” is Garifuna for heaven, and “del Mar” is Spanish for “the sea” Hopkins is a small village in Southern Belize, its authentic and is most welcoming to visitors. A large part of the population is the Garifuna people, who have maintained their cultural traditions. For example, you will hear the drums; this is a big Garifuna cultural tradition.
Hopkins Village has its beautiful church, a library and a local school. On a weekday, you will find the fresh produce market stall selling fresh fruit and vegetables. Local eateries and bars are spotted across the village, each bringing something unique and fun to your Belizean experience. It is the perfect place for a vacation. On a warm evening, you will hear the music and smell the BBQ, stop and watch a local basketball game right there in the middle of Hopkins village. When you are done, hop on your bicycle or a Golf cart ( Seiri del Mar offers both to their guests)
And enjoy your scenic bike ride back to your luxury villa.
