We will be staying Hopkins at Coconut Row for 4 nights. We're planning on going out snorkeling 1 day on a boat, as this is something we enjoy a lot. We would do more of this, but we're headed to Tobacco Caye after for 4 nights, so we know we'll get plenty of snorkeling out there. We do want to do one day from Hopkins though to compare and see what it's like, so we know when planning future trips.
For another day we were considering hiking one of these places, as our hotel can arrange pick up/drop off for us.
*Hiking (unguided) in Bocawina
*Hiking (unguided) in Cockscomb
If you had to pick one - which would you pick and why? Keep in mind that we will also be doing a LOT of hiking on our third leg of the trip to Hidden Valley Inn in MPR. They have 7,200 acres, 90 miles of trails and 7 waterfalls.
I was also considering possibly the day tour to cave tube/then swim in inland Blue Hole. However, I'm wondering what the drive time/transport is from Hopkins to there. It seems like it would be pretty far. I know my daughter would love that (we had looked at staying at Caves Branch too), but I'm trying to figure out if we'd do that for a day or save it for another trip when we're staying closer to it.
We also considered renting bikes or a golf cart for a day to further explore the Hopkins area for a day as well.
