Hopkins Bay Resort, luxury in Stann Creek District, Belize Central America
story and photos by John Lamkin
The sound of the beating drums takes me back to some time before history, some time in the dark past where mystery lived. Someplace very far away from this mental/mechanical/electrical existence we now experience. Coming back from this “trip,” I’m in the Rhum Shack at Hopkins Bay Resort and the Garifuna drummers are taking a break.
This lovely resort is on the shore of Belize’s Caribbean, in Stann Creek District. I’ve just come up from Placencia on assignment for a luxury real estate feature. This is my next to last stop on this trip – my last “work” stop, then on to my favorite island, Ambergris Caye. From there I’ll take a boat taxi back to Chetumal bay, Mexico.
