After spending nearly a month in Belize, I take the opportunity to reflect on how blessed I am to be able to go on such adventures.
Wanting to end my trip with a bang, me and 5 other travelers set out to find a local waterfall. After hitch-hiking 7 miles to get to the park, we hiked another 2 through dense jungle before arriving at our destination. We were rewarded by having this beautiful waterfall all to ourselves.
While in Hopkins Village, I took Garifuna drumming lessons. I went ahead and transposed some of my knowledge to some local boys who turned out to be quick learners.
Hopkins Village is a small beach town about 30 km south of the Dangriga. Besides beautiful beaches and laid back atmosphere, it is home to the countries Garifuna population, a indigenous mix of West African, Central African, and Arawak peoples.
