Drive from Belize City to Hopkins..

My wife and I are making out second trip to Hopkins this coming September to celebrate our Anniversary.. Last time we were there (5yrs ago) we drove from Belize City and are doing so again. We remember a few little towns along the Western, Hummingbird, and Southern Hwys. We remember stopping at a little bar that sits up a hill just off the Hwy but can't remember exactly where that is at or if it is still there. Would love to stop there again.

Is there any where else you would suggest stopping on the way to grab a drink and a bite to eat?

If it was on the Western (now the George Price) Highway, the places would have been Cheers and Amigos on the south side of the highway about 30 or 40 miles or so from BC. Those places are still there.

Thanks MisterB.. I am thinking it was on Hummingbird just after you get out of mountains heading towards Hopkins and was on the right side sitting up a slight hill abound the road..

Yes the name of it is" Over the top" still there it is about a quarter mile before Country barn where you can stop for and Ice cream too.

There is also one around Middlesex on your left hand side . Hopefully you are not driving down on a Sunday.

Yes it is before Middlesex on the Hummingbird Highway. It is after Kropf's bakery after the village of St. Margaret. You will pass a one lane bridge after that you will come to a curve , right after that it will be on your left across from the bus stop

Don't miss the cafe Casita Del Amor on the Hummingbird Hwy (mm18). They serve brewed coffee and the place is so cute! You can find reviews of them on Tripadvisor

We did the drive 5 yrs ago on our honeymoon and are doing it again this September for our Anniversary. It was and easy drive and very nice to see all the different areas of Belize. We never felt unsafe. You just have to pay attention as roads are not marked well and the Speed Bumps come up out of nowhere ..
