Biking in Belize: To Belmopan and Hopkins

Jan 16th 2014 — Biking,Yucatan, Belize and Guatemala — 12:26 pm

We rode from Belize City to the capital, Belmopan. The roads in Belize were way more rugged that what were were on in Mexico. The scenery reminded me of western North Carolina, with palms replacing the deciduous trees.

After a night in Belmopan we went back east on the Hummingbird Highway, probably the most picturesque riding of the trip. Relatively hilly at first, then you are in a valley passing numerous small villages. Lots of locals were hanging out near the highway. We probably hollered at a few hundred people. At the advice of a local we rode to Hopkins, a small town on the beach.

  1. Looks like a very interesting trip indeed. Your commentary is nice to read as well. So… was Hopkins? And was it hard to find people who spoke English?
