You can’t beat Hamanasi’s location in Belize. You will have the best access to pristine nature both in the water and the rainforest, as well as the greatest variety of things to do. Hamanasi is only a day trip away from Mayan pyramids, caves, jungle rivers, birding, horseback riding, zip lining, rainforest hiking, snorkeling, diving, fishing, local culture & more.
We offer half-day dive and snorkel trips to a pristine five-mile long section of the Belize Barrier Reef mostly within the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, the largest marine reserve in Belize. For divers we host full day dive trips to all three of Belize’s atolls, giving you more diving variety than you can get elsewhere in Belize. In April, May and June during the week of the full moon Hamanasi offers dive trips to see Whale Sharks, the largest fish in the sea! Rough seas? Divers and snorkelers who are unable to go out on the water due to poor weather conditions can join our inland adventures.
We are not on an island! Any day that suits you it is easy and cost effective to do both marine and land based activities that are numerous and diverse. We are a short drive away from the several national parks, the rainforest, caves, waterfalls, jungle rivers, Mayan sites and the world’s only Jaguar Preserve!
Just down the beach from Hamanasi is Hopkins, a funky, traditional Garifuna fishing village with only about 1,500 people. You can immerse yourself in the rich culture of the Garinagu, which includes plenty of drumming, dancing, music and their own language. Hopkins is safe and has several small local bars and restaurants serving delicious Belizean fare. One mile inland is Sittee River Village, along the banks of its namesake, a beautiful jungle river.
Our Belize reservation staff are at the resort and ready to assist you 365 days per year.
