From San Pedro White Sands to Hopkins, the next best thing to Cancun, Mexico!
Warning: This post includes tons of relaxation, exotic drinks and getting spoiled by the beach.
While getting off the boat to Hopkins the second you notice, besides the beach and resorts, is the “affordable body massages by the beach” signs, before seeing the third fantastic thing which is the crazy big slide and bar in the middle of the water.
My resort was sure like a Carribean dream castle,
mainly when it was lunchtime after your kayaking, snorkeling or diving near the bar
and there was this one slogan that always stayed in our minds.. and on our tongue I suppose!
Corny Yes! But it’s true.. the view was unbelievable, especially when it was winter season in NYC and my friends were complaining to me about the rain!
I couldn’t help myself not to send them a picture!
We did have some issues! Like when my friend got stung by a jellyfish when we were swimming together… And I had to stay away from the sea! So I boycotted the sea for 2 days! 🦑 Lol
I did go into the pool.. all three of them!!
I even got to work on my laptop like the Digital Nomad I am..
But what I loved about Hopkins was not just the resorts and staying up late partying, but the community!
We walked into town and eat lunch there for one day, and all I could think about was the Dominican Republic and when we went to the secret beach
Comparing both experiences, I saw myself enjoying my stay within the local community and playing with the little dog the local bar owner had. Haha, Yes, it’s true… Simplicity is Luxury!
