How to get from Hopkins Village, Belize to Placencia by bus

Ready to leave Hopkins Village Belize? Confused on the easiest way to, Placencia Belize? So were we, but it actually wasn’t that hard!  Here is our guide there.

Take the bus from the center of town in Hopkins to the highway outside of town $2 BZD leaves at 11 am and 2pm. 10 minute ride.

Nica Bus

Or hitchhike, it’s very common

Wait across highway, the side away from Hopkins.

Take the bus labeled placencia $6 BZD buses leave from Dangringa bound for placencia at 11am, 2pm, & 4:30pm

It works well to catch the 2pm out of Hopkins, you will wait a few minutes for the 2pm to get from Dangeinga to in front of Hopkins.

Thanks - this is helpful! Were you glad that you spent time in both Hopkins and Placencia? Do you think it's worth it to go to them, or do you think it'd be better to stay on the islands?

Placencia is a must, we visited in the summer and found Hopkins too sleepy for our taste. It was ok, but I would have traded my time in Hopkins for more in Placencia or other cities on the trip. The islands are great, there are some really beautiful ones, Caye Caulker is a must, we found Ambergris Cay to be just ok.
