Los Mangoes is about 150 steps from the sea and about the same distance from Lebeha Drumming Center. Restaurants, shops, grocery stores, churches, laundry service, health clinic, public transportation, etc. are all within walking distance.

Relax in your private bungalow, take long walks on the beach, dip into the sea, get into the groove of the drums, watch the sun rise over the Caribbean, and set over the Mayan Mountains or just sit in the hammock and watch Hopkins go by. There are several adventures to participate in nearby for a memorable day trip; including, fishing, snorkeling/diving, hiking to waterfalls, exploring Mayan ruins, tubing, caving, zip lining, repelling, bird and wildlife viewing, and much more.

After you venture out on a day trip, come back to your oasis at Los Mangoes. Enjoy a home cooked meal in your equipped kitchen or allow us to arrange a chef, sit back and enjoy a book in your climate controlled atmosphere equipped with double hung windows to reduce bugs and noise, sink into your queen size bed and sleep like you have never slept before.

Reserve some time to experience the hospitable village of Hopkins. Bicycles are available on site for rental and are a good way to explore the village. Most everyone you cross paths with will greet you with a 'good morning, good day, or good night'. Hopkins is an enjoyable community where people take time to talk with their neighbors. And we think we have the best neighbors in Belize. Our property manager, Lawrence Casimiro, Junior, lives in the neighborhood across the street and is accessible at any time. Ms. Eileen, who lives across the street, is one of the best cooks in Hopkins, not to mention she is one of the sweetest people we have met in Hopkins. Lebeha Drumming Center is near by and Jabar(head of the center) as well as many of the drummers live close by. The time we have spent with our neighbors has been rewarding and invaluable to our overall experience in Belize.

Los Mangoes is a private home in the village of Hopkins. In our opinion, staying at Los Mangoes is the best way to experience the rich culture of Hopkins. Experience the vibe of Hopkins Village from Los Mangoes.

About Dia Lawless

Ned and Dia are from the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia. They first came to Belize in 2001. After stumbling upon Hopkins in 2003, there was no doubt in their minds that this was the place to establish their home away from home.

Dia Lawless purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Dia Lawless chose Belize

Your home was very comfortable and had the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

Dia thank you for sharing your home with us! Having towels, hair dryer, dishes....and the all important coffee pot!! I brought my favorite Dunkin Donut French Vanilla coffee! It was a delight to wake up and make a full pot of coffee! Beds were nice, furniture was nice and shades on window made very private inside! Roof as a sunning deck was fun. Yard was kept very trim and well landscaped with pretty flowering bushes!!

A Fantastic Find in Hopkins

  • 5 of 5

Los Mangoes is a fabulous place to stay in Hopkins. It is in a quiet area at the north end of the village, away from much of the traffic, yet close enough to the stores, beach and some nightlife. We stayed in the larger unit, Bellyful, which was very comfortable for the 2 of us. The unit and the grounds were spacious and clean, with a full kitchen, dining and sitting room, air conditioned bedroom with a queen size bed, bath with hot/cold shower, TV (although we didn’t use it), Wi-Fi, and a covered veranda that looked out to the sea. The owners, Dia and Ned, provided a wealth of knowledge about the area and all of Belize. Dia introduced us to some of the locals who made fresh bread, empanada, and other native dishes to supplement our cooking in the room. They are both very involved with the literacy program at the library to help the children read better and teaching them about the beautiful environment that they live in. This was our eighth trip back to Belize. We had a fabulous time in Hopkins at Los Mangoes, and highly recommend them if you want an extraordinary stay while in Hopkins.

Incredible hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic choice for a place to stay in Hopkins. We found it to be clean and comfortable with thoughtful touches like fresh flowers, beach chairs and the best beach towels ever! We found Ned and Dia to be amazing they gave us tons of advice and helpful information and helped arrange a wonderful snorkeling trip for us and our friends. Our trip wouldn't have been the same without them, we wished we could have had more time to visit and hangout with them, but there was so much to see and do! Next time! It is a great location to walk 2 min to the beach and a few minutes to restaurants. You won't be disappointed with this choice! We were also very impressed with how much they are doing to help the local community, especially the children. Laurie and Dan from B.C. Canada

Owner's Response: Laurie and Dan, Thanks so much for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! There is so much to see and do here it leaves little time to just hang out. But we will definitely have to schedule some hang out time and enjoy each other's company next time. Please also give our best to Scotty and Donna and thank them for the wonderful goggles for all the kids. You all have big hearts and we look forward to your return!

The property was very neat, clean, and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Ned and Dia are wonderful landlords. They provide a lot of little touches that mean so much. Such as fresh cut flowers every week, a prepaid cell phone with a local number, and just their helpfulness in getting to know Hopkins. I would highly recommend this property.

Awesome and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle, Hopkins is the place. Beautiful location and beautiful people who welcome you as if you were family. The added bonus is staying in town at Los Mangoes. The house is comfortable, clean, nice, and a short walk to the beach. Plus, Junior, the property manager, will make sure that you are well taken care of and will introduce you to the town. And thankfully we also got to meet Dia and Ned. They are awesome. My family and I are so grateful to have had this opportunity to stay here in Hopkins Belize!

fantastic, comfortable, affordable

  • 5 of 5

Every part of my trip to Belize was made better because of my home in Hopkins. The house was comfortable, a block from the ocean. It was very clean and comfortable. Hopkins is centrally located, so we were able to easily do activities in eastern, western, and southern Belize. The scuba was fantastic.

To stay else where in Hopkins would be foolish.
