Hopkins Village is the perfect place to stay for people that like to be in the heart of the action. It is about a 2 mile long bustling village full of restaurants, bars, and shops.
With the action comes some noise. You are likely to hear music, dogs barking, roosters crowing, and horns beeping.
About 1 mile south of Hopkins Village begins the Resort Zone. This area stretches on for several miles and is all newer construction. There are several resorts and guesthouses all through this area.
