Hey,

The trip from Dangriga airport to Hopkins ran us $45 USD one-way. Hopkins is definitely worth checking out.

I think there are 2 buses daily from Dangriga to Hopkins; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Not sure of the cost, but shouldn't be more than BZ$5.00.

Dangriga to Placencia by Maya Island Air US$92 and takes about 10 minutes. Otherwise get the bus from Dangriga (pick it up at the junction with the Southern Highway at the end of the Hopkins road) will be cheap and take maybe 2 hours depending on how the Placencia road is doing. 1 hour if the road is finished by the time you get there.

Not sure how much a taxi would be, that again will depend on the condition of the road, taxi drivers won't be keen on that trip I imagine.
