You can toss a coin, throw a dart at a map or go directly to Placencia, Belize where everything you need and want is at your fingertips.
Imagine yourself planning a vacation to Massachusetts and wondering if you should stay in Boston or on Cape Cod! Both are amazing but you’ve got to choose one. These days travelers confront the same dilemma after deciding to vacation in Belize. The answer? The Placencia peninsula. It’s a slice of heaven that deserves your attention.
Why Placencia has become such a popular destination
-It’s only 16-miles long. You can tour the entire peninsula on a bike to add a fitness component to your visit.
-Proximity to Placencia Village, Seine Bight and Maya Beach provide super “urban” escapes. Placencia Village’s main street is the narrowest in the world, say Guinness Book of Records editors. Snap a selfie!
-Explore the area’s roots: This colorful fishing village was founded by English buccaneers in the 1600s.
-Placencia is home to 14+ Maya sites, located around the Placencia Lagoon. Bring your curiosity.
-The world’s second longest barrier reef is off the Placencia coast. Swim, scuba dive, kayak, snorkel and fish there for a marine adventure that has no equal.
-Placencia is Mother Nature’s playground. Cruise the Monkey River, explore the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Reserve and roam those Maya ruins nearby. Trek rainforests, jungles and island hop.
-Everyone speaks English, so you can chat up the friendly Belizeans who never met a tourist they didn’t like.
