Placencia Peninsula: The Best Area In Belize To Vacation
If you’ve been put off by stories that Belize hot spots Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker have become too crowded and hectic, there’s a gorgeous area of Belize that’s getting lots of attention from travelers who want to enjoy both tranquility and excitement: the Placencia peninsula.
This finger of land’s history goes back to the 17th century when English Puritans moved there from the island of Providencia Nova Scotia. By the 1820s, Placencia was known as a quaint fishing village and the trappings of that culture remain along the shore to this day. It’s an ideal summer vacation spot, especially if you stay at Laru Beya where you can vacation any way you like.
Marrying rustic with sophisticated
It’s no easy feat incorporating yesterday’s charm with today’s quest for luxury by tourists eager to bask in the relaxing glow of a tranquil tropical getaway, but Laru Beya architects have done it, minus all of the party atmosphere for which Ambergris and Caye Caulker are known.
From the moment guests arrive at Laru Beya, they find sophistication at every turn. That’s why the resort has earned an international reputation for being the place families, honeymooners, couples and adventure travelers choose for a non-stop vacation of fun and excitement.
What’s Your Adventure Quotient?
Adventure vacations are popular in Belize, which is why the makeup of people coming to Placencia and staying at Laru Beya is so eclectic. What’s your pleasure? Will it be thrills or pampering? What about both? Whether your Adventure Quotient is limited to lying around in the sun doing nothing or you crave staying active 24/7, there’s plenty of variety for everyone in your travel party.
Along the east side of the peninsula, miles of sandy beach with intermittent mangrove wetlands differ from the western side where a bay, fed by the Caribbean Sea, awaits active vacationers. Swim, dive, snorkel and stroll the 18-mile length of the beach. Along the way, visit villages small and large, especially Seine Bight, home to Garifuna residents and shops that showcase their Caribbean-inspired handicrafts and souvenirs.
A Belize vacation that perfectly suits your desires
While honeymooners and romantics love the fact that they can hide away in their plush Laru Beya Villa, your desire to spend your Belize getaway “your style” is at the heart of your visit and staff works assiduously to make certain every desire you bring to Placencia is honored. Italian, Caribbean and Mexican cuisine served at the outdoor restaurant and the fully-stocked bar keep guests satisfied and well-fed.
From affordable Belize all inclusive package rates to a spa with services guaranteed to give guests new leases on life, everything weary travelers need for a custom-tailored vacation (including the promise of a perpetually empty hammock reserved in your name!) is just steps away from the pool. Doesn’t this sound like a vacation destination that belongs at the top of your “must-visit” list?
