Belize is world-famous for so many things! It is one of the most beautiful of all the Caribbean countries. When you visit us, you find everything from pristine, white sandy beaches and perfect azure-blue water to unique jungle adventures. You can explore the ancient Mayan ruins, and kayak along the rivers searching for exotic tropical birds and the mighty iguanas.
Placencia, especially, offers even more. Our part of paradise recently received World Travel Awards for the leading beach destination in Central America and Mexico. In addition, Placencia is also a perfect location for you to discover the mighty, gentle and majestic whale shark. March, April, May and June are the best months to swim, snorkel or scuba dive with the whale sharks.
The whale shark is gentle, majestic and beautiful. It is the world’s biggest fish, and can measure as much as forty feet in length. Whale sharks’ mouths can be more than four feet wide – but worry not because they do not bite. They will swim up to your boat to see what is going on, they will glide along with you as you dive down to visit with them in their habitat. Their curiosity encourages them to want to share the sea with humans, so visit us at Laru Beya Beach Resort in Placencia so you can experience one of the greatest wonders of the underworld.
Whale sharks congregate at Gladden Spit just off Placienca’s coast, from March to June. They come because other fish come. During these months, more than twenty species of Caribbean fish come to spawn, and whale sharks eat their eggs. Many fish come to lay eggs, whale sharks come to feast, and you will come to experience something like nothing else.
If you want to snorkel and scuba dive with these gentle and playful creatures, we will make it as easy, comfortable and convenient as possible.
