Belize is known for its natural beauty and the Placencia Peninsula in the southeast of the country is truly one of the most spectacular locations in the entire country. Affordable with a small-town friendliness, Placencia is a 16-mile long strip of land with the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea on one side and lovely tranquil mangrove-lined lagoons on the other. At the southern tip of the peninsula is Placencia Village, an authentic fishing community that has expanded slightly to include cafes, restaurants, banks, and diving and fishing outfitters for visitors keen to explore the nearby Belize Barrier Reef.
Laru Beya is conveniently situated with close access to some of the best adventures on the Belize mainland, including the nearby Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. The only natural park where native Central American jaguars still roam, Cockscomb is a great place to experience the rich variety of flora and fauna found in the country. Other popular destinations on the mainland include trips up the famous Monkey River where adults and children alike can enjoy an afternoon howling along with the monkeys that gave the river its name. Other popular destinations include exploring Ancient Mayan ruins like Nim Li Punit and Xunantunich.
Laru Beya also offers convenient access to the nearby Belize Barrier Reef. Just a few miles from the resort lies Silk Caye, a small island that is internationally renowned for its clear waters, sandy ocean floor and rich opportunities for viewing marine life while snorkeling. Also nearby is Gladden Spit, a tiny spot of land that is the perfect spot to launch a diving expedition to see whale sharks during their annual migration through the waters off of the coast of Belize.
If you’re heading to Placencia, there is no finer destination than the resort of Laru Beya. The experienced staff can arrange your travel and help book the perfect tour so that you can experience the best that Belize has to offer.
