The Best Places to Stay in Placencia Belize


Placencia Belize

Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and a lagoon, the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize features more than 16 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, easily traversed by beach cruiser bicycle. The northern part of the peninsula is where vacationers can relax on the sand or fish the lagoon while the southern part is home to the airstrip and the village, complete with internet cafes, banks, gourmet restaurants and transportation connections to the rest of the country.

The village of Placencia is your one-stop shop for enjoying many of the popular marine activities at the nearby Belize Barrier Reef, including kayaking, snorkeling, fly fishing, and scuba diving. Nearby mainland attractions include exploring Maya ruins, visiting the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve, or visiting the village of Hopkins to experience Garifuna cooking, music and culture.
