Embrace Placencia Peninsula for its sun-kissed sand and laidback vibe. All beach vacations here are politely governed by one unwritten rule: “stress” is not allowed.
Known locally as “Barefoot Perfect,” Placencia gives you an intimate opportunity to become one with the only golden-sand beaches on mainland Belize. Luxuriate in the unspoiled beauty. Curving along a slender peninsula along the southern coast, you will embrace the charm of a traditional Creole fishing village coupled with village restaurants, bars and art galleries.
Travel north along the peninsula and indulge in full-service, up-market hotels, resorts, private homes and condominiums with a range of services including spas, and exquisite fine dining. Check frequently for vacation deals and romantic honeymoon packages. You and other adventure travelers can quickly connect for excursions of all kinds, including diving and snorkeling excursions, fishing trips, archaeological and rainforest expeditions – anything for the perfect Belize vacation.
