Placencia – The Peninsula and The Village
Sixteen miles of natural sandy beach, a virgin mangrove-fringed lagoon, a wonderland of coral-studded cayes, nearby jungle rivers and pristine rainforest Garifuna, Creole and Mayan cultures and ancient Mayan ruins make Placencia the ideal location for the adventure traveler!
Laughing Bird Caye is a beautiful Belizean isle situated on the western side of Victoria Channel, only 11 miles off the coast from Placencia Village in the Stann Creek District of Belize. Laughing Bird Caye is probably the single most popular day trip from Placencia. The island is what many consider the perfect tropical paradise – sand, palm trees, free of flies and surrounded by shallow coral reef perfect for snorkeling or diving.

Highlight: The laughing gulls after which the isle is named have moved on, but herons, blackbirds and pelicans can often be seen.
