5 Great Reasons to Visit Placencia in December

December is simply a fabulous month to visit Belize. With lots of clear skies and plenty of sunshine, the weather is truly fantastic in December. As the world has begun to catch up with the fact that Belize is a vacation paradise with lots of things to do and see, more and more airlines have begun to offer non-stop flights from North America to Belize. As the region’s only English-speaking country, Belize is a great place for family vacations, adventures in nature, and romantic getaways.

With close access to both the reef and the top attractions on the mainland, the sandy shores of the Placencia Peninsula are an ideal base for a great December vacation in Belize.

Here are 5 terrific reasons to visit Placencia in December:

The End of the World Marathon

What started out as a semi-humorous way to celebrate the so-called prediction by the Maya that the world would end in 2012 has now become a Placencia classic. Runners can participate in either a half or full marathon as they race up and down the peninsula as throngs of fans cheer them on.

Escape the Rush

The first three weeks of the month (December 1-21) are the ideal time to benefit from the gorgeous weather while escaping the crowds that descend on Belize during the Christmas holidays.

Every Day is a Beach Day

The beaches of Placencia are regularly voted as the best in the country, a truly special honor in a nation with 180 miles of coastlines and hundreds of islands. Perhaps that’s why the locals refer to Placencia as “Barefoot Perfect”.

Lots of Things to Do and See

Although many people choose to vacation in Belize over the Christmas and New Years holidays, the first three weeks of December are also a great time to snorkel and dive the Belize Barrier Reef, explore ancient Maya pyramids and temples, and hike through the pristine rainforests and jungles that make Belize special. And, from Placencia, all these magnificent adventures and treasures are available from one central location.

Chabil Mar


Located just a few minutes’ walk down the beach from the picturesque Placencia Village, Chabil Mar is a multiple award-winning guest exclusive resort with its own lush tropical garden, two infinity beach-side pools, gourmet on-site restaurant, and beautiful luxury villas with personal verandas.

Spa days for pampering, on-site concierge to meet your every delight and complimentary use of bicycles, paddle boards and kayaks are just a sampling of the service and amenities at Chabil Mar, so you can be as active or relaxed as you want to be.

In order to take advantage of the wonderful weather from December 1-21 and escape the holiday rush, be sure to book your December vacation in Belize today. Contact our Reservations Manager for more information or to complete your December Belize beach vacation.
