Planning Your Belize Vacation

The Management and Staff of Chabil Mar would like to take this opportunity to thank you for staying with us. We are looking forward to hosting your visit to our beautiful country of Belize and the Village of Placencia.

We are happy to provide the following overview of all we have to offer you, while on your visit.

Althea Schable & Natalie Ranguy - Reservations & Guest Services ManagersIn addition, we have included a few logistical items of information we hope you find helpful as you plan your arrival.

Placencia Village

Is in a unique location on the mainland of Belize. It provides us with the opportunity to offer our guests a vast array of Belize’s most sought after activities, including Fishing, Snorkeling/Diving, Jungle Experiences, Exploring Maya Archeological Sites, Sailing, Kayaking and Horseback Riding all from one central location.

It is an ECO paradise at your fingertips.

Or, if you prefer to just relax and pamper yourself, feel free to take advantage of the Dining, Bar, Beach, Pool, Pier, Massage and Luxurious Landscaping that make Chabil Mar so special.

In addition to all of these wonderful ways to enjoy your days, Chabil Mar is uniquely located within a short beach walk, bike, kayak (complimentary) or golf cart ride to the traditional fishing village of Placencia. Enjoy restaurants, beach bars, art galleries, souvenir shops, bakeries, ice cream parlors, markets and village life. There you can make friends with the locals of Placencia, along the world’s narrowest main street – the Placencia sidewalk. It is so narrow, that only one person can pass on it side by side comfortably. If two people meet, one of them has to step down into the sand to let the other pass by.
