Q: How do I get to Placencia Belize?

A: If you’ve made it a road trip, you can drive to Placencia from North America, but if you can’t wait to start your adventure, local flights from the Belize International Airport via Maya Island Air or Tropic Air will speed up your arrival on the peninsula.

Q: What is the weather like on Placencia?

A: Unlike North America where weather differs dramatically from season to season, you can count on Belize for consistency. It’s warm and sunny year-round.

Q: I have neither the time nor desire to learn foreign languages. Will I have trouble conversing during my holiday?

A: Nope. English is Belize’s and Placencia’s primary language, but if you speak Spanish, Garifuna, or Creole, you’ll find lots of people to chat up with.

Q: What should I bring when I pack for my Placencia vacation?

A: This area is one of the most laid-back destinations on the planet. Pack according to the activities you intend to pursue. For aquatic sports fans, add scuba or snorkeling gear and if you intend to hike forests, jungles, and Maya ruins, bring the right footwear. Include a swimsuit, sunglasses, and mosquito repellent.

Q: Must I exchange my U.S. dollars for Belize dollars?

A: You’re welcome to do so if you like the idea of carrying bills with an image of Queen Elizabeth II in your wallet, but just about everyone takes U.S. dollars. If you do want to change money, head for the nearest bank.

Q: Should I think about a car rental for the duration of my stay?

A: Not necessary if you stay at Chabil Mar Resort where bicycles are available, Placencia Village is a short walk away and shuttle services and taxis are available. Every tour associated with our Belize vacation packages include airport pick up and return, so who needs a rental?

Q: What else should I know about my time in Placencia?

A: That you’ve arrived at Belize’s equivalent of nirvana. At just 16-miles-long—and with two coasts (Caribbean and lagoon) just a mile apart—this is a delightfully navigable destination. This isthmus is loaded with things to see, do, taste and experience, and by booking that Belize vacation package, everything you need and want is at your fingertips. Sound like the getaway you’ve been dreaming of?
