Did you know that Placencia has the world’s narrowest street?
The Guinness Book of World Records recognized the “Placencia Sidewalk” which was constructed over 30 years ago as a means of wheel barrowing fish without fighting through the sand as the narrowest street in the world.
The street which runs to the center of the village is lined with homes, coffee shops, hotels, guest houses and restaurants.
For those who do not know, Placencia Village sits at the tip of a 16–mile peninsula in Southern Belize and is the only place on mainland Belize that offers unspoiled white sand beaches. The village is also known locally as “Barefoot Perfect.”
Miles of natural sandy beach, a virgin mangrove–fringed lagoon, a wonderland of coral–studded cayes just off-shore, nearby jungle rivers (home to the howler monkey) and pristine rainforests, Garifuna, Creole and Maya cultures and ancient ruins, all within a short tour away, make Placencia the ideal destination for the intrepid traveler.
