The founders of the site Michael and Nicole were recently vacationing in Placencia Belize and wrote about their experience in a blog post entitled “Things to do in Placencia”.
They described the peninsula as follows:
Placencia to the south of the country is sited on the long ribbon of beaches which runs parallel to the mainland. It is a popular destination for visitors wanting to dive, fish and swim around the atolls and reefs teeming with some of the highest marine diversity in the world.
Getting to Placencia is a breeze with Maya Island Air. Flights are available almost hourly from Belize International and it will take you around 30 minutes to get to the destination. Mayan Island Air will save you time and money!
And of course they stayed at Chabil Mar and recommended our guest exclusive resort to their readers.
“The vibe is laid back, understated efficiency, with a knowledgeable concierge service who are able to arrange experiences tailored specifically to suit your interests. Each villa comes with a fully equipped kitchen but if you do not want to cook (and who can blame you) there are private chefs who will deliver a meal to your veranda dining table. The Cafe Mar has a beautifully delicious no fuss menu based on local cuisine, seafood and produce. They will even cook your daily catch for you,” they wrote about Chabil Mar.
Both Michael and Nicole also endorsed Laughing Bird Caye as a diving and kayaking destination.
Monkey River, Cockscomb Basin and Lubaantun were the other popular tours they recommended to travelers who vacation in Placencia.
