The Must-Visit Caribbean Destination You’ve Never Heard Of

In a recent article published by the trend-setting fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue, the small nation of Belize in Central America was declared “the must-visit Caribbean destination you’ve never heard of.” Long overshadowed by better-hyped resorts and adventure vacation opportunities in Mexico and Costa Rica, Belize has recently emerged to become one of the hottest vacation destinations in the region.

The Vogue article highlighted the sleepy fishing village of Placencia located on the eponymous Placencia Peninsula on Belize’s southeastern Caribbean coast. With just 1,000 permanent residents, the village has slowly grown to become the eco-tourism hub of the country, mixing unspoiled nature, pristine beaches, and an eclectic collection of bars, spas, dive shops, and cafes to offer visitors a chance to experience Belize at its finest. Placencia has multiple daily air connections to Belize City and other prominent destinations in the country. Placencia can also be reached overland, approximately a three-hour drive from the international airport in Belize City.

“We are proud of everything that the Placencia Peninsula has done lately, especially its ability to draw increasing numbers of visitors to the unspoiled natural environment and ‘barefoot friendly’ Caribbean lifestyle that makes Placencia so special,” said Larry France, marketing manager of Chabil Mar. “We were happy to read the glowing praise found in the recent article in Vogue and look forward to welcoming Vogue readers to the relaxed rhythms and natural beauty of Placencia.”

Chabil Mar is an award-winning luxury resort located on the beautiful Caribbean shore of the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize. An oasis of comfort and beauty, Chabil Mar features elegantly appointed villas, a seafront pier, bar, tropical garden, and gourmet restaurant just a few minutes’ walk from Placencia Village. Guests of Chabil Mar enjoy the free use of bicycles, high-speed wireless internet, and kayaks. Chabil Mar also organizes tours to all of the top attractions in the country, including the nearby sailing, scuba diving, and snorkeling paradise that is the Belize Barrier Reef.

Founded in 1892 as a weekly newspaper, Vogue has since emerged to become one of the most famous and respected fashion and lifestyle magazines in the world. With 21 different international editions and monthly circulation figures of over 1 million just for the U.S. edition alone, Vogue and its long-time editor-in-chief Anna Wintour continue to set the standards for glamor, beauty, fashion, and a global perspective on the best travel destinations in the world.
