Touropia, a popular travel site in the world has selected the beautiful and gorgeous Peninsula of Placencia as a top best beach destination in the Caribbean.
“A popular peninsula, Placencia has the best mainland beaches in Belize, plus some of the most amazing offshore coral cayes. The eastern side of the Placencia Peninsula is a long expanse of white sand beach. The western side is bounded by a long and narrow bay. The beautiful beaches . . . make it a great place to relax” asserts the article about Placencia Belize.
“Aruba, St Martins, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Cuba, Saint Lucia, Guadelope, Jamaica, Anguilla, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos, Antigua and Barbuda, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands (UK), Barbados, Martinque, Grenada, Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Virgin Islands (US) were the other countries that made it on the list. Splendid company to be among, and we are very proud of this honor for Placencia, home to Chabil Mar Resort”, says Larry France, Marketing Manager at Chabil Mar.
“It is interesting to observe how Placencia has evolved from once a sleepy fishing village to now an increasingly popular eco destination on the Caribbean, while maintaining its Belizean culture and typical everyday life.”
“Tropic Air and Maya Air, the local Belize air carriers, have also made it easy to access Placencia from the different tourist destinations in Belize especially from the Cayo District, the ecotourism capital of the country, with direct flights from multiple towns and villages throughout Belize. Last year in November, Tropic Air started offering direct flights from Maya Flats Airstrip in San Ignacio to Placencia and return. I personally took this flight, in January, after visiting one of our premier Jungle Lodge partners, Chaa Creek, while discussing our joint Jungle and Sea vacation package. It was so beautiful to fly over the Maya mountain range from Cayo to Placencia.
Just a magnificent experience with waterfalls to be seen cascading out of the mountains in the depths of the uninhabited jungle!
This means that you can start your vacation in the Rainforest exploring Maya temples, caves and waterfalls and then head to Placencia to enjoy the white sandy beaches and the spectacular snorkeling, fishing, diving and sailing among the multiple offshore islands (cayes – pronounced ‘keys’).”
“Placencia is also an ideal base to explore outdoor adventures like hiking or trekking the jungle trails of Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, where the first Jaguar Reserve in the World was established and visiting Maya Temples like Nim Li Punit or Lubaantun in Southern Belize or visiting resident howler monkeys along Monkey River.” If you are interested in a Belize or Placencia vacation, please visit our website chabilmarvillas.com.
