Placencia is the southernmost village in the only peninsula in Belize. We have a lagoon to the west and the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea to the east. Placencia is a small community of about 800 people, located in Stann Creek District. We have clean drinking water and beautiful, clean swimming water!
White Sand Beaches, Restaurants, Dive Shops, Tour Groups, Kayak Rentals, and endless sunny days for sailing and snorkeling!
Each year Placencia celebrates Lobsterfest in June, the Arts Festival in spring and Easter week is also a big time here.
Stay in Placencia for the village charm of this Caribbean Paradise – take day trips to Mayan Ruins in Toledo, to the jungle at Cockscomb, to waterfalls and scenic hikes!
At the end of the day, after soaking up the sun, you may find that you need to take care of a few things (even in paradise!). Placencia has many resources including a health clinic, a vet for your pets, and an office supply store for your business needs. You will also find a café for the caffeine-afflicted, 4 banks and 3 24-hour ATMs. Several restaurants offer wireless access for patrons.
Maya Beach is just north of Placencia on the peninsula. It is a community of about 200 people within 1.5 miles of resorts, homes and restaurants. Most properties here are waterfront or waterview.
