"The Peninsula" an affectionate nod to Spanish Settlers, is a 16 mile strip of paradise, Belizean's own Key West in the Southern Stann Creek District.
Hippy settlers from Canada and Europe were the modern day commercialized humans to develop the village giving it a rich organic and natural serenity offering visitors a variety of experiences fulfilling the wish lists of all. The peninsula is bordered by mangrove-lined lagoons, making this truly a world class area for sport fishing, water-front residences, beautiful boats and yachts from all over the world, intimate resorts, and unique small business commercial endeavors. 16 miles of clear blue Western Caribbean Sea front with expansive views and direct ocean access to nearby Belize Barrier Reef is what draws sophisticated travelers here. Spectacular rainbows are commonplace along palm dotted white sands, while the village itself is famous for it's charm and walkability.
A full on destination experience in and of itself, Placencia's location enables day trips further afield easily and affordably like the Blue Hole, Mayan Kingdoms, Wild Jungle are all day-trippable.
