Placencia-Header-Script-WEB.jpg

A popular and accessible small luxury port, yachts from all over the world visit intimate resorts, stunning culinary hotspots and the natural beauty of Belize.  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 famous Blue Hole, 100's of "cayes" (keys-islands), Mayan Kingdoms, waterfall caves, and wild jungle are all in a day's play.

100's of Cayes

100's of Cayes

Around 450 Belize islands and islets dot the Belize Barrier Reef, the world’s second longest. The largest Belize cayes, energetic Ambergris Caye and laid-back Caye Caulker, are traveler favorites, while the more isolated cayes and atolls exemplify that deserted island fantasy.

Dive the Great Blue Hole

Dive the Great Blue Hole

Made famous by world-renowned underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau, the Great Blue Hole is a gigantic underwater sinkhole surrounded by a ring of coral in the sparkling, shallow water of the Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Its vertical plunge, passing Caribbean Reef Sharks into the ancient cenote, eventually gives way to enormous stalactites and caves.

Fishing

Fishing

From spi to fly to trolling, our abundance of game fish guarantees excellent sport fishing all year round. Since many rivers empty into the Caribbean Sea, you’re practically guaranteed a daily catch, not to mention the fact that our guides have no problem sharing their own “secret” spots with guests. Explore Turneffe Atoll, which provides you with some of the most desired areas in the world for fly-fishing.

Snorkeling

Snorkeling

Explore the kaleidoscope of colors found in hard and soft corals, sponges, and over 500 species of fish and marine life. There are hundreds of snorkeling sites of varying depths along the Belize Barrier Reef. Every snorkel spot is a little different from the other and if you go back to the same spot, each time you will see something different. From schools of fish, to turtles, to the occasional barracuda, there’s a lot going on underwater

Mysteries of Maya

Mysteries of Maya

With only a small percentage of our ancient Maya temples uncovered, it’s not uncommon to come across ancient pieces of pottery or hear that a distant hill is actually a temple. From Caracol and Cerros to Lamanai and little villages and forest areas, pretty much anywhere you go here, you’ll find ancient Maya temples
