In the Heart of Placencia Village
Formerly known as a sleepy fishing village, Placencia is fast becoming one of the top vacation destinations in Belize. Located in the Stann Creek District, Placencia Village is the southern-most settlement along the 18 mile stretch that makes up the Placencia Pennisula. The beach is unmatched and provides visitors and locals a pathway to exciting water adventures such as snorkeling, kayaking, diving, fishing and even a change to interact with gigantic Whale Sharks at a certain point in the year. The narrow 3 mile long sidewalk, which was once the main street in the village, is now bustling with shops, restaurants and other tourist attractions. The friendly locals welcome guests to share in the beauty and charm of their village and add to the pleasant ambiance, making Placencia a truly authentic vacation destination.
