Belize City

Relax on sunny beaches and explore dazzling reefs

Sandwiched between the Caribbean Sea and a nearby lagoon, the small resort town of Placencia is as laid-back as it gets. Its sun-drenched streets are criss-crossed with ambling footpaths and its wooden houses creek in the warm sea breeze. Combine this chilled atmosphere with the town’s welcoming Caribbean feel and you can see why holidays in Placencia are so popular.

Placencia Lagoon is an important breeding ground for saltwater crocodile, manatee and turtle. You can see even more of the region’s colourful marine life in the nearby coral reef. Teeming with all sorts of ocean-dwelling creatures, Belize’s coral reefs are one of the country’s most popular attractions. Spend your days diving the reef, visiting the ‘cayes’ that lie just off the shore and relaxing on the town’s beautiful beaches. You can also enjoy a nature ‘boat float’ on the quiet waters of Placencia Lagoon or visit nearby attractions like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaguar Reserve.
