Placencia is Belize's number one beach destination. It is a small, increasingly popular fishing and tourist village in tropical, beautiful Belize at the tip of a sixteen mile long narrow peninsula with great sandy beaches and palm trees, caressed by the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
The friendly community has a very relaxing and easy-going atmosphere with welcoming, mostly Creole and English speaking locals. It attracts everyone from backpackers to naturalists. Once you settle into the slow pace it is hard to move on!
Lying right off-shore is the second largest barrier reef in the world with its magnificent underwater world and a chain of beautiful, romantic cayes (islands) scattered along its entire length, offering snorkelers,
divers and fishermen unlimited opportunities!
Day trips bring guests inland to discover even more natural wonders like the magnificent rain forest and mysterious ancient Mayan sites.

The property is owned by Swiss Claudia Hardegger who has come to Belize more than sixteen years ago and calls this peaceful and charming place her home now. She will try her best to make your stay enjoyable and pleasant!
