upon arrival

this is the pennisula from air - the sea on one side the lagoon on another. The airstrip runs between the two so hang on!!

Placencia beach

The clear waters of the carribean. Placencia is a known water destination, the beach is one of the better ones in Belize and at most times quite empty. The water is always perfect temperture. Be warned that once away from the bigger hotels the beach is left in it's natural state - this being seaweed and in some places garbage.

    Nice page on Placencia. I am investigating it for a probable trip to Belize in 2008.

    Hello YolandaC Nice pictures and tips. I was in Placencia in late March. Sailed out to the islands and stayed at the Raguana Inn for a few days. Hope to go back one day. Also did the Jungle and Mayan tour. Good Luck on your travels Allan

    Hey there, I was going to sugest the Flames can still miss the playoffs until I saw the swim-up bar in Belize. I completely lost the train of thought. Rhat looks VERY relaxing. Glad you had fun. Griff

    A very interesting view of Placencia! It looks most relaxing by the ocean.
