Placencia

Welcome to Placencia

Placencia is a beach resort on the Caribbean coast of Belize. It’s at the southern tip of the Placencia Peninsula, known for its palm-lined beaches. Between the peninsula and the mainland, Placencia Lagoon is home to manatees and saltwater crocodiles. Offshore, there are dive sites on the coral Belize Barrier Reef. To the north, the Garífuna community of Seine Bight is a hub for traditional drumming and dance.

 

Despite its small size, Placencia Village is charming. ... Its long, narrow main street lets you stroll past its vibrant boutiques, shops, bars, and restaurants. Further down the peninsula, you can experience Garifuna culture in Seine Bight Village and Dangriga Town
