Placencia is a peninsula with miles of natural beaches, virgin mangrove-fringed lagoons, and a wilderness of coral-studded cayes located in the south of the country.

Considered as "the Caye you can drive to", Placencia is a peninsula with miles of natural sandy beaches, virgin mangrove-fringed lagoons, and a wilderness of coral-studded cayes located in the south of the country. The growing community of Placencia retains its traditional "barefoot perfect" charm, and its reputation of the oldest continuously inhabited area in Belize. Famous for its laid-back ambience, diverse accomodation and having some of the best restaurants in southern Belize, this beachfront paradise attracts more and more tourists, whilst preserving its wild side. Placencia is an ideal location for adventure and exploration, as it is situated near dense jungle, flowing rivers, pristine rainforest, and ancient Mayan ruins, such as the well-known Xunantunich site. The peninsula shelters an abundance of plants, flowers, birds, butterflies, and iguanas, to the delight of nature lovers.
