Placencia Belize

Belize City, Belize

Placencia is one of the most pleasant places for relaxation. The name is a Spanish term for “Point Pleasant”.

Placencia, Belize has one of the most exhilirating beaches in the world. Only consisting of a small community of less than 500 people, the place is perfect for tranquil vacations. The place is also known as “barefoot perfect” because the streets which are just the width of sidewalks, encourage people to walk due to lack of paved roads. The main street sidewalk is also amazing as it is the Guinness Book World of Records' narrowest street. Diving and snorkeling are a must as the second largest barrier reef in the world is just situated a few meters from the shore. The place is peaceful, wherein the breeze gently sways in the coconut palms, and the waves slowly break in the shore.

Relax your mind and your body at the most pleasant Placencia.
