In many ways the Placencia Peninsula presents a microcosm of the best Belize has to offer. The beach view is of the enchanting cayes, barrier reef and beyond. It is an ideal base for amazing diving, snorkeling, and world-class fly fishing. The village of Placencia has maintained its charming appeal with annual events such as the Placencia Sidewalk Arts and Music Festival, and Lobsterfest. A rich multi-cultural utopia awakens in the night at local bars and clubs where free spirits can opt to dance barefoot to the rhythms of Garifuna drums, electrifying riffs of guitars, or dance tunes from beloved local DJs.
