    A great example of what national parks should be like. Pristine waters surrounding a nice sandy beach Caye. Live in ranger will give you a 10-minute talk about the island and what you can and cannot do. Bathrooms on the island along with a large picnic shelter. Snorkeling around the Caye was excellent. Do what the ranger says, and this reef should stay healthy. Please do not touch the coral and wear reef safe sunscreen. Places as nice as this are disappearing all too quickly.

    You are able to tour a working Fyffes banana farm that was spotlighted on HGTV and see how their daily operations work. The tour is extremely informative, well done, and definitely worth a visit. Once the tour is over, you get to enjoy fresh green banana chips that were cooked while you are there. They were SOOO good!!!

    Lola & her husband were a joy to speak to about Placencia & art in general. Wonderful sense of humour that allowed for some lively chuckles. Needless to say, I purchased several of her pieces- particularly ones that gave me a good belly laugh. Her daughter expertly rolled the canvas ones to make for easy transport. Thanks for your artistic insight Lola. Now I can enjoy them at home in Toronto.

    Great place and area to pick up some local gifts and hang out with the locals. Also right near where the fishermen bring in their catch of the day. Placencia Village, at the very end of the 16 mile-long peninsula is a great cultural experience.

    We visited the water falls for a later morning/early afternoon visit since we needed sometime out of the sun and it was amazing! It is only a short walk to the water falls from the parking area. There were very few people there and eventually we had the top falls to ourself! The restaurant is still closed to plan to pack a lunch!

    If you're into paintings, this is not to be missed. Local artists and a wide variety of styles. Also visit Ex's wood shop just up the road!

    My daughter and I joined the regular crowd at Belize Fit while vacationing. Tony is great ... nice all around WOD. The people in the class are friendly and helpful. I didn't feel uncomfortable at all working out at Belize Fit. I wish I had a car so I could have went to more workouts. It's an awesome option for those who like to stay fit on vacation or want to have a few extra drinks at happy hour and not feel so guilty about it! :) Bring Water and a towel ... it gets hot!!

    Lovely, quiet & in the middle of nowhere. We enjoyed every minute we spent here relaxing after our snorkling trip.

    We happened to be snorkelling at Laughing Bird Caye and there was some jewellery for sale there at a very small kiosk but we did not buy any since we do not take money with us when we go snorkelling. The gentleman in the kiosk told us we could get the jewelry we wanted at the creator's shop in Placencia. It turned out that The Art Affair Gallery was across the street from where we were staying. I ended up buying a few pairs of earring for my wife, daughter etc. that were very unique in that they were made from Lionfish fins. They were beautiful and very much appreciated by all the girls. The Art Affair Gallery had many other types of jewelry, all of it very nice and mostly things you will not get any where else. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and friendly. The prices were very reasonable.

    This was the only microbrew we found during our stay in Belize. Good beers. IPA, stout, ale and Pilsner. The food is pretty Americanized. Pizza, burgers, steak etc. the seating is outside on the deck of a converted barge. Super clean, nice staff

    Our guide, Wilder, was a joyful person who shared a wealth of history, names & purposes of plant life, names & habits of wildlife, and much, much more! Ask him a question, and you will get a thorough and thoughtful answer! He makes learning and exploring lots and lots of fun!

    Learning how the culinary world has benefited from the creativity and ingenuity of the people of Belize was an eye opening dose of perspective. The food of course was delectable, ranging in variety and appeal.

    Our guide Peter was amazing. He enlightened us with a spirited history lesson that spanned generations. He also presented us in a way that made me feel comfortable in Placencia, which has set the bar high for international trips.

    This is a must visit for anyone seeking to be enlightened on their trip to Belize overall and Placencia in particular.
