Maya Beach house description

Across the Placencia Road from the Caribbean Sea, waiting for you on the shores of the Placencia Lagoon is this modern two-bedroom two-bath vacation home known as Casa Laguna Vista. It offers a splendid view of the Maya Mountains, the Placencia Lagoon and, across the road, the Caribbean.

Located on the Placencia Peninsula at Mile Marker 14 in the Plantation Subdivision, this home puts you in the middle of all the things you want to do when you vacation in Belize. Take a 15 minute trip to the Placencia Village and its famous sidewalk or dine at one of the many restaurants along the way. Several dive shops and tour operators in the village offer snorkling and diving trips to the Barrier Reef or Laughing Bird Caye.

Or you can arrange a jungle tour to the Jaguar Preserve (or drive yourself). The tour operators will pick you up at the house so you can enjoy the view of the lagoon and the Maya Mountains while you wait for your native guide. Other activities could include a drive up the very scenic Hummingbird Highway, which winds its way through the Maya Mountains, to Belmopan, the capitol of Belize, for lunch; or you could skip lunch and have a cup of Belizean Coffee and a cinnamon roll at Kropf's Mennonite Bakery, which is located somewhere near the midpoint of the drive up the mountains.

Other trips could include a trip to Red Bank and a two hour trek through the jungle to the nesting grounds of the Scarlet McCaws, an endangered species of very colorful parrots native to Belize and Guatemala. This is a difficult trip to organize and not all guides can take you there, but its a magnificent sight if you can get there.

Or, if all else fails, just sleep in and let the noisy ChaChaLaca birds wake you up in the mornings and just stay at the casa and enjoy the view. The Casa is air-conditioned and fully equipped with two televisions, cable TV channels, a washer and dryer, and a WiFi network for your laptop.
