Close to Placencia Town, next to the Caribbean, close to the airport, steps to the lagoon, three blocks to Splash Dive Shop. A reasonable drive to many inland activities, that would require air or water taxi transit from the keys and islands, - Placencia is the place to be! We recently enjoyed our trip to the Belize Zoo,
Spanish Lookout, and an overnight stay in St. Ignacio, close to Mayan Ruins at the Guatemala Border. Doctors make house calls. Clinic at Independence, across the

About: We have traveled in Mexico and the Caribbean for 5 years, and we were immediately impressed with the warmth and friendly atmosphere at Placencia Village, and particularly by the developer manager,and residents we met at this property. Friendliness, warmth and civility are notable qualities of all the people we have met in this small piece of paradise on earth, Placencia, Belize.
Why Placencia Village: Los Porticos Villas, is a new development built to high standards, on a gorgeous strip of beach. LPV is neither too close, nor too far from an amazing little town. The amenities in the unit and on the property are second to none, Our unit #5A is just a few steps further to the beach and to the pool than others on this site. But that made it affordable to us, and we hope to you as well. You will not regret a visit to Belize, or Los Porticos Villas. And like we snowbirds from B.C., you might easily decide to become regulars, as so many others are doing.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: There is abundant opportunity to explore the rest of Belize by air, water, and land from Placencia township. But once you get to Placencia, you may not want to travel as much as you think. There is plenty to do right there, or in town, or on convenient day trips with excellent guides, who are proud to show off Belize. People we have met are gentle, civil, and polite to one another and to visitors. The climate is second to none, and the Caribbean Sea is the clincher. We are happy to become part time Belizeans, and to share our property experience with you.
