Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • Fantastic stay!

    "We stayed at Dolce Cabana for a month (March/April). We really enjoyed our trip to Placencia and our stay at Dolce Cabana. It was a short walk to the village amenities and far enough for quiet relaxation. The cabana worked out well for our stay. Plenty of room and a lovely patio outside which we enjoyed. Nicole was a great host, knowledgeable about the area and very helpful with any questions we had. She even had a folder in the cabana with information on the area, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The room was clean and maid service was provided weekly during our stay. We highly recommend staying here."

  • Relaxing -- felt like home

    "We would definitely recommend the Treeptop Villa. Each floor is air conditioned, the kitchen is modern and the master bedroom and bath is wonderful with a veranda off the bedroom. It was always quiet and Aaron was available to help us in any way to make our stay enjoyable. The beach is a very short walk across the lane and is a great place for walks. We enjoyed the restaurants in Placencia and enjoyed swimming at the beach at the harbor. We were not able to scuba dive because of colds but found enough other ways to enjoy this country. We visited a banana farm and the tour was very interesting. Be sure to have some fish meals while you are in Belize. We talked to several locals and learned about the country. The Treetop Villa is a very safe place to stay because of security at the gate."

  • Paradise!!!

    "My friend and I stayed here for 10 days and had an amazing experience! The villa was gorgeous very clean with a private pool and two cabanas looking over the sea. Paul and Gail were very knowledgeable and helpful in choosing and booking tours that met our needs. Our tour guide was even able to pick us up right out front of the villa for the tour. The location is ideal for walking distance to restaurants, bars, attractions, and the beach!!! The villa is ideal for everyone's needs; families, couples and friend getaways. I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend staying here!"

About a half-hour from Placencia is the small village of Monkey River. From there, you can take a leisurely trip upriver spotting wildlife along the way.

The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is about an hour from Placencia. It is the world’s first jaguar sanctuary. Although sightings are rare, touring the sanctuary is still a wonderful experience as you get to see many unique species of plants, animals and birds.

What to Take with You When Staying at Placencia Peninsula Villas

Since it is a tropical destination, you can afford to pack quite light. The essentials are good sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, comfortable shoes and your swimsuit. In general, the clothing is quite casual. Lightweight cotton shirts, shorts and skirts are most suitable for the climate. If you are planning on doing some nature walks or excursions, make sure you have a comfortable pair of walking shoes. Insect repellant is another essential. It’s advisable to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants at night and on jungle tours to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes. Leave valuables such as expensive jewelry at home. If you are keen photographer, pack an extra memory card as you are likely to take loads of photos.
