Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • Wonderful condo in paradise!

    "This condo is in a beautiful location and has all the amenities you need for a week stay. The condo was clean, well stocked, and has the most amazing views! I enjoyed every morning sitting out on the large porch drinking my coffee and enjoying the view. We will most definitely try to make it back soon! The only thing I would say is that there is construction going on across the waterway and it was a bit noisy during the day."

  • Beautiful Belize!

    "Beautiful condo!! Belize has some of the best sightseeing, sunsets, and food I've had on vacation anywhere. The local people are very friendly and helpful. It's nice to be able to immerse yourself in the culture of Belize. There is fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and the beautiful art show they have in Placencia. Our accommodations were spotless. Beautiful furniture and beds, there is a swimming pool a hot tub anything you could need while on vacation. Highly recommended! I plan on coming back again next year."

  • WOW, what a great place & people.

    "From my very first contact with Cocoplum, I was totally impressed. Aaron alway responded in a timely manner. Answered all questions etc.... Upon arrival their hospitallity continued. Stewart, Aaron & Adam made us feel like part of the community. They gave great recomedations on restaurants and things to do. The Cocoplum development is the most beautiful place on the peninsula. The house is very beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The 3 bedrooms allowed for a personal getaway. The people traveling with me where blown away with the beauty of the house, beach, & people of Cocoplum(from the management team to groundskeepers to security)."

  • Placencia paradise

    "We have enjoyed our stay in the master suite of Beachfront Suites so much these past 2-1/2 weeks (Feb.-Mar. 2015). We enjoyed trips to Placencia Village, to shop at market stalls, and just for looking around; a trip for snorkeling to Laughing Bird Caye; several meals at Maya Beach Bistro (very good); a visit to the Spice Farm down near Indian Creek (very interesting, especially for my husband who cooks with all those spices), and, today, a trip back to Maya Center for a cacao farm tour and chocolate-making adventure (wonderful!). But it has always been good to come back "home" at the end of our days, to relax in the comfort of this lovely abode. We have even made friends with a couple of the neighborhood dogs (one dark, probably older, with white eyebrows and maybe some arthritis; the other blond with a black muzzle and also some arthritis -- both are sweethearts), and have given them a little of the doggie kibble underneath the island sink in the kitchen, as well as a little fresh water. While they seemed grateful for the food and water, they seemed to want human love and contact even more -- we did not hold back! The people of Belize that we have encountered have been friendly, helpful, and genuine, traits that are elusive at best in our own fast-pace culture. Luselie has checked in with us several times, making sure we have everything we need -- she's a gem. Thank you for providing such a comfortable and lovely home-away-from-home for us!"

Belize is a beautiful vacation destination. The lush coastline and barrier reef attract divers from all around the world that come to explore its underwater wonders. It’s a place where you can enjoy nature, partake in a wide variety of activities and still take some time out to simply enjoy the view. The Placienda Peninsula is a popular destination for honeymooners and people who are looking for a peaceful beach vacation. Travelers that like to explore nature and have an interest in bird watching, butterflies and unusual flora can explore the forests and trails. A little further inland, there are a number of Mayan ruins that will be of interest to people who enjoy studying ancient cultures.

Excursions and Things to Do near Placencia Peninsula House Rentals

Placencia’s primary attraction is the barrier reef that runs the length of Belize. The second-largest barrier reef in the world, it has spectacular dive sites and is an amazing natural phenomenon. Underwater canyons, walls and coral bommies are home to host of reef fish and marine creatures.

Sailing is a great eco-friendly way to explore the coastline near Placencia. Cruise charters can take you to snorkel on the reefs and explore secluded beaches and cays. Sit back and relax with a cocktail and enjoy cruising the calm tropical waters.

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. If you’re fortunate, you could see the shy manatees, green iguana, boa constrictors, crocodiles and wild deer. The local guides are extremely knowledgeable and provide an entertaining narration during the tour. The bird life is abundant and occasionally you can hear the monkeys in the trees above.

To see the Mayan Ruins at Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit, you will need to join a full-day excursion. On it, you can see the partially excavated sites and hear about the ancient mythology from the local guides. It’s an eerie and enchanting experience.

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.

When to Visit Belize Vacation Rentals

Placencia is a destination that has a year-round warm tropical climate. From May to November, the weather is hot and humid and tropical storms can occur at the end of the season. The summer months are somewhat dryer and run from December to April. The most popular travel period is between December and February which coincides with the dryer weather. Travel during peak season does come at a premium and if you are on a budget, it's worth looking at traveling in mid-season. The low season is during September and October when hurricanes are most likely to occur.
