Located on the picturesque Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize, The Captain’s House is a beautiful, one story, solid Mahogany house. It is fully furnished with three bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, all nestled in half an acre of private land. Step onto the front verandah and view the Caribbean, a mere 200 feet away. There is nothing like it in the entire village of Placencia.
The village itself, is a hidden jewel with miles of white sandy beaches, ending at the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Placencia was an ancient fishing village once inhabited by Mayan Indians. These days it is famous for its "Main Street" (locally called the sidewalk), the narrowest in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World records. This sleepy little village (Literally, just about everything closes up by 10 PM.) is home to about 600 locals plus a few tourists passing through or just hanging out. There is a good supply of restaurants and a few beach bars to quench your thirst.
Southern Belize is still relatively undeveloped, making it a paradise for nature lovers. Howler monkeys, manatees and an abundance of birds and other wildlife can be seen on the Monkey River tour. Belize is also known for its large coral reef system-second only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The reef protects the entire coastline making Placencia a playground for snorkelers, scuba divers, and fishermen alike.
Kayak the mangroves in our lovely lagoon. Hike the Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve. Visit the Mayan ruins of Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit. Or just relax on the beach. You can do it all, or you can do nothing at all!
