Placencia Vacation Rentals

Placencia is a small town located in the Stann Creek District of Belize in Central America. It is the most southern town on the largest peninsula of the Gulf of Mexico. Placencia sits serenely on the tip of this 11-mile long peninsula and is reputed to be among the oldest communities in Belize offering vacation rentals. The eastern side of the Peninsula boasts vacation rental accommodations nestled in a long expanse of white sand beach and heavy mangrove while the western side is bounded by a long narrow north-south trending bay of the Caribbean Sea.

Maya Beach is a tiny community on the Placencia Peninsula, mid-way between Placencia Village to the south and Riversdale to the north. The closest village is Seine Bight, a historic Garifuna settlement with charming vacation rental accommodations. Approximately 1.5 miles long, the Maya Beach area is made up of colorful apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodations and a few retail establishments including two small grocery stores, a half-dozen bars and restaurants and an art gallery.

Colourful apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals lie nestled along the 3-mile long beach that curves scenically along the Placencia coastline and is regarded by many to be among the most beautiful in the country. The azure water here is cool and deep, and often frequented by dolphins that come quite close to the shore. Just a splash from vacation rentals on the broad white beach is Placencia Lagoon, a wonderfully placid waterway that hosts a rainbow of marine life.

Vacation rental lodging and villas are plentiful along the beachfront and offer accommodation at a range of prices and service levels to suit just about any traveler to Placencia. Its main street is striking because it’s not a street at all but a cement sidewalk that extends a mile or so through the center of town beside picturesque apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals. The laid back pace of life here is ideal because it provides ample opportunity for the town folk to stop what they’re doing and spend a few minutes chatting with visitors. The people are a big part of the place’s charm; friendly and outgoing their welcoming smiles make Placencia even prettier still. The four hundred or so Creole residents that live in Placencia will be happy to share stories of the British buccaneers that founded this little settlement in the 1600s. There are indications that hundreds of years before that Maya used the area for a fishing camp.

With an amazing selection of adventures and attractions, Placencia apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation offer a place where you can experience the thrill of the sea, serenity of nature and the satisfaction of quality family time or the rejuvenation of a quiet retreat for just the two of you.
