The Town of Placencia 
Just a short walk from the Chabil Mar beachfront resort, Placencia is a traditional fishing village that is sure to catch your fancy, with its many galleries, shops, and restaurants.

Palm-lined beaches make for a picturesque ambiance to soak in the sun, and a trip to the Placencia Lagoon gives you a front row seat to see manatees and saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitats.

If you want to get to know the local culture, this is the place to do it - the Seine Bight Garifuna community happily invites travelers to experience traditional drumming and dancing. 

And adventurers must take this chance to head out to the Belize Barrier Reef for some of the best snorkeling!
Great for any occasion or group!
Unlike many other destinations that cater almost exclusively to certain groups, ages, or experiences, Belize beachfront vacations make for an excellent vacation no matter what you're celebrating.

Families with young children can enjoy some relaxing time on the beach that combines with active exploration of nature and history as you snorkel among atolls & reefs and explore the ancient Mayan ruins.

Active travelers will love the opportunities to get your blood flowing with sea kayaking, paddleboarding, jungle exploration, visits to ancient ruins, snorkeling, and perhaps even SCUBA diving. 

Honeymooners delight in the chance to get away from it all and enjoy being pampered in the five-star resorts and lodges with unparalleled service and comfort.

Solo travelers never have to worry about finding ways to explore and keep busy. And older travelers can design their own itinerary to meet whatever interests and desires you might have.
