One of the the things I have heard again and again that Placencia is missing….is a wine bar….and….now one is opening! Right near Above Grounds, “The Little Wine Bar” is a welcome addition to what the village offers 🙂
One of the things to LOVE about Placencia, that is truly, truly unique to this little village, is how the village connects on Facebook. EVERYTHING there is to know about what’s happening in town, good, bad, awesome, or ugly, can be found on the Facebook groups. One of the things that I miss when I am anywhere else, is with one scroll through, let’s say, “Placencia Restaurants/Food!” you can find out who is open, who is delivering, who has specials, see their menus; even pics of the dinners places are offering. And most of the posts are from little locally-owned food stands, which is one of the greatest experiences for food in the village. Don’t scroll through it if you are hungry. But definitely scroll if you are coming here to get caught up on where to eat! You will always find something new, or an idea of where to go that you haven’t been in a while. You can also learn about the vast array of local food available in the village.
**You will also realize that you can become dependent on these news feeds, and then when you are other places, find yourself saying, what am I going to do??? I don’t know where is open or where to go! 😀

Placencia What’s Happening
The village is in preparation right now for Lobsterfest, which is one of the high points of the year every year. Lobsterfest is an example of the kind of tropical activity/event that you can’t really do in the same way when you live in other climates. There have been a few examples recently of events that I think are just so exotic, fun, and unique – another example is this Parrothead Beach Bar Belize – wow, a 3 day festival/concert on a private island, seriously?? Ranguana Caye is amazing without this added fun so this is pretty much head exploding. Recently, in the village, there was another amazing party with bikers from all over the region, check this out, what an amazing international events, the stories that must have been passed around!!
Oh, and there is some crazy whale shark sightings happening….one of the premier activities people come to Belize to do.
In other news, Belikin is partnering with Heineken – we are all wondering what this will mean about availability of different beers in Belize, or Belikin in the US??? Will have to wait and see…
