Placencia— named Central America’s Leading Beach Destination

Placencia, Belize

[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″] Not only do we have mile upon mile of stunning beaches, but Placencia is truly the perfect base from which to discover the amazing islands and dives site off the coast, as well as to explore everything that Belize has to offer inland, such as the rainforest, Mayan ruins, cave tubing and zip lining. You can be watching the howler monkeys in the rainforest in the morning and be snorkeling amongst eagle rays and dolphins in the afternoon. I think the award is very well-deserved.

Mr. Einer Gomez, Vice Chairman of the Belize Tourism Board received the “Leading Beach Destination in Mexico & Central America” accolade for Placencia, as well as the “Leading Destination in 2015″ for Ambergris Caye. This year has been a great year for Belize, with the development of outstanding properties, cruise ship terminals and possibly a new airport. The World Travel Awards earned by Belize also confirm what we have known all along: This country is a paradise waiting to be discovered.
