Affordable Caribbean Seaside Land on the Placencia Peninsula
Located at the north end of Placencia Peninsula, in the quaint fishing village of Riversdale, is an excellent piece of Caribbean seaside land for sale. This superb investment opportunity boasts beautiful ocean views, and cool breezes and is just steps from the beach. The site, located at the end of a small, sandy road, is quiet and feels secluded, yet is within walking distance of all that the area offers. Established coconut trees are already on the Caribbean seaside land, providing shade and added privacy. It is a lovely lot that is 102 ft deep by 77 ft wide and is a perfect place for building the home of your dreams.
Riversdale, a quaint fishing village located at the northernmost end of the Placencia Peninsula, sits directly on the Caribbean Sea. Inhabited by a mix of locals and ex-pats, the atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, broken only by the sea breeze, swaying palm trees, and the occasional flock of parrots passing overhead. This great little village boasts two restaurants, a bar, and a boutique hotel.
Twelve minutes from Riversdale, we move through the exclusive stretch of Caribbean Way and The Plantation, followed by Maya Beach. This relaxed section of the peninsula features some of the best restaurants in the area and is home to the only bowling alley in Belize!
At the southern tip of the peninsula, you will find yourself in Placencia, a quaint village with all the excitement of a major tourist destination. First, enjoy a stroll along the famous sidewalk, a beachside promenade lined with fun bars and fantastic restaurants. Then, book a tour and experience Belize with some of the most knowledgeable guides in the country.
North of Riversdale, we leave the peninsula and head inland. Explore the Cockscomb Basin Forest Reserve, which has nearly 100,000 acres of protected forest on the slopes of the Maya Mountains. Hike trails, see waterfalls, and keep your eyes open for the elusive jaguar. Go alone or enjoy the expertise of the local guides. Here you can also take the opportunity to interact with the Mayan community, where they’ll show you traditional chocolate-making techniques; you’ll even get the chance to make and taste your own! Finish the day with a hearty Mayan meal before heading back home.
