Remax Vip Belize : Scarlet Macaws, humpback whale sightings
It has been a thrilling week in Placencia!!We had a once in a blue moon sighting in Placencia this past week….this poor humpback whale got a bit off course and ended up inside the reef wall! Maybe he decided that it was time for some warmer waters….thanks to Annelise for taking pictures and doing her part to inform the right people to get the whale back on course! Many people got to experience as long an a half hour of boating next to the whale!!

And for your dinner plans……if you are looking for a unique and exotic place to eat while you are in Placencia, we recommend a quick 10 minute cab ride to Tiger, an Indian Caribbean restaurant that is one of the most exotic and memorable places meals I’ve had!
