What’s new/what’s closed for low season in Placencia, Belize??

Things change a lot in Belize – there are many, many businesses here that stay open and can be relied on year after year, and then there are others that shut down for low season, or shut down and sometimes we don’t know why! Placencia as a village runs on Facebook, so a lot of people get their information from different Facebook groups. Unless you are a frequent visitor, it is very hard to keep up with changes, so here are some updates you may have missed!Casino reopened – The Placencia Casino up in the northern part of the peninsula has reopened, HERE is their Facebook page – always smart to check here to make sure they are open the night you want to go. Sometimes they have shuttles from the village as well.

Placencia Yoga – new hours (from a Facebook post!)
“Ms. Pam’s back and happy to offer you Core Yoga & Stretching for all levels at the Wild Orchid on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays at 10am for only $10BZ. Happy to share my 20 years of teaching experience from the USA. Check out my FB pages for more information (see below)”

Citrus Sensations pizza – Just sayin’ – our guests have been raving that their pizza is amazing, so it is worth checking out. Especially since Cha Chi’s pizza is recently closed (for now/forever? Not sure yet. But for your pizza fix, try above!)
