About a hundred miles south of Belize City is the idyllic
Placencia Peninsula, a skinny 16-mile long finger of land
with aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea on the east side
and the Mangrove-lined Placencia lagoon on the west side.
Placencia village is the very southern tip. It is a small
quaint fishing village much like Key West was one hundred
years ago. Home to about 500 Creole fisherman and their
families, Placencia has some of the most beautiful beaches
in Belize, world class diving on the barrier reef 16 miles
away. Deep-sea fishing and fly fishing in unexploited waters
of Southern Belize makes Placencia an angler's dream.
