Placencia’s Hottest Attraction: Ranguana Caye
Currently ranked as the hottest activity to do in Placencia by TripAdvisor, a trip to Ranguana Caye is a chance to see Belize’s spectacular natural scenery at its finest.
In Belize, islands are known as cayes (pronounced “keys”), and Ranguana Caye is truly something special. A tiny, two-acre island surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, Ranguana Caye is the ideal setting for anyone who wants to play “castaway on a tropical island.” A privately-owned island, Ranguana Caye is the perfect place to relax in a hammock underneath palm trees, walk along the pure white sands of the beach, or strap on some gear and head out into the water to paddle board, kayak, fish, snorkel.
Whether you’re in Belize on your honeymoon, as part of a romantic getaway, enjoying a fun family vacation, or simply an adventurer looking for something new, few destinations can compare to a trip to Ranguana Caye. With all the excitement of a Robinson Cruesoe experience with just enough conveniences to make it comfortable, it’s easy to see why visitors in Placencia have made day trips to Ranguana Caye the most popular local attraction.
Note: although yacht moorings are available at Ranguana Caye, it’s important to remember that the island is privately owned, so all visitors should arrange for their arrival ahead of time or book with Barefoot Services who is an official booking agent.
