What to Do in Placencia This Summer

What to Do in Placencia This Summer

If you’re looking for a fun and exciting summer vacation, look no further than the Placencia Peninsula in Belize. Located on the Caribbean coast in southeastern Belize, the Placencia Peninsula is 16 miles of golden sand beaches, iconic fishing villages, quirky cafes, seafood restaurants, and beautiful ocean views.

The Placencia Peninsula is close to all of the best things to see and do in Belize, including the nearby Belize Barrier Reef with its hundreds of gorgeous islands. You can play castaway for a day at places like Ranguana Caye, watch sea turtles dig their nest at the Laughing Bird Caye National Park, or enjoy world-class sailing, scuba diving, fishing, and snorkeling at sites like the Silk Cayes, and Gladden Spit.

All the excitement of the mainland is just a short distance from the Placencia Peninsula as well. Enjoy top activities like boat tours on the pristine Monkey River, hiking through the trackless wilderness of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (home to all five of Belize’s native big cat species), exploring the depths of ancient ceremonial caves like Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM), or marveling at the colossal pyramids and palaces left behind by the ancient Maya at sites like Xunantunich, Caracol, and Lubaantun.

Summer really is the best time to visit Belize as it falls during the country’s off season, meaning you’ll escape all the crowds while enjoying competitive prices on travel, lodging, and tours. All the top airlines now offer non-stop flights to Belize from major cities across Canada and the United States, including American, United, Delta, WestJet, and Southwest Airlines.

And one of the country’s most popular festivals occurs in June in Placencia. The famous Lobsterfest features chefs from around the country competing to come up with a dazzling array of sumptuous and innovative dishes using the world’s tastiest crustacean, the perfect accompaniment to live music, games, and fun activities for the whole family.

Whether you’re looking for a solo adventure trip, a wholesome family vacation, a romantic summer getaway, or want to get married and/or enjoy a fabulous honeymoon, Placencia is your destination this summer.
