Where is Placencia, Belize?

Placencia is a peninsula on the Caribbean coast of Belize,  measuring about 1 mile across and 16 miles north to south. It is located is approximately 160 miles (by land) south of Belize City and 33 miles south of Dangriga, the capital of Stann Creek District. The Placencia peninsula known for its palm-lined beaches, is home to manatees and saltwater crocodiles. The nearby Garífuna community of Seine Bight is a hub for traditional arts, drumming and dance.

There are Fishing sites and mangrove-lined lagoons on the Western coast of the peninsula. The Eastern, or Caribbean, coast offers many dive sites on the coral Belize Barrier Reef.

The small village of Placencia is located at the southern part of the peninsula where it joins the mainland. The sleepy little town is welcoming to foreign travelers and offers internet access, restaurants, cafes, luxury resorts, and dive shops. It is still primarily a fishing-oriented community and it is possible to hire boats there for fishing expeditions in Belize lagoons or mangroves. =
