Placencia



Placencia

Once a sleepy fishing village, Placencia has emerged as an increasingly popular destination on the Caribbean for adventure. Hikes through the rainforest, kayaking, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, diving and exploring Mayan ruins are some of the top activities in this Belize paradise.


The peninsula boasts 16 miles of tranquil beaches, with a lagoon to the west, the Caribbean to the east, and long stances of peace and quiet in the middle.


The Cayes, the offshore atolls and the barrier reef are some of the main attractions. The barrier reef, at 185 miles long, is the longest in the Western Hemisphere. The cayes (pronounced keys) are islands that are located between the mainland and the barrier reef. Placencia Although the mangrove cayes are normally uninhabitable by humans, they do provide a superior habitat for birds and marine life. Many fish, shellfish, and marine organisms begin their lives within the protection of the mangrove including nesting birds and turtles.


The tropical forests of Belize provide habitats for a wide range of animals including jaguar, puma, ocelot, armadillo, tapir and crocodile. The country is also home to 4,000 species of tropical flowers, including 250 kinds of orchids. It harbors over 500 species of birds that soar through Belize’s vine trailed jungles: fruit-loop keel-billed toucans (Belize’s national bird); jabiru stork, the largest flying bird in the Americas; the rare agami heron; hummingbirds; neon-green-painted parrots; an abundance of macaws, heron and snowy egret that delight sharp-eyed eco-travelers.
