Placencia is the name of both a slender, 25-kilometer (16-mile) peninsula that runs parallel to the Belizean mainland and the village at its southernmost tip. Home to some of the country's most spectacular beaches, this long ribbon of land is flanked to the west by a lagoon and views of the distant Maya Mountains and to the east by mangroves and the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Placencia Village draws the majority of the peninsula's visitors and is a relaxed, somewhat ramshackle spot with dive shops, restaurants, bars, and a colorful mix of expat and Creole locals. Just off Placencia's shores, you'll find diving, snorkeling, and sailing; visitors can also explore nearby mangroves and deserted cayes by kayak or fish for tarpon, tuna, or mackerel.
This afternoon you will enjoy a wonderful nature and wildlife tour where you take a river cruise up a lush jungle river keeping a weather eye out for crocodiles, green iguanas, a menagerie of birds and then enjoy a moderate, 40 min jungle hike looking for howler monkeys, birds and other wildlife. Guests are met at their hotel and transferred to the dock where they board their boat for this trip. Lunch is included in this tour and guests will also need to pay the US$1.00 entrance fee. After lunch the guests can enjoy a tour of the village itself before heading back to Placencia. On the way back to Placencia, the captain will move slowly along the lagoon and mangroves to give guests a chance to spot Manatees.
