Placencia

Once a humble fishing village, Placencia has been transformed into a leading tourist destination, with its focus primarily on outdoor activity and natural exploration. The rich marine environment of the lagoon includes dolphins, rays, and manatees, and offers particularly calm waters for kayaking through the mangroves and wetlands. Offshore dive sites remain some of the most popular places to visit in Placencia along with nearby jungles, with both habitats pristine and rich in wildlife. Mayan ruins provide a route into the history of the nation and its more jungly areas.
