Laughing Bird Caye National Park, Placencia

(4.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Laughing Bird Caye National Park represents a distinctive island that sits on an unusually narrow ridge of reef. Named after a bird which used to breed here, the park is home to an abundance of coral habitats and marine life. The tropical island features white sand and palm trees, and is surrounded by coral reefs. This allows visitors to mix snorkeling, diving, and island exploration into their visit, but you must rent a boat and guide out of Placencia. Lunch can be organized through your guide, with possibilities for a picnic or a beach barbeque.

  • We are glad we visited but the snorkeling was disappointing, which we were very surprised at since it is a protected area.  more »
  • Laid back tiny island with great coral heads, lots of elk horn, brain and fire coral with thriving reef life.  more »
  • We stopped in here for lunch in between two scuba dives and loved it. Very pretty and tiny little island with palm trees, pelicans, and picnic tables. Good diving nearby.  more »
