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. Planning Placencia trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • It's a tropical island in the middle of the Caribbean. It is definitely a 5.
  • Beautiful little island. Wonderful experience snorkeling in the reef. Yours a bit pricey. I expected less expensive options in Belize.
  • This is the #best_marine reserve in Belize! Visit when you in the jewel!
  • Great snorkeling at this spot. The park rangers live out here which is incredible because it's so isolated. They also have Coral nurseries and part of the island is a bird sanctuary. The rangers were super nice, inviting and provided some great education about the reefs. You can bring out drinks & food to grill and hang out as long as you want
  • Its a beautiful and amazing experience. A great time, snorkeling and pacific place.
