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.
