Once a humble fishing village, Placencia has been transformed into a leading tourist destination, with its focus primarily on outdoor activity and natural exploration.
Get outdoors at Laughing Bird Caye National Park and Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Scuba & Snorkeling and Fishing Charters & Tours.

There's still lots to do: get outside with Silk Caye, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and stop by Denyse's Originals.
