Placencia, Belize: Come for the Fun When You Crave a Winter Escape

by Larry Waight

Intrepid travelers tend to recognize a small number of tourist types once they develop their senses of observation during their journeys around the world. If that best describes you, you are probably familiar with at least one type of tourist (if not all of them) that you need no help spotting:

-Teens on senior trips
-Seniors grabbing much-needed escapes after a lifetime of hard work
-Romantics who covet their private time with relish
-Families wise enough to expose their youngsters to overseas travel
-And the most intriguing type of all: Visitors dressed in Speedos, bikinis and other swim garb who are confident enough to flaunt their stuff!

If a large part of the reason you love to travel has to do with the characters you meet–especially at all-inclusive resorts that attract fascinating people–keep your eye on Belize and especially on the Placencia peninsula, where a laid-back vibe, access to a languid stretch of the Caribbean Sea, the hemisphere’s best beaches and fabulous attractions have made this the destination of preference–especially for those who crave lots of beach time and a delightfully mixed leisure and party scene.
