Advantages of Going All-Inclusive with This Placencia, Belize Resort

by Megan Rodden

People travel for different reasons: adventure, discovery, business, health and wellness, and plain old relaxation.  There are no right or wrong ways to travel and you should choose a trip that suits your goals.  If you’re dreaming of an easy and stress-free tropical escape, then an all-inclusive vacation might be just the thing.  Luckily for you, the Placencia Resort in southern Belize has just added an all-inclusive option for visitors seeking no-hassle holidays. Here’s why this vacation package is the simple choice when it comes to effortless R and R.

A Getaway Without the Stress of Planning

Travelers are drawn to all-inclusives for their simplicity and value.  Save the time and headache of researching destinations, logistics, and dining options ahead of time.  An all-inclusive vacation takes the burden of planning off you so you can simply kick back, relax, and enjoy.  Everything you need is included, down to the complimentary shuttle transfer to and from the local airstrip, so you needn’t even worry about hailing a taxi. Booking individual aspects of your vacation can be tedious and taxing but an all-inclusive trip rescues you from managing all the moving parts of your vacation.

The Placencia Resort has all the amenities you would want—stylish and modern suites kitted out with jacuzzi tubs and air conditioning, a fitness center, private beach, lush tropical landscape, attentive staff, and of course, a colossal pool with a swim-up bar.  You’ll never want to leave the property, but should you choose to wander, the accommodating front-desk staff are happy to arrange auxiliary excursions for you.

Save money with The Placencia’s inclusive food and beverages packages and enjoy mouth-watering meals and bottomless local drinks.  This is where relaxation meets indulgence, and the Caribbean Sea meets soft white sand.  This is what vacations should be!

  All-inclusives have gotten a bad reputation over the years for serving sub-par food and watered-down drinks, and while that may be true of some other Caribbean destinations, Belize’s all-inclusive offerings break the stereotype.  There are no mega-resorts or global hotel chains here, you’ll find a country-wide inclination towards quality over quantity when it comes to the tourism experience.  Don’t expect re-heated fare in chaffing dishes and frozen pizzas offered to the masses. Instead, you should expect locally caught seafood, farm-fresh eggs, and exotic fruit.  The resort’s restaurants are provisioned by their very own organic farm so meals are always fresh, wholesome, and made to order. 

Enjoy Family Travel Made Simple

The Placencia is a safe and simple vacation choice for families and a place where children can play, explore, and socialize with other travelers without ever leaving the boundaries of the resort.  Kayak, paddleboard, or snorkel directly from the beautiful beach until your heart’s content.  Take lunch in your bare feet and damp bathing suit under the thatch roof of the poolside lounge.  Walk the winding paths through the property and greet the many resident iguanas who sun themselves on the stones.  Cheerful and chirpy green parrots are frequent fliers through the resort’s gardens as well as the striking Blue Morpho butterfly.  Visitors can still get a taste of the local scene on-site at the resort’s “cultural nights” which include drumming and dancing demonstrations from a collective of Garifuna performers and a Belizean buffet of local flavors.

Inclusive packages are a wonderful value at $150 per adult (half price for children aged 5-12 and free for those under 5) which includes all meals, local alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and on-site activities.  Meal plan only options are also offered. 

The Placencia is a Muy’ono Resort, the largest collection of resorts in Belize, offering unique experiences from jungle to sea or private island retreats. Visit their website and subscribe to the mailing list for last-minute deals and other promotions.
