Placencia is an altogether outstanding choice for a vacation destination. Situated in the southern part of Belize, it is a coastal village surrounded by the crystalline Caribbean Sea and placid Placencia Lagoon, but connected to the mainland by a slim, 16-mile-long peninsula. It is picturesque, unpretentious, and utterly laid-back. Romance meets relaxation meets adventure in this charming little hamlet, making it the perfect place for vacationing couples. Here’s why you and your significant other should plan a trip to Placencia and where you can stay and play while visiting.
Head to Placencia for a Dreamy Couples Getaway
Placencia Village is located at the southern tip of the larger Placencia Peninsula and boasts all the cute and quirky character that you would expect from a tiny beachside town in the Caribbean. Plenty of palm trees, colorful houses, lively beach bars, and hand-painted signs speckle the sandy shores. North of the village you’ll find peace and quiet and easy access to inland adventures such as touring Maya Temples or trekking through caves. Placencia is a best-of-both-worlds location where you can experience sea and mountain, coral reef and jungle canopy, all in one vacation.
Where to Stay on the Peninsula: Chabil Mar Villas
When couples vacation and decide on accommodation they typically need to choose between being close to the action of nightlife, restaurants, and shopping or finding quiet tranquility by being removed from the center and therefore far from entertainment. When visiting Placencia, couples need not compromise. Chabil Mar Villas is the epitome of this best-of-both-worlds ideal; it offers proximity to nightlife and village amenities for entertainment yet provides the peace and privacy that couples seek on their vacation.

Enjoy the understated elegance of this small, exclusive beachfront property where privacy and personalized service are paramount. Chabil Mar is renowned for its well-appointed and beautifully decorated rooms, exquisite dining, immaculate grounds, and perfect position being pressed between the sea and lagoon on the outskirts of the village.
This is the ideal base camp for any adventure, and the perfect retreat to retire to afterward for ultimate solitude and somnolence. Romantic and casual, Chabil Mar offers the perfect vacation for couples seeking a blend of relaxation and activity. Spend your days diving the Belize Barrier Reef or screaming through the jungle canopy on zip lines; unwind with poolside cocktails and a couples massage on the beach.
