hut in Placencia, Belize

Placencia, Belize

The Placencia Peninsula, home of Belize's luxury Villas at Cocoplum, is in the southern district of Stann Creek and is considered by travel guides and residents to be the premier beach in Belize.

Likened in many ways to the world renowned Caribbean Hotel Zone beach in Cancun and Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, the white sand beaches of these Placencia villas offer a stunning shoreline and turquoise waters, as the peninsula extends 23 miles out into the Caribbean Sea.

The key difference at Cocoplum in Placencia is that nothing will be built over 3 stories. And the eastern coastline of Placencia offers spectacular diving environments provided by the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, along with the 185 mile long coral barrier reef - the largest in the western hemisphere.

Activities in Placencia

This Caribbean, aquatic oasis off the eastern coast of Placencia hosts a myriad of opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking, deep sea fishing, saltwater fly-fishing, Caye island exploration and water sports. On the western front of the Placencia Peninsula lies the breathtaking Placencia lagoon, teeming with wildlife, birds, unforgettable scenery and the docile, winsome manatee. When you tire of swimming, take advantage of all of the Placencia restaurants or go shopping at one of the many quaint shops in downtown Placencia.

Placencia, Inside and Out

The Villas at Cocoplum draw inspiration from the surrounding Placencia scenery, wildlife and adventure, and always with an eye to your comfort. With architecture that perfectly balances indoor and outdoor living and comes alive with a Caribbean, contemporary feel, the charm of Placencia is not only outside your window, it is infused within your peaceful Placencia villa.
Just outside the door of your comfortable, new villa, enjoy a clear view of the Mayan Mountain range and easy access to fantastic exploration tours of Mayan sites such as Nim Li Punit and Lubaantun.

Wildlife tours and preserves such as the Jaguar Wildlife Preserve and Monkey River tours are just some of the many activities near Placencia and the surrounding areas that allow glimpses of the boisterous Howler Monkey, peaceful manatee or striking tropical birds.

"I've swum in the waters of half a dozen Caribbean islands, but never before have I seen such a vast array of marine life in one place. Rainbow parrot fish and yellow tail snappers, blue-spotted damsels and striped sergeant majors, four-foot nurse sharks and playful stingrays - I feel like an extra in a Discovery Channel special. In Belize, you're speechless a lot. Get used to it."
