Kick Off Your 2023 Summer in Placencia, Belize

June is officially summer, and beach lovers should make a beeline for Belize! For travelers seeking a remote, but easily accessible, summer escape, we’re here to pitch the Placencia Peninsula. Hundreds of islands just a quick boat ride away, a cheerful community intersected by a narrow sidewalk, and barefoot-perfect beaches make Placencia the perfect domain for summer activities like fishing, diving, swimming, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and even kayaking.

Regardless if you visit Belize in June, July, or August, you’ll enjoy plenty of things to do both on and off the Caribbean Sea — especially from a locale like Placencia Village. Found in the south, this 16-mile-long peninsula has grown from its humble fishing roots into an eclectic strip of resorts, restaurants, and old-world charms. Twenty miles in either direction lands you two separate adventures: take a boat from the short to southern Belize Barrier Reef or road trip to the mainland’s lush rainforests, caves, Maya sites, and more.

In June, you celebrate things like Father’s Day with a one-of-a-kind fishing experience going deep-dropping, fly-fishing, or trolling for favorites like ruby red Queen Snappers, Permits, or Sailfish, respectfully.

And in July, lobster lovers rejoice as of the first of the month when the open season starts again! Slated for July 14 - 16 this year, the Placencia Lobster Fest celebrates with festive block parties, competitions, music, games, and more. A labor of love for Belizean fishers to fishers to get this meal fresh to your plate – whether fried, grilled, stewed, or even on a stick — you can e enjoy lobster however you like it starting July 1.

During the month of August, cool off on one of the hottest times of the year with swimming, watersports, and even island hopping. Skylines fuse with the Caribbean Sea for glass-calm reference and the state of Zen, especially snorkeling and diving. That’s not all though! Because with zip lining, hiking, canoeing or tubing, caving, ATVing, horseback riding, and fishing, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities to keep families busy.

As for accommodations, experiencing Placencia is best from the village because not only are you seafront on one of the best beaches in the country, but you’re also hyperconnected with the Village’s offerings without compromising peace or quiet.
